Belt & Road Alliance for Sensing and IoT Collaboration (BRASIC) held its 2021 first domestic conference in Beijing on Mach 30.
BRASIC is an international organization initiated by the China Instrument and Control Society (CIS) with the support of the China Association for Science and Technology (CAST). It aims to build an effective technology exchange platform between "Belt and Road" countries under the new situation, develop an innovation cooperation network among "Belt and Road" countries, establish a stable transnational technology exchange and cooperation mechanism, push forward intelligent connectivity between "Belt and Road" countries, and promote the sustainable development of the sensing and IoT industry.
The purpose of this conference is to bring together the opinions and suggestions of domestic experts and organizations on how to make the development of BRASIC sustainable and healthy as an international platform.
Among the guests were You Zheng, Member of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, Vice President of Tsinghua University and President of CIS; Wang Chao from the Department of Regional Economy, National Development and Reform Commission; Wu Sihong, Deputy Director of the International Department, National Center for Science & Technology Evaluation, Ministry of Science and Technology; and Zhou Yan from the General Machinery Division, Department of Equipment Industry , Ministry of Industry and Information Technology.
You Zheng addressed the seminar, introducing the industrial background of the initiation of BRASIC. As required by industrial development and technical revolution, CIS has focused on sensing technology, equipment compatibility, information processing and security operation and maintenance for years, made fruitful efforts in a wide range of fields, and strongly supported IoT construction. It initiated BRASIC in the hope of working with all its partners to build the "Belt and Road" into a road of coping with challenges, maintaining the people's well-being, promoting economic renaissance, and releasing potential.
