Unit 11 The Scientific achievementZHONGGUANCUN 中关村
Whatever great achievements the future may have in store for China, it is likely that many of them will be born in northwestern Beijing. Zhongguancun, in Beijing’s Haidian District, is the new centre for Chinese science and technology. It is home to the Chinese Academy of Sciences and more than ten famous universities, including Peking University and Tsinghua University.
Zhongguancun was set up as a special economic zone in the late 1990s and quickly became the leader of China’s hi-tech industry. The center itself got started in the early 1980s, when Chen Chunxian, a researcher at the Chinese Academy of Sciences, opened a private research and development institute. Within the next ten years, more than a hundred scientific and hi?tech companies moved into the area and new hi?tech centers developed around the original Zhongguancun Garden. They all have their own characteristics, but they all share the spirit of creativity and scientific skill that has made Zhongguancun a success.
The science park is also home to a growing number of overseas Chinese who have grasped the opportunity to develop their ideas at home. Xiang Yufang is one of those who have returned to China after studying and working abroad. Zhongguancun made it possible for him to follow his dreams and help the country he loves.
“I studied abroad because I wanted to see more of the world and work with some of the top
scientists in my field. I never felt really comfortable abroad, and I missed everything about China.
When I got my master?s degree, I wanted to return home but I could not find a company where
I could use what I had learnt. I worked abroad for a few years and then I heard about Zhongguancun. I knew it was perfect for me.”
Yufang talked to some friends from his university in Beijing and they helped arrange for his return. He left his job in the foreign company and came back to Beijing.
“I was so happy. It was wonderful, like a dream come true. I could do the work I wanted to do and do something good for my country at the same time. I will never forget how happy I was when I set foot in China again and was back with my friends and family.”
Yufang has been in China for three years now and is doing well. He lives in Beijing and runs a small company based in Zhongguancun together with two friends.
Zhongguancun has had a positive effect on business as well as science. Today, there are more than 8,000 hi?tech companies in Zhongguancun. More than half of them are IT companies. The park is home to Chinese computer giants Lenovo and Founder and more than twenty famous international companies. One of the mottos for the park?“Relying on science, technology, and knowledge to increase economic power”?makes it clear that science and business can and must work together to build the future. Another motto helps explain the success of the park:“Encouraging pioneering work and accepting failure.” Great scientific achievements are the results of years of failure, years of trying to create something that has never existed before.
The researchers and scientists at Zhongguancun know that they can only reach the top if they are ready to deal with and learn from failure. Not all the new companies can succeed, but the spirit and creativity they represent are more important than money. As Yufang puts it:“We are not making that much money yet, but we are excited about all the new technology and great ideas that are coming to life in Zhongguancun.
无论中国将来会有什么样的伟大成就,其中许多很有可能就诞生在北京的西北部。坐落在北京海淀区的中关村是中国新兴的科学技术中心。它是中国科学院和北京大学、清华大学等10多所著名大学的所在地。
中关村在20世纪90年代末成为经济特区,并很快成为中国高科技产业的先锋。这个中心早在80年代初期就开始创建,当时,陈春先??一位中科院的研究员开办了一所私人研究发展机构。
在接下来的十年里,一百多所高科技公司搬迁到此处,新兴的高科技中心由此在最初的中关村园区周围形成。他们虽然各具特色,但是他们共有的创新精神和科学能力使中关村的发展获得了成功。
日益增多的海外人士都抓住机会在国内实现他们的梦想,这个高科技园区也就成了的这些海归派的家园。向玉方就是其中一员,他在国外学习和工作了一段时间之后回国了。中关村使他可以追寻他的梦想、报效他深爱的祖国。
“我之所以出国学习是因为我想更多地了解世界,想跟我所在研究领域里的顶级科学家一起工作。在国外,我从未感到真正的舒坦,我思念中国的一切。当我获得博士学位时我就想回国,但是找不到一家可以学以致用的公司。
我在国外工作了几年后就听说了中关村。我想它非常适合我。”
玉方和在北京的大学朋友交谈,他们帮助安排他的回归。他辞去了在国外公司的工作回到了北京。
“我非常高兴。感觉非常美妙,就像梦想成真那样美好。我可以做我喜欢做的事情,同时也为我的国家做点有益的事。我永远忘不了当我再次踏上中国的土地和我的朋友、亲人团聚时,那种感觉有多幸福!
如今,玉方已回国三年,一切都进行得很顺利。他住在北京, 和他的两个朋友在中关村开了一家小公司。
中关村无论对商业还是科学都产生了积极的影响。
如今,中关村已有8000多家高科技公司,其中一半以上是IT公司。科技园是中国计算机产业巨头“联想”公司和“方正”公司以及20多家国际著名公司所在地。科技园的口号之一是??“依靠科学技术知识发展经济,”??它表明了科学技术和商业能够且必须结合在一起共创未来。
还有一个口号有助于解释科技园区的成功:“鼓励创新,接受失败”。伟大的科学成就往往是多次失败,多次尝试创新的结果。
中关村的研究人员和科学家们知道,他们只有愿意接受失败并从失败中总结经验才有可能到达科学的顶峰。并非所有的公司都能成功,但是他们表现出来的精神和创造力比金钱更加重要。正像玉方所说的:“我们目前还没有挣到那么多的钱,但是我们为所有这些在中关村富有活力的新技术和卓越的想法感到激动。
