Huai Jinpeng, executive vice president of the China Association for Science and Technology (CAST), met with a delegation of Holtzbrinck Publishing Group headed by its CEO Dr. Stefan von Holtzbrinck in Beijing on March 4, 2019.
The two sides mainly discussed academic exchanges, youth science education and promotion of scientist spirit at the meeting.
Huai extended warm welcome to the delegation.
He appreciated the current close cooperation of the STM journals of CAST and its member national societies with Holtzbrinck Publishing Group and its science journal Nature, and hoped that with this meeting the two sides can explore cooperation in new areas while taking the current cooperation in STM journal, paper review and academic ecology to a deeper level, so as to boost exchanges between China and the West in science and technology culture and help China’s scientific and technological development better contribute to the world.
Stressing youth science education is about the future of scientific and technological innovation, Huai invited Holtzbrinck Publishing Group to attend the 34th China Adolescents Science and Technology Innovation Contest to be held in Macao this July, hoping the two sides can take the event as an opportunity to jointly conduct research on youth growth and innovation patterns and achieve cooperation in the area.
Huai also expressed the hope that CAST and Holtzbrinck Publishing Group can co-organize a scientists-themed photography contest to discover and display the beauty of science and science workers.
In addition, Huai invited the publishing group to attend the Second Forum for World STM Journals scheduled for June this year in Harbin, northeast China’s Heilongjiang Province.
As a traditional international publisher, Holtzbrinck Publishing Group hopes to bring more of China’s excellent scientific and technological achievements to the world stage and strengthen cooperation with CAST in areas like the going-global of China’s STM journals and the improvement of China’s peer review systems through intensifying exchanges and sharing international scientific publishing experiences with each other, Dr. Holtzbrinck said.
Arnout Jacobs, president of Springer Nature for Greater China, and officials from CAST’s departments of research and publicity, academic and societies affairs, and international affairs and its China Science and Technology Press were also present at the meeting.
