The reporter learned from the meeting that the Implementation Plan for the Leading Plan for Innovative Enterprises in Binhai New Area was introduced recently. The plan will be implemented through the scientific and technological enterprises, the strategic actions of innovative industries, the establishment of major innovation platforms, and the innovation and ecology. We will improve the "five major challenges" of tackling the key to the actions of the scientific and technological system, accelerate the cultivation and expansion of the scientific and technological enterprise groups, overcome a number of core key technologies, build a number of innovative platform carriers, and form an innovation ecosystem that is conducive to the rapid growth of science and technology enterprises and build a world-class industry innovation center.
Clear development goals
According to the development goals determined by the program, by 2023, there will be more than 5,500 national high-tech enterprises in Binhai New Area, 3,500 national science and technology-oriented small and medium-sized enterprises, 2,000 “Eagle” enterprises, and 200 “Gazelle” enterprises. The number of leading companies in science and technology and leading enterprises has reached 100, and 10 “unicorn” enterprises have been introduced and cultivated.
In the field of strategic emerging industries such as artificial intelligence, biomedicine, new energy and new materials, aerospace and other strategic emerging industries, we will solve a number of technology difficulties and overcome a number of key technologies that restrict industrial development; by 2023, we will accumulate key new products. There are 450 items and 300 “killer” products. The added value of strategic emerging industries accounts for about 50%, and the value added of high-tech (manufacturing) accounts for about 30%.
Implementing a campaign for technology enterprises to guide and overcome difficulties
TBNA will focus on science and technology enterprises to take the initiative to create an "Eagle - Gazelle - Leading" technology enterprise echelon. It will actively promote the cultivation of three types of enterprises, and strive for the 50,000-yuan financial reward for the "Eagle" enterprises that have obtained bank loans of more than 500,000 yuan.
