The Spring Breeze of Science

Science and technology are important achievements of human civilization. The interaction between science and technology has become an inexhaustible motive force for promoting the development of human society to a higher civilization.


After 40 years of rapid development, China is now in the midst of profound and complex changes. President Xi Jinping proposed a grand goal in the next 15 years plan which is, by the year of 2035, China’s economic and technological strength has increased significantly; China has become a global leader in innovation. Science and technological innovation has become a crucial national strategy. To create a great modern socialist country that is prosperous, strong and culturally advanced, China is badly in need of the spring breeze of both reforming and science.


With the mission of promoting science and inspire scientific spirits in China, Future Forum will invite world renowned scientists, entrepreneurs and young startup leaderships to join us at the Cities Summit in Shenzhen. The event will address issues on AI, CRISPR-Cas9, Quantum Communication and Neuroscience to share and understand the cutting-edge technological achievements, tap into the future and promote the healthy development of Production-Education-Research cooperation.


We hope the conference will inspire young people, raise the enthusiasm for science, and encourage participations in scientific research activities. Let the spring breeze of science influence the future of China, the world, and the humanity!
