Wu Kongming, President of the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences, Zhang Hecheng, Party Group Secretary of the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences, Pang Xiaodong, Deputy Director of the Science Popularization Department of the Chinese Association for Science and technology, and Sun Fajun, deputy director of the Department of Science and Education of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs, attended the ceremony. The event invited media such as CCTV Agriculture and Rural Channel, Guangming.com, China Youth Daily, Weibo, WeChat, Bilibili, Douyin and other media to conduct live interaction, and the two districts of “AI Vertical Farm on the Cloud” and Center for Horticultural Innovation have been linked. More than 5 million people learned about the new National Agricultural Science and Technology Innovation Park through the live broadcast.
Ten years of innovation park, which grows with the modernization of agriculture
Since the establishment of the National Agricultural Science and Technology Innovation Park in 2009, it has focused on promoting the integrated development of agricultural science and technology innovation, achievement transformation and model production. Through the innovative operation of AgriGarden Company, remarkable achievements have been made in the research and development of market-oriented technologies and the transformation of achievements, and it has gradually become an important window for the research platform. and development of protected agricultural technology innovation in China, the achievement transformation incubation platform, and international exchanges and cooperation. More than 40 heads of state and foreign dignitaries have paid visits here, and it has gradually become a world-famous Chinese agricultural calling card. The innovation park unveiled at this live-streamed event is a national agricultural science and technology innovation park that has been renovated and upgraded for three years.
The recently completed National Agricultural Science and Technology Innovation Park targets key needs and advanced core technologies for the development of the horticulture industry. Based on scientific research and innovation platforms, the park has built three functional spaces: a vertical farm, a collaborative innovation laboratory and a horticultural innovation center.
AIFarm Vertical Farm
The AIFarm vertical farm is the world’s first innovative integration of a new production support that combines a smart greenhouse roof, wall system and steel building structure. It is the first true vertical farm in China. A 19-story unmanned smart plant factory, Vertical AIFarm, was built in the Vertical Farm to give full play to the function of an urban farm, and carry out research and demonstration on urban vegetable emergency supply and reducing urban food carbon. footprint.
Top 10 Collaborative Innovation Labs
Adhering to the concept of “open sharing, integrated innovation”, the innovation park has built 10 collaborative innovation labs, including leafy greens, fruiting vegetables, raspberries, strawberries, digital horticulture and manufacture of intelligent equipment. The park combines high-quality scientific research resources, high-tech enterprises to achieve cross-border cooperation, and collaborative innovation to promote China’s protected agriculture to achieve rapid and healthy development.
Horticultural Innovation Center
The Horticultural Innovation Center is an industrial innovation component of the National Agricultural Science and Technology Innovation Park, with a total area of more than 10,000 square meters. It has defined five functional areas: flower industrialization stage demonstration area, agricultural science and technology achievement exhibition area, AI flower factory planting laboratory, Agricultural S&T Achievement Exchange and S&T Entrepreneurship Incubation Zone. It aims to gather industrial ecology through the collection of resource elements such as talents, technology, capital and services, to serve the transfer and transformation of scientific and technological achievements, to facilitate transactions and to promote the high-quality development of the agricultural industry.
The Agricultural S&T Achievement Exhibition Area has 2,650 square meters of exhibition space with more than 120 booths for international and domestic high-quality agricultural science and technology enterprises and groups. It has large and small conference spaces and various exhibition spaces, which can undertake exhibitions of more than 500 people, agricultural science and technology cities. A variety of exhibition business activities such as gatherings, large-scale conferences, conference fairs and others. At present, it has gathered the latest scientific and technological innovation achievements of 35 research institutes of Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences, as well as many high-tech enterprises such as Priva, Viscon, Ammerlaan and Rider. The flower industrialization scene demonstration area has created six thematic urban gardens and 10 characteristic communication spaces, which can meet various communication needs such as conference lounges and business meetings.
The innovative ecological platform is conducive to exchanges and cooperation
The national agricultural science and technology innovation park is expected to be fully launched in September. As an open innovation ecological platform, AgriGarden will rely on the park’s comprehensive protected agricultural form, national laboratories and other science and technology innovation platforms to bring together scientific research institutes and universities domestic and foreign, high-tech enterprises, industrial alliance associations, financial capital, local governments and other supply and demand players, build a new industrial ecology and promote the collaborative innovation of scientific research and industry. Welcome to exchange and cooperation.
