At Fudan’s Think Tank Building, Gong also watched the demonstration of “Urban Consumption Vitality Index”, a recently developed research project based on real-time consumption big data, which is now helping the city to enhance its data-supported policy-making.
Fudan University was an integral part of Shanghai, and over the 115 years of history of Fudan, it had been standing alongside the city and pressing ahead with the city, said Gong.
He hopes that Fudan will continue to cultivate talents of both academic and moral excellence, press ahead with even stronger teaching and research capabilities in leading disciplines, and conduct globally influential research that serves the development priorities of the city and the rest of the country.
