Multiple science, technology projects in 5-year plan
From artificial intelligence to smog control, the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) unveiled 60 major science and technology breakthroughs the country aspires to make in the next five years.
Key projects include organ repair and reconstruction, water pollution control, research on moon samples, a low-frequency radio telescope on the far side of the moon and the development of a ground application system for China’s Mars mission.
Last month, China released images of a Mars probe and rover which the country plans to send to the red planet within five years.
CAS set a goal to double the country’s 2015 intellectual property rights earnings by 2020, and help companies to create 150,000 jobs and additional revenue worth more than $717 billion with the application of new technology.
