Date:2021-03-09 Visitcount : 58

TheInnovation Workshop was established by the College of Environmental and Resource Sciences of Zhejiang University, with Academician Zhu Lizhong of the Chinese Academy of Engineering serving as the Chief Scientist, to lead the scientific research in the directions relating to soil environment and ecological remediation. Addressing China’s major needs in soil pollution control and remediation, the Workshop will, with the micro-nano manufacturing platform and innovative system mechanism of the ZJU-Hangzhou Global Scientific and Technological Innovation Platform (HIC), focus on the technological innovation in the fields of micro-nano process and detection of the soil environment, environmental micro-nano repair materials as well as environmental information management, to drive breakthroughs in industries such as environmental sensing, soil remediation and big data. The Workshop is committed to building a domestically leading and world-class soil environment research innovation platform, talent cultivation base and think tank, and promoting the in-depth development and integration of industry, university and research.
