Academician Jin Yong: Cultivation of Capability of Technological Innovation.

    Recently, academician Jin Yong from Tsinghua University was invited to Huangdao Forum and gave a lecture on the topic of  the formation of scientific and technological innovation ability. 

  “During the course of college, we should cultivate students' ability to observe, analyze and solve problems, the core of which is innovation ability.”Jin Yong started the report with the introduction of the 70th anniversary of the department of chemical engineering at Tsinghua University to discuss how to do better in the Department of chemical engineering. He stressed that life-long education has become an inevitable requirement in a knowledge explosion era. For university education, knowledge transfer is no longer the most important consideration, and the most important thing is to train the students' ability.

  Jin Yong pointed out that scientific research innovation ability is the main embodiment of international competition in the future. The competition of economic strength, national defense strength, national cohesion and overall national strength will ultimately depend on the level of science and technology, while the level of science and technology depends on the quality of talents, and the quality of talents lies mainly in the ability to innovate.

  First-class technology is not traded in the market, first-class technology can not be bought, first-class technology is not imitation. Jin Yong uses real examples to show that only relying on independent innovation is the only scientific development model, in order to improve their own strength. He used graphene discoveries and the age of the Nobel prize winner as an example to show that innovation does not rely on the expensive equipment and the creativity has nothing to do with age.

  Jin Yong introduced the following cognitive and mode of thinking:Aristotle's deductive method,Bacon's inductive method,Einstein's intuitive method, Dialectics of Hagel,Buddhist and Taoist thinking, etc. Then he points out the comprehensive application of cognition and mode of thinking such as deduction, induction and intuition to achieve originality scientific discovery.

  Jin Yong pointed out that creative people have the following personality qualities: imagination, association, observation, speculation, curiosity and change. He told the story of bionics, field telescopic materials, the invention of tunnel diodes, and the discovery of nuclear fission by Mrs. Curie to the students. He vividly and clearly illustrates the role of these personality traits in inventions and scientific discoveries for teachers and students.

   In the summary of the report, Jin Yong pointed out that the basis for fostering creative ability lies in a comprehensive and profound grasp of the existing knowledge system, so that it can truly be found on the shoulders of giants. Creativity comes from thought, success is from diligence.Living knowledge is conducive to creative thinking, and dead knowledge bound learners' thinking. The objective truth of scientific theory system cannot be determined solely by science itself. Practice is the ultimate criterion for testing scientific theory and objective truth. The core of education is to cultivate ability and stimulate creativity. After the report, Kim Yong interacts with students to encourage young students to take the initiative and contribute to the prosperity of the country.

   Jin Yong, Professor of Tsinghua University, was elected academician of Chinese Academy of Engineering in 1997. He, as the Convener of Academic Committee of Chemistry Committee of the State Council (4th to 6th sessions) and Beijing municipal government professional consultant (3rd to 6th), has long been engaged in the teaching and research work of chemical reaction engineering and fluidization reaction engineering. His more than 400 academic papers have been published at home and abroad, and 37 technical patents have been obtained. He has won 1 National Technical Invention second prize, 1 National Science and Technology Progress second prize, more than 10 ministries scientific and technological progress first or second prize, the National Excellent Doctoral Dissertation advisor award. He was also awarded the title of young and middle-aged experts who have made outstanding contributions to the country, the national outstanding teacher award, the National May Day Labor Medal, and the Beijing teaching master award. In 2006, he received the AIChEPSRI, Lectureship, Award. His deeds were collected by Contemporary Chinese Celebrities.
