The Ministry of Science and Technology has approved the establishment of 96 enterprise-based state key laboratories since the first batch of the laboratories was established in 2007.

In the past five years, these laboratories have organized and accomplished more than 1,500 key programs, such as National Basic Research Program, known as the 973 Program, as well as the National High-tech R&D Program, known as the 863 Program.

The labs have published more than 11,000 research papers on SCI and EI, applied for more than 6,800 patents and were awarded more than 2,100 authorized patents.

Wan Gang, minister of science and technology, said that Chinese enterprises have made great progress in innovation capability in recent years, but still lag far behind foreign counterparts in implementing and optimizing economic structure, promoting transformation of the development pattern, driving industrial revitalization with scientific and technological inventions and meeting other requirements for the construction of an innovation-oriented country.
