On June 29, 2022, the inauguration and signing ceremony of Peng Huanwu Science and Education Cooperation Center jointly built by the Institute of Theoretical Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences (ITP-CAS) and Beihang University was held in Room C511 of the Main Building of Shahe Campus. Academician Cai Ronggen, Director of ITP-CAS, Academician Zou Bingsong, Director of the Center, Zhou Shangui and Wang Yanting, Deputy Directors of ITP-CAS, Academician Xu Huibin, President of Beihang University, Liu Shuchun and Huang Haijun, Vice Presidents of Beihang University, attended the event. The ceremony was presided over by Huang Haijun.

Xu Huibin extended a warm welcome to the visit of Academician Cai Ronggen and Academician Zou Bingsong. He noted that the study of theoretical physics is of great significance in natural science research and occupies an important position in the national science and technology development strategy. He hoped Beihang and ITP-CAS will take advantage of the Center to deepen cooperation with each other, promote the development of interdisciplinary disciplines, explore theinnovative talent training mode, provide strong support for national large scientific projects, and make greater contributions to the realization of high-level scientific and technological self-sufficiency.

Academician Cai Ronggen expressed his heartfelt congratulations on the establishment of Peng Huanwu Science and Education Cooperation Center, and introduced the layout and initiatives of ITP-CAS in the field of physics research. He said that basic research is the source of scientific and technological innovation, and the root of a strong country in science and technology, adding that both sides will take the strategic cooperation agreement as an opportunity and a new starting point, give full play to the advantages of their respective resources, and carry out all-round, broad and multi-level cooperation, so as to contribute to the construction of a strong country in science and technology and achieve high-level scientific and technological self-sufficiency.

Huang Haijun and Wang Yanting signed the strategic cooperation agreement on behalf of Beihang University and ITP-CAS respectively. Xu Huibin, Huang Haijun, Cai Ronggen and Zou Bingsong unveiled the nameplate for Peng Huanwu Science and Education Cooperation Center.

During the ceremony, Zou Bingsong was nominated as the director, Zhou Shangui and Lyu Guanghong the deputy directors and Geng Lisheng the executive director of the Center. They are issued with certificate by Xu Huibin and Liu Shuchun.

In his speech, Academician Zou Bingsong expressed his gratitude for Beihang’s guidance, support and assistance during the construction of the Center. Taking the discovery of the God particle and gravitational waves as examples, he emphasized the leading role of theoretical physics in the frontier research of physics and the significance of establishing the Center. He pointed out that both parties will carry out original basic research at the frontier of international physical science, cultivate a large number of young talent with solid foundation, broad vision, dedication and courage, and strive to build the Center into an international first-class scientific research and talent training base.

The strategic cooperation agreement between Beihang and ITP-CAS aims at the major needs of the country and the international scientific frontier, and is a major initiative to shoulder the mission of serving the country in the fields of aeronautics and astronautics. The two sides give full play to the advantages of their respective resources, and further promote the all-round cooperation in discipline construction, scientific research, talent cultivation and international exchanges and cooperation, following the principle of “mutual complementarity, collaborative innovation and win-win cooperation”.
