Stick to the mission, strengthen the functions, and build a highland for service development

 

Serving economic and social development is the eternal theme and mission of universities. The university has implemented the fundamental mission of fostering morality and cultivating talents, planned the future layout scientifically, taken the initiative in building a "great integration" between the economy and society, explored new advantages of service development, and promoted the deep integration and resonance between the university and Hunan's "Three Highlands and Four New Missions" strategy.

 

Firstly, clarify the role of the university. Only with clear coordinates can we better shoulder the mission. We have closely met the major strategic needs of the country and Hunan, closely set the development plan of the 14th Five-Year Plan, and further clarified the university's role of "serving the country while based in Hunan.” The Party congress of HUTB has set the goal of building an innovative first-class university of technology and business with distinctive characteristics, and made great efforts to develop itself into a highland for cultivating technological, business and financial talents, a highland for supporting the development of new technologies, new industries, new business forms and new patterns, and a highland for serving regional and national economic and social development. The faculty and students have shown an unprecedentedly spiritual cohesiveness.

 

Secondly, strengthen the guidance of Party building. The thriving of our course depends on strong Party building. We have strengthened the Party's overall leadership over our work. Taking the opportunity of the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China, we have educated our students on the great spirit of the founding of the Party, promoted the red spirit and outstanding culture of Hunan on campus, highlighted the ideological and political education with Hunan characteristics, and fundamentally pushed forward high-quality development. Adhering to the principle that the Party is in charge of talents, HUTB has introduced a batch of first-class talents in science and technology, including 15 academicians, and more than 130 high-level talents mainly in "new engineering," to create a talent pool and service development highland. More than ten " Lectures for Cadres " were held to fully unify the thoughts of teachers, Party members and officials, in an aim to cultivate first-class talents and make first-class contributions to economic and social development.

 

Thirdly, set the layout by focusing on the demand. Interdisciplinary integration can better serve the strategic needs. As an application-oriented undergraduate university under the "13th Five-Year Plan" national project for development of industry-education integration, HUTB targets the needs of frontier technologies and social reality, applies the philosophy of in-depth integration of science and "new engineering courses + new business courses + new liberal arts courses," and is building a new landscape that features small-scale crossovers between disciplines and schools and large-scale crossovers between universities. HUTB has established a batch of new schools, including the Academy for Advanced Interdisciplinary Studies, the School of Intelligent Engineering and Manufacturing, the School of Resources and Environment, the School of Physics and Electronics, and the School of Digital Media and Information Engineering. Meanwhile, all the existing schools have been reorganized and optimized. The university has also pushed forward the integration of traditional disciplines and modern information technologies such as artificial intelligence, big data, cloud computing, blockchain and digital twins. It has prioritized the development of cutting-edge, emerging and interdisciplinary subjects to meet the strategic needs of services like industrial Internet engineering, robot engineering, big data management and application, and energy intelligence management. These subjects fulfill the social needs at an unprecedented level.

 

Fourthly, cultivate outstanding talents. It is our original aspiration to cultivate elites for the Party, the country and Hunan. We have jointed hands with Tencent and other leading enterprises to build a modern industrial college. We have also opened a number of academician advanced classes and set up the curriculum in line with frontier education, in order to vigorously cultivate talents in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, and promote the supply-side structural reform of talents cultivation. The university continues to give full play to its brand effect as one of the first batch of top 100 "Demonstration Universities for Deepening Educational Reform of Innovation and Entrepreneurship," the National Innovation and Entrepreneurship Base for Practical Education in Colleges and Universities, and the national top 50 universities with typical experience in innovation and entrepreneurship, and focus on cultivating innovative, entrepreneurial, application-oriented and compound first-class talents. The employment rate of HUTB graduates ranks among the top of colleges and universities in the Hunan, and more than 60% of them found work in the province. With the graduates showing high comprehensive quality, close connection with the industry and outstanding adaptability, HUTB is now known as the "the base of Hunan economic elites and the cradle of professional entrepreneurs."

Keep up with the frontiers, strengthen the connection, and strive to be a pioneer in a province with leading technologies

 

The effective implementation of the "Three Highlands and Four New Missions" has sounded the "assembly call" for scientific and technological leap by colleges and universities in Hunan. HUTB pays close attention to the key links and major fields of economic and social development, and makes unprecedented efforts to take the initiative of making connections, lead scientific and technological innovation, and serve as a think tank for service development.

 

Firstly, do a good job in major scientific research projects. HUTB has paid unprecedented attention to strengthening services and making contributions through projects. In recent years, we have faced major practical problems and needs directly, and continually made historic breakthroughs in major projects of the National Natural Science Foundation, national R&D key projects and major consulting projects of Chinese Academy of Engineering. The number of projects approved by the National Social Science Fund of China ranks in the top 100 in China. In the past year, the number of scientific research projects serving regional economic and social development has increased by over 240%. The funds that horizontal subjects received have nearly tripled that of last year. Focusing on rallying a strong scientific research team, HUTB has joined hands with well-known universities and enterprises within and outside the province to tackle problems, strengthened basic research and applied research, put great efforts into improving original innovation capability and integrated ability to solve problems, and produced a number of innovative achievements with independent intellectual property rights and broad application prospects. Compared with that of previous years, the conversion rate of the achievements has multiplied.

 

Secondly, build a big platform for tackling key problems. Work hard to build a strong platform and promote better services. Relying on the first nationalcentre for basic sciences in central China, which is named " Theory and Application of Resource and Environment Management in the Era of Digital Economy" and created by HUTB Party Secretary and Academician Chen Xiaohong, the university gives full play to the role of a number of platforms, including "Big Data Technology and Management," which is a provincial base for international science and technology innovation and cooperation, "New Retail Virtual Reality Technology" and other three provincial key laboratories, "Mobile E-commerce" and another provincial 2011 collaborative innovation center, and "Ecological Environment Big Data and Intelligent Decision-Making Techniques," which is a provincial engineering research center. Standing on the frontiers, the university has set up a large number of modernized laboratories in various fields, including intelligent manufacturing, intelligent robotics, industrial Internet and intelligent logistics. According to the demand, it has also set up the Hunan "Three Highlands and Four New Missions" Strategy Institute, the Institute for Carbon Neutrality and the Research Centre for Rural Revitalization, which have significantly enhanced HUTB's ability to serve economic and social development.

HUTB also abides by the rule of law and the cultural construction requirements of Hunan, and provides strong support for Hunan's economic and social development. The university has proposed technologies including multi-source data fusion and feature extraction and secured big data sharing based on blockchain. We've developed a supporting platform for data processing and management, which has gained independent intellectual property rights. The platform has solved problems like data extraction, integration, management, storage and secured sharing through a scientific approach, and provided effective support for intelligent decision-making in all fields. Focusing on the realization of carbon peak and carbon neutralization, HUTB has carried out in-depth research on green and low-carbon circular development and energy resource security. It has effectively promoted the Xiangjiang River Basin's role as a national paragon for heavy metal pollution control. HUTB has played an important role in comprehensively improving the water environment of Dongting Lake. It continues to help large non-ferrous enterprises with the efficient and green development of resources. The application of the achievements has improved the judicial intelligence judgment efficiency of environmental protection cases by more than 60%.

 

Fifthly, build a large governance consulting think tank. By actively submitting suggestions and proposals, the think tank has provided more than 50 analysis reports and decision-making suggestions for the CPC Central Committee, the State Council, the Ministry of Science and Technology and the CPC Hunan Provincial Committee. The think tank covers a wide range of areas including epidemic prevention and control, energy resource security, industrial chain and supply chain management, ecological civilization and green development, digital economy, smart society and the fight against corruption. Some of the suggestions received instructions from Party and state leaders and became part of the national decision-making. The key proposal on the Two Sessions was adopted by the country, which promoted Changsha to be approved as a national pilot zone for innovation and development of next-generation artificial intelligence. The proposal, titled "Suggestions on Hunan Taking the Lead in Designing and Applying the Evaluation Index System of 'Loyal and Clean Responsibility'" won the third Huxiang Think Tank "Ten Golden Proposals."
