It is a big challenge but we have confidence in our own capabilities and strengths as we collaborate with a range of institutions, state bodies, scientific organizations industrial enterprises and businesses. Our interests stretch beyond a single field. We work with a variety of partners, stakeholders in areas such as joint research projects and expertise exchanges.
