China unveils major sci-tech issues for 2024




The China Association for Science and Technology (CAST) has unveiled the 2024 list of key focus areas in science, engineering, technology and industrial technology.

At the main forum of CAST's annual conference held on Tuesday in Nanning, the capital of south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, a total of 30 focus areas were highlighted. These include fields such as artificial intelligence, new energy, high-end equipment and life sciences.

Key topics include research on digital humans and emotionally intelligent robots, rapid assessment for the precision preservation of machine tools, and green manufacturing of drugs and functional materials through precise chemistry.

The biological basis of high photosynthetic efficiency in crops, and low-cost, low-carbon steel production using clean energy are also on the list.

This year's solicitation campaign received 597 proposals from 102 sci-tech associations across the country, covering fields such as basic sciences, Earth sciences, ecology and environment, information technology, aerospace technology, and agricultural technology.

Since 2018, CAST has identified and published major sci-tech issues for seven consecutive years.
