"Science and Technology Innovation Week" is a technology brand activity that the technology center of DFM strives to create, and is also one of the carriers of Dongfeng's scientific and technological innovation strength demonstration. It aims to build "three platforms" (achievement display platform, technology release platform, Innovation exchange platform), stimulate the enthusiasm of innovation, and promote Industry interaction within the corporation. The event was held for the first time in 2016. The theme of this week is "Science and Technology Innovation fuel the Future". It focuses on the scientific and technological achievements and related technological routes of DFM in the fields of "Intelligence, Electricity, Lightweight, Networking and Sharing".
On the afternoon of 17th, at the invitation of Dongfeng Electric Vehicle Company Limited, Zhong Yuning went to Dongfeng New Energy Industry base to have an in-depth discussion with Mr. Yang Shouwu, Vice-General Manager of the company, and Mr. Chen Yinzhu, Director of the Engineering Center.
