In the 13 years since the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS)'s Knowledge Innovation Project was first implemented, the CAS's technological innovation ability has been greatly improved. Its international academic influence and status in the world compared to similar research institutions has also significantly improved, and it has become a national research institution with internationally important influence, according to the CAS's 2011 work meeting held in Beijing on Jan. 25.

Of those, in eight subjects, including chemistry, materials science, mathematics, engineering, computer science, environment and ecology, earth science and physics, CAS was ranked in the top five.
