On the morning of November 28, 2016, FIT held a face-to-face exchange meeting. 10 excellent young faculty shared their progress of innovation research in 2016 as well as the future important research directions together with 16 members of the academic committee, including Academician Chen Chun, Dean Bao Hujun and vice dean Li Erping.
From 2015, FIT set up the Youth Innovation Award to encourage outstanding young faculty. Academician Chen Chun and Professor Yan Xiaolang believed this activity is very important for young teachers’ growth, and they hoped FIT keeps its development better. When young teachers reported their research work, academic members listened carefully and gave some pertinent proposals which would be very helpful for their growth. Finally, 4 outstanding young people got the 2016 youth innovation award.
