Dr. Zhao Changlu extended a warm welcome to young scholars from home and abroad. He noted that nurturing future talents has always been a top priority for Beihang University. In the past 70 years, aiming at fostering virtue through education and serving the country’s major needs, generations of Beihang faculty and students have devoted themselves to education and science and technology innovation, supporting the university’s development in various aspects. Beihang will celebrate its 70th anniversary this year by launching new projects and making new achievements. On a recent education conference, Beihang has put forward the Blue Sky Cultivation Action Plan in the New Era, a strategy that includes a series of concrete measures to guide our high-quality talent actions. He emphasized that Beihang is craving for talent in the times of unprecedented opportunities and challenges. He hoped that the Vision Forum would serve as a platform for young scholars to focus on academic frontiers, exchange ideas and show their talents. Hopefully, more and more young scholars can take this forum as an opportunity to get to know and even join in Beihang, to achieve their careers goals and dreams.
Prof. Wang Zili, member of Chinese Academy of Engineering, announced the winner of the best conference journals of the 11th Vision Forum. He hoped that the winners will continue to serve the major needs of the country and devote themselves to teaching and scientific research, making more contributions not only in their respective fields, but also in the fields of aeronautics and astronautics if we can work together at Beihang.
