On September 6, 2017, to implement fully the spirit of the National Earthquake Science and Technology Innovation Conference in promoting innovation in earthquake science and technology, cultivating talent in the fields of earthquake science and technology, and improving the contribution rate of earthquake science and technology achievements, the Institute of Geology of the China Earthquake Administration and the Heilongjiang Earthquake Agency in Harbin signed a scientific and technological cooperation agreement. Director Ma Shengli and director Zhang Zhibo signed the agreement respectively. Adopting the principles of complementary advantage, resource sharing, and pragmatic and collaborative development to achieve a “win–win” scenario, both parties reached consensus on cooperation in scientific research projects, training of talent, and transformation of scientific and technological achievements.
Following discussion of the objectives of the agreement, Director Ma Shengli of the Institute of Geology of the China Earthquake Administration and director Zhang Zhibo of the Heilongjiang Earthquake Agency signed the agreement. The signing ceremony was witnessed by the deputy director of the Heilongjiang Earthquake Agency Zhao Zhi, deputy director of the office Yu Lu, division chief of the Development and Finance Department Wang Xiaofeng, division chief of the Personnel Education Department Wang Ruolan, director of the Monitoring Center Gao Donghui, vice-president of the Institute of Engineering Chang Zheng, director of the Monitoring and Prediction Department Qi Xiaoyan, Dr. Zhao Bin of the Institute of Engineering, engineer Liu Shuang, research fellow and division chief of the Technic Developing Department Jiang Hanchao, and research fellows Xu Jiandong and Zhan Yan.
Director Zhang Zhibo introduced the earthquake tectonic features of “four vertical and one horizontal” in Heilongjiang Province and the basic situation of the “Five Lotus Ponds” volcano and the “Jingbo Lake” volcano. He stated that Heilongjiang Province is a large volcanic province, which has experienced the most recent volcanic eruption in China, making it a good place for volcanic research. Science and technology innovation and talent are important in supporting research into earthquake prevention and disaster reduction. The Institute of Geology has strong scientific research strength and rich history of scientific research achievements. Through the agreement, both parties have established a new model of operational cooperation that will help overcome scientific and technological problems associated with the work of earthquake disaster prevention and mitigation in Heilongjiang Province. Furthermore, the promotion of talent in the fields of earthquake science and technology will help achieve the declared “win–win” ambition.
Director Ma Shengli introduced the current direction of scientific research and the situation regarding the development of science and technology and the cultivation of talent in recent years. He stressed that the rich earthquake and volcanic resources in Heilongjiang Province make it an ideal place for scientific experiments addressing volcanic activity and structure. He expressed his hopes that through the signing of the agreement, the development, implementation, and collaborative interaction on a series of projects would promote scientific research achievements through the cultivation of young scientific and technological talent in application to earthquake prevention and disaster reduction.
