Global Times – Metro Shanghai - - PULSE -

The mu­nic­i­pal gov­ern­ment held a press con­fer­ence Mon­day to in­tro­duce prepa­ra­tion work for the 2018 Shanghai Sci­ence Fes­ti­val. Zhang Quan, di­rec­tor of Shanghai Sci­ence and Tech­nol­ogy Com­mit­tee, said that their prepa­ra­tions will fo­cus on 10 fields, in­clud­ing sci­en­tific fo­rums, com­pe­ti­tions, ac­tiv­i­ties for teenagers and ac­tiv­i­ties for en­ter­prises.

This year’s Shanghai Sci­ence Fes­ti­val fea­tures three char­ac­ter­is­tics: mul­ti­level, di­verse and cre­ative. Over 1,000 ac­tiv­i­ties re­lat­ing to sci­ence are ex­pected to be held through­out the city.

The 2018 Shanghai Sci­ence Fes­ti­val will be held be­tween May 19 and May 26 at Shanghai Sci­ence & Tech­nol­ogy Mu­seum.

It will be more in­ter­na­tional, more sci­en­tific and closer to be pub­lic com­pared with fes­ti­vals of pre­vi­ous years. The mu­nic­i­pal­ity aims to build Shanghai Sci­ence Fes­ti­val as a brand that goes along with Shanghai’s new im­age as a glob­ally in­flu­en­tial sci­ence and in­no­va­tion cen­ter.

Shanghai Sci­ence Fes­ti­val was estab­lished in 1991, and was China’s first and the world’s sec­ond sci­en­tific fes­ti­val or­ga­nized mainly by the gov­ern­ment.
