The 2019 International Innovation Forum and the Second Plenary Session of the First Council Held by the Space Science Collaborative Innovation Center
The Space Science Collaborative Innovation Center (hereinafter referred to as the “Center”), which was jointly established under the guidance of the State Administration of Science, Technology and Industry for National Defense, the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Science and Technology and the China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation, together with the lead of the Shanghai Academy of Spaceflight Technology (hereinafter referred to as the “SAST”), recently held the “2019 International Innovation Forum and the Second Plenary Session of the First Council by the Space Science Collaborative Innovation Center“ in Shanghai. The industry experts met together to discuss about the innovation and developments in the field. The council of the Center presented a phase-by-phase summary report and identified the innovation fund projects that were planned to be supported in 2019.
Since the establishment of the Center on May 5, 2018 and the first plenary session of the council on October 14, 2018, the Center has achieved innovative results in project declaration and operational management. Recently, the Center has newly recruited several universities such as the University of Hong Kong, the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and the Macau University of Science and Technology. The number of council members has increased from 18 to 24. It has formed a good momentum for the collaborative development of space science and technology among the mainland, Hong Kong and Macau, and realized the ratification of a dual-super platform technology experiment satellite for solar exploration project, promoted the ratification of the further development of the hot universe baryon surveyor (HUBS) project, and encouraged the cultivation of projects including the thorough exploration of solar system and the observation of high-energy rays in space.
Based on the state’s approval of the dual-super platform technology experiment satellite for solar exploration project, the Nanjing University and SAST continued deepening the corporation and worked actively on follow-up space probe tasks in the field of solar physics. A step-by-step systematic exploration was proposed on the basis of academic consensus and innovative discussions, so as to obtain the detailed observation data of the solar magnetic field, solar flares and corona mass ejections, and encourage the breakthrough of technologies such as the high-precision thermal control technology in extreme conditions.
Apart from continuous development of the HUBS project, the Center also collaborated with universities of advantages to work on the innovative projects in the field of space astronomy. The observation project of high-energy rays in space jointly demonstrated with the team of the University of Hong Kong was a typical example. The project focused on direct identification of the source of cosmic rays in galactic system and the source of diffuse rays, deducing the intrinsic properties of different sources of rays, and leading to significant progress in technologies of advanced autonomous management and operation as well.
Currently, the Center is focusing on the research of cutting-edge scientific issues, demonstration of innovative missions and breakthrough of advanced technologies in the field of solar physics and space astronomy, and gradually strengthening the research and discussion in the aspects of planetary science and comparative planetology. The center will consistently promoted the monographic study in space science and the demonstration of collaborative innovation projects under the lead of scientists and endeavor to contribute to the development of space science and technology in China.
At the meeting, leaders and experts from the China Space Foundation, Shanghai Economic and Information Technology Committee, and the council member of the Center were briefed on the plenary report of the “Current Situation and Prospects of the Space Science Collaborative Innovation Center” by SAST, the keynote reports of the “Current Situation and Prospects of the Solar Space Exploration in China” by the Nanjing University, “Observation Platform of High-Energy Rays in Space” by the University of Hong Kong, “Several Important Unsolved Science Issues of the Jupiter” by the Macau University of Science and Technology, and varieties of special reports. They also put forward some valuable comments and suggestions on the demonstration and approval of innovation projects and the development of central platform. The meeting held preliminary discussion about the planning and preparation of the next seminar as well.
