The innovation team awards are the province’s way of fostering top talent and encouraging ongoing scientific innovation. The awards provide incentive for young scientists to work hard, and promote innovation in science that benefits industry and improves Yunnan’s economic competitiveness. Fostering home-grown innovation has been a key goal of the Yunnan government over the past five years, as the province has become a leading center for China’s ongoing economic development, outpacing Eastern and Southern China in year to year GDP growth.
