The ground breaking ceremony marks a new impetus for the development of the laboratory. It will improve the infrastructure of the lab, which is necessary for building towards a world leading laboratory.
Since its establishment last year, PCL has set up five research centers and eleven academician labs, bringing together eighteen academicians and almost 1,000 research staff. It has launched several major scientific research projects and housed three large scale scientific facilities. PCL’s rapid development embodies the so-called "Shenzhen speed" in technological innovation. It will continue to target the frontier of international science and technology, and closely follow the development direction of the Greater Bay Area. With the forward-looking basic research as its research focus, PCL will continuously enhance its original innovation capability.
