China will build 12 major technological infrastructure projects and about 30 national science centers and labs, aiming to enhance its innovative capability, according to a plan released by the State Development and Reform Commission (SDRC) on Sunday.
The 12 major technological infrastructures, such as spallation neutron source (SNS) and large-sized astronomical telescope, cover areas like aviation, bio-tech and life science, the plan shows.
However, SDRC didn't specify in the plan the amount of money China will invest in the projects.
In 2006, China implemented the national guidelines for medium and long-term science and technology development and the 11th Five-year Plan for science and technology.
