SHANGHAI, Oct. 29 (Xinhua) -- The World Laureates Association Shanghai Center was established Tuesday at the ongoing World Laureates Forum held in the city, with a scientific community program unveiled.
Covering a planned area of 34 hectares with international joint labs built by Nobel Laureates, the community is expected to become a scientific base with industrial transformation capabilities, according to the project plan.
A new venue for the World Laureates Forum, an exhibition center, apartments for scientists and land for industrial use have been planned in the community, as well as residential facilities like bilingual schools and an international medical center.
Roger Kornberg, chairman of the World Laureates Association who was awarded the 2006 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, said the program will provide stronger support for young scientists and basic scientific research.
A total of 44 Nobel Prize laureates and 21 notable winners of other prestigious academic awards from around the world attended this year's forum. They will have discussions with Chinese academicians and young scientists.
