24 Mandatory Measures to Improve Sci-Tech Evaluation System
updated on:2020-05-22 08:35

Jiangsu Department of Science and Technology and Jiangsu Department of Finance jointly released a policy paper the other day comprising 24 measures in 8 categories which will be taken for a trial run with the purpose to improve the sci-tech evaluation system in Jiangsu by decoupling the theses-oriented mindset. As instructed, high-quality research results, instead of theses, will become the underlying indicator in assessing and evaluating various sci-tech activities or researches by category. Assessment on theses will be pivoted on magnum opus of the researchers.

The policy paper stresses that laws of sci-tech research must be respected. Sci-tech evaluation by category will be put in place to target at different types of researches. In the future, sci-tech evaluation will give more weight on enhanced innovation capability and quality of signature research results.

In the process of evaluating basic researches, results that can enable major breakthroughs in prospective technologies or industrial bottlenecks will determine the evaluation conclusion. Number of theses as one of the criterion in evaluation will be replaced by a proper amount of magnum opus, for instance, at least 1/3 of the theses by the researchers should be published on Chinese sci-tech journals or periodicals, in principle.  

In the process of evaluating application researches and technological developments, major signature results should represent the industrial prospective technologies and key breakthroughs in core technologies, as well as innovative or demonstrative application of technologies in the agricultural and social sectors. Theses will no longer be considered a major indicator in evaluation.

In the process of evaluating commercialization of research results, the focus is placed on whether major research results could bring about significant industrial development. Theses will not be regarded a key indicator in evaluation.

The policy paper also proposes that the professionals engaged in the provincial sci-tech programs will be assessed on their scientific intellectual life, academic ethics, capability, performance, activeness and influence in the respective research area, indigenousness, efficacy of commercialization of research results, as well as industrial and social efficiency driven by their sci-tech activities.
