Colleges and universities, as the cradle of science and technology, talents and innovation, are obliged to shoulder the heavy responsibility. As the leader among colleges and universities across Shanxi province, Taiyuan University of Technology must keep its mission in mind, shoulder heavy responsibilities, focus on talents and innovation-driven development strategies, continuously deepen the innovation system and mechanism, further strengthen basic research, strive to produce a batch of innovative products, solve technological problems, strengthen applied research, and effectively improve the ability of service transformation. Besides, higher education should strengthen the combination of scientific research, discipline construction, ideological and political work, teaching and other central tasks, and improve the level of morality enhancement and talents cultivation. It is necessary to maximize the creative vitality of talents, promote the in-depth integration of technological innovation and economic development, and continuously inject new vitality into Shanxi's energy revolution and transformation development. He said that the Shanxi Provincial Education Department will give Taiyuan University of Technology greater support in the "1331" project and the "double first-class" construction.

In his speech, Niu Qingshan praised our school for resolutely implementing the major arrangements of the CPC Central Committee and the Shanxi Provincial CPC Committee, adhering to the new development concept, and placing scientific and technological innovation as an important measure to promote the TYUT’s "double first-class" construction and high-quality development. On behalf of the Shanxi Provincial Science and Technology Department, He expressed heartfelt gratitude to the vast number of scientific and technological workers in TYUT, and congratulations to the commended collectives and individuals. He said that the Shanxi Provincial Science and Technology Department will further transform the functions of  government, continue to reduce the burden on scientific researchers, deepen the reform of streamlining the government, delegating power, and improving government services, and actively support and serve the technological innovation of TYUT. It is hoped that Taiyuan University of Technology can follow the strategic requirements of the Shanxi provincial CPC committee for the  basic research,original innovation, and talent training. The improvement of innovation is placed in a more prominent position. The "111" and "1331" projects should be promoted efficiently, and the promotion and upgrade of “double first-class” construction of TYUT ought to be accelerated. The quality of talent training, the level of scientific and technological innovation and the ability to serve the development of Shanxi are continuously improved.

“High-level universities must focus on technological innovation.” Zheng Qiang, secretary of the CPC committee of TYUT, explained in detail the concept, meaning and value of technological innovation in his speech, and interpreted the connotation of innovation from multiple dimensions of history, reality and the future. "Taiyuan University of Technology is located in Taiyuan , Shanxi, but we have to look at the world." Zheng Qiang pointed out that the progress of human society is the result of scientific and technological innovation. Scientific and technological innovation should adhere to the basic forward-looking principle and dare to support "fantastic ideas"; implement the principle of application-oriented and be good at organizing technical research; be brave to accept challenges and failures. Technological innovation is a curious exploration to the unknown world, but also like a brave challenge to the mountains and deep gully; technological innovation should move forward piously, and also should work persistently. "To see whether a university is good or not, we must first look at its scientific research and talent training." Zheng Qiang pointed out that we must update our concepts. Combining with the current status of higher education in China and the actual development of universities in the central and western regions, and through a large number of detailed data and examples, he emphasized that universities should "cultivate talents with profession and expertise". Universities’ reputation should rely on students and disciplines, universities’ development should rely on scholars and academic research. TYUT could achieve progress and win dignity through struggle, reform, and innovation. He asked the whole university should implement the important instructions during General Secretary Xi Jinping’ s inspection tour in Shanxi. The whole school should gather together and form a joint force to innovate and develop, and achieve "three enhancements", that is the quality of education, academic levels and the service capabilities; stimulate the original motivation, liberate productivity, enhance innovation, and form joint forces. The whole school should devote great enthusiasm to the school's scientific and technological innovation, to embark on a road to develop Taiyuan University of Technology, and make contributions to the transformation and development of Shanxi.
