The China Academy of Engineering (CAE) inked a framework agreement with northeast China's Jilin Province to strengthen cooperation on scientific and technological innovation, the provincial government said Tuesday.

The partnership will see the development of a new research institute in Jilin, which aims at making breakthroughs on key technologies.

According to the agreement, Jilin will team up with CAE to promote digitalization and transformation of traditional industries to find new growth engines, building a platform for innovation and a high-end think tank.

Li Xiaohong, president of CAE, said the academy will have in-depth cooperation with Jilin in various areas, such as strategy consulting, talent training, and key industry cultivation.

Rich in scientific research and educational resources, Jilin has more than 50 research institutions and well-known colleges, which have yielded many high-tech achievements, including commercial high-resolution remote sensing satellites, the Fuxing bullet trains, and recombinant human insulin.
