Professional talent is the foundation on which SINANO’s vision and strategy is built. During the three-year initial construction period, SINANO adopted a policy of construction, research and hiring at the same time. We also harnessed various programs, both national and provincial, that are designed to attract high-level, innovative talent. President Lu stood at the Talent Exhibition and watched carefully. He was positive about the success of talent-attracting program of SINANO. He also pointed out the recruitment process is a systematic project, and includes attracting not only leading scientists, but also all levels of talents. He thinks it is important to build an integrated system of talent. Attention should be paid to each individual and talent should be attracted by the quality professional environment and opportunities we provide.
