Introduction of QDIAP    
     Situated in Qingdao’s core urban district, next to the site of the World Horticultural Exposition 2014 and poised to engage in synergy with Ocean University of China, Shandong University (Qingdao), and Qingdao National Laboratory of Marine Science and Technology, Qingdao International Academician Park (QIAP) aims to create an advanced platform for technology innovation and commercialization, distinctively characterized by rallying the brainpower of international academicians.
     Operating with a global vision and by international standards and focusing on information technology, biomedicine, design and development engineering, high-end equipment manufacturing, alternative energy and new material, QIAP recruits globally academicians for scientific research and commercialization of state-of-the-art technology. Within 3 years, it hopes to attract 10 world’s top scientists and 100 renowned academicians from home and abroad to build a world-class and unique powerhouse for creation, innovation, entrepreneurship and funding for academicians.
Founding principles
      Four founding principles are to be upheld. First, principle of recruiting internationally. Emphasizing a global vision, QIAP sets its focus on recruiting, on a contract basis, academicians with international reputation. Second, principle of cutting edge. QIAP focuses its attention on bringing in academicians who are at the forefront of research and development that cut across advanced technologies and industry sectors, especially those that are masters in their fields and internationally revered. Third, principle of competence. Academicians should be in their prime and able to work vigorously. Four, principle of marketability. All research projects should offer prospect of wide marketability and commercialization. Based on the formula of ‘one academician bringing about one research team, centering on one specialized field and launching one series of projects’, QIAP aims to develop supporting industries or industry cluster with an annual turnover worth of billions or even tens of billions of US dollars.

Innovation of mechanism
      Goal-oriented and problem-oriented and relying on new and innovative system and mechanism, we aim to promote the integration of the strengths of academies of sciences and academies of engineering, the communication between system and mechanism for scientific research in the West and China, the coordinated development of and seamless transition between R & D and commercialization, so as to set in motion the flow of institutions, human resource, facilities, capital and projects, to initiate a new phase of system innovation, integrated innovation and coordinated innovation.
      Looking ahead, QIAP will uphold its motto of ‘facing up to problems, conquering difficulties, being creative, keeping ahead and  remaining top-notch and march firmly forward, doing all it can to realize its dream by building a base camp for academicians to scale new heights in science and technology as well as an ecosystem for creation and innovation that boasts both great originality and considerable scales of industry.
