US Talent Training System
Talents are always the
driving force of a company development and education plays a vital role in the
talent training system. Washington University in St. Louis is a research-focusing
university, and attaches great importance to the scientific research to improve
its academic standing. Since its establishment in 1853, 25 Nobel Prize winners (four of them
won the Nobel Prize in chemistry) have studied or engaged in the teaching and research work of the university.
Mr. Mark emphasized
that cultivating students' innovative thinking is
far more important than imparting specific knowledge and skills. So, the U.S universities
encourage students to fully display
their innovative ideas and discover their potentials by providing strong
funding supports to the researches.
In terms of the
school-enterprise cooperation, Mr. Mark expressed his expectations that more
and more elite alumni could create jobs for the society like the founder of
OKCHEM, and encouraged the chemical talents to join the innovative companies
like OKCHEM, to create more value for the chemical industry and alma mater
