On January 26th, the awarding ceremony of "National Post-doctoral Research Workstation" and the seminar of "Cooperative R & D Center of Postdoctoral Program" of AIER was held in Changsha. At the meeting, Tao Long, deputy director of the Professional and Technical Personnel Management Office of the Provincial Department of Human Resources and Social Security, awarded AIER. At the same time, the report of two post-docs from the Cooperative R & D Center of Postdoctoral Program was also successfully completed.

It is reported that in November 2020, with the approval of the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security and the National Post-doctoral Management Committee, AIER was approved to set up the "National Post-doctoral Research Workstation". The establishment of a national science and technology innovation platform indicates that AIER can independently cultivate post-doctoral talents in the future. At this point, AIER also completely get through the whole chain of talent cultivation and incubation system from undergraduate to postdoctoral. This is an absolutely major breakthrough in deepening the reform of internal talent development system、mechanism and promoting the construction of scientific, as well as technological innovation platform.

Through the introduction of postdoctoral talents, accelerate scientific and technological innovation.

It is reported that in 2017, with the approval of the Provincial Department of Human Resources and Social Security, AIER and Central South University jointly established the "Cooperative R & D Center of Postdoctoral Program" to build the post-doctoral talent training innovation and entrepreneurship base.
