The first Shanghai University League’s Forum for International Young Scholars will kick off at 20:20 on Saturday night at Zhangjiang AIsland.

Hosted by the Shanghai Educational Talent Exchange and Service Center and Shanghai University League, the online forum consists of 47 sub-forums organized by 14 local universities, including, Fudan, Shanghai Jiao Tong and Tongji.

The sub-forums will be launched later, covering areas including artificial intelligence, bio-medicine, education and electronic science and technology. They are expected to attract more than 1,000 young scholars aged under 45 from 30 countries and regions who will share their latest research achievements via the Internet.

Jiang Fan, vice president of the Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine, said the school will host the medicine session which will include 11 sub-forums with topics ranging from big concepts such as global health to small precise medicine applications such as molecular channels.

Li Yongzhi, deputy director of the Shanghai Education Commission, said the forum is expected to help accelerate the resumption of exchanges of scientific research as the pandemic stabilizes.

“The pandemic pushed us to move teaching online, and now we are trying to explore international exchanges in science in this way too,” he said. “We hope the forum will be a regular platform for academic communication.”
