A total of 15 high-tech construction and investment projects were signed in Beijing's Zhongguancun Science City, aiming to shore up its development and foster new growth drivers to achieve self-reliance.

According to the signing ceremony yesterday, these projects focus on the digital economy and high-end technologies such as artificial intelligence, integrated circuit, medicine and healthcare, big data, energy conservation, and environmental protection.

Relying on the resources and policy support provided by Haidian district, where the science city is located, biotech startup Therorna has moved into Zhongguancun and is currently working on the world's first circular RNA vaccines against SARS-CoV-2. The vaccines have a shorter R&D process and are more efficient and safer compared with the existing ones. 

The company's technologies can also be widely applied to the treatment of rare diseases, blood disorders and tumors. Its 3,000-square-meter laboratories and office areas are scheduled to finish construction and put into use before July.

To help its companies tackle core technologies and enhance coordination and independent R&D capacity, Zhongguancun Science City also launched a technology procurement series on Monday, where eight leading companies such as Huawei and China Telecom purchase technological items from 11 small and medium-sized enterprises.

Universities, research institutions, and sci-tech companies in Zhongguancun Science City are also encouraged to join hands and make breakthroughs in core technologies so as to create a favorable environment of collaborative innovation.

In addition, financial institutions in Beijing have introduced targeted fin-tech products to address the financing difficulties and insurance problems facing sci-tech SMEs.
