From 2017 to 2020, leading talents have awarded with RMB10 million for four consecutive years. To carry forward the innovation culture of "innovation is glorious, innovation is great, and innovation has dignity", and embody the innovative spirit of "innovation in running and innovation at full split", they have been awarded 10 Mercedes Benz cars and 8 BMW cars successively.
The innovation vitality of leading talents has been released by loosening the system. The leading talents are given RMB2,000,000 of discretionary funds each year, to choose their own topics, form their own teams, be their own boss, and completely break the shackles them exert their abilities. Let the "head geese" fly freely on the broad scientific research platform.
GEM has issued an innovative project guide and innovation incentive system valued at 300 million yuan, while fully implementing the partnership mode to put in place the innovation projects. According to the new rules, "research and development will be rewarded" and "transformation of R&D into achievement will be rewarded", while the rewards can account for as much as 20% of the said achievement.
