Through the construction of these bases, the institute will bring scientific research achievements, innovative ideas, and outstanding talent resources to Ya'an, creating a mutually beneficial and win-win situation in conjunction with Ya'an's resource and professional advantages.
During the research visit, Yin Zhan and his team engaged in extensive discussions with aquaculture enterprises on key technical issues such as cold water fish seedling cultivation and fish disease prevention and control.
IHB has already signed a framework cooperation agreement with the Ya'an Municipal Government. This research visit aims to promote effective practice in government-school-enterprise cooperation, acting as a "bridge link" between the institute and local enterprises in talent cultivation and achievement transformation. It will further drive the strategic cooperation between the institute and the municipal government in sharing talent resources.
