Recently, the Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) published “Letter of Department of International Cooperation, MOST Regarding to Identifying 39 Organizations Including International S&T Cooperation Base for Energy-Saving Environment-Friendly High-Power Engines as Demonstrative National Bases for International S&T Cooperation in 2015” (Guo-Ke-Wai-Han [2015] No.275). State Key Laboratory of Earthquake Dynamics, Institute of Geology became one of them and was identified as “International S&T Cooperation Base for Earthquake Dynamics” (hereinafter referred to as “International Cooperation Base”) .

The development of International Cooperation Base is mainly for deepening the implementation of an innovation-driven plan, put into practice the deployment set forth in the “12thFive-Year” Plan for International Science and Technology Cooperation, further optimize the layout of international S&T cooperation, enlarge S&T opening and cooperation and make full use of global resources for technology innovation and aims to more effectively play the role of international S&T cooperation in promoting and driving the enlargement of S&T opening and cooperation and raise the quality and level of international S&T cooperation of China. International Cooperation Base is an important means for strengthening international S&T cooperation conditions and capacity building, and an important carrier of international S&T competition and cooperation.

State Key Laboratory of Earthquake Dynamics, Institute of Geology is the only state-level key laboratory in the earthquake industry. Since 2003, the Laboratory has carried out basic research in the field of seismic science and basic research for application by centering on seismic mechanism and prediction – this frontier issue of science, and the social demand for earthquake prevention and disaster mitigation. Through the research of the relation between tectonic deformation and seismic activity, the Laboratory revealed the mechanism and dynamic process of continental strong earthquake, developed the theories and methods for physical prediction of earthquake and gradually established a scientific research, talent cultivation and academic exchange base influential in the research field of earthquake dynamics. The Institute of Geology and State Key Laboratory of Earthquake Dynamics will take this as an opportunity, intensively develop an international S&T cooperation model integrating “project – talent – base”, actively push ahead international technology innovation and the building of a talent system, explore new fields and new ways of earthquake dynamics research of China, enlarge international influence of technology innovation of Chinese earthquake industry, and build a demonstration platform for introduction, cultivation and aggregation of international talents.
