In the speech, Fan Liming said that in a new historical position, Shandong University actively responded to the needs of the party and the country for higher education, fully promoted the "double first-class construction", implemented the strategy of serving Shandong, and promoted the construction of new engineering disciplines. The establishment of School of Qilu Transportation is the landmark event in the history of Shandong University's school development and has opened up a precedent for the joint establishment of the college by the university and enterprise of Shandong University. It is a new attempt for the school to deepen comprehensive reform and promote innovation and development. It is also a major measure to help the "The Belt and Road Initiative" strategy, which has important and far-reaching practical significance. At present, Shandong University's "double first-class" construction has entered the stage of full implementation. The school will take School of Qilu Transportation as an important content of "double first-class" to think, deploy and build, and adhere to precise positioning, to first-class standards, to an open perspective, to flexible mechanisms, and strive to build an international innovative model college and a world-class transportation discipline, build a model of school and enterprise cooperation that integrate teaching and research, provide a brand-new development for the "double first-class" construction of Shandong University style.
Xu Chunfu said that the establishment of School of Qilu Transportation and Qilu Transportation Science and Technology Research Institute of Shandong University was a major event for the Group to implement its science and technology strategy and talent strategy. It was also a grand event for the integrated development of "industry, research, and product" in schools and enterprises in Shandong Province. The establishment of colleges and research institutes will further improve the Group's innovation system, and bring strong scientific and technological support for the improvement of the Group's scientific research level and the development of high-tech industries, promote major projects for the conversion of new and old kinetic energy to enhance the scientific and technological content and talents of enterprises. Broadening the road and providing important support for the construction of the first-class transportation discipline of Shandong University would stimulate a series of chemical reactions in talent, academics, technology and the real economy to create a better future.
Academician Nie Jianguo said that the establishment of School of Qilu Transportation coincided with the development of transportation disciplines and the strategic goal of building a new era of transportation. Shandong University and Qilu Transportation Development Group met the national strategic need as a starting point and focus on the implementation of national strategies. Facing the key scientific and technological issues in China can not only serve the national strategic needs, but also promote the "double first-class" construction of Shandong University with the basic idea of "educating people in an upright position", promote Qilu Transportation Development Group's innovation to drive high-quality development and serve the major project of the conversion of old and new kinetic energy in Shandong, which is a very forward- looking and constructive step taken by Shandong University and Qilu Transportation Development Group.
Li Shucai said that School of Qilu Transportation will deeply explore and fully utilize the resource advantages of joint school-enterprise running, innovate the management system and mechanism, create a talented scientific research height, promote cross-disciplinary integration, strengthen the transformation of scientific and technological achievements to achieve the transition from professional division to cross-disciplinary integration. It would promote the shift from disciplinary orientation to industry demand orientation and the shift from adaptive service to support and guidance. It helped striving to set a model for the first-class discipline construction of Shandong University, and also to support the leap-forward development of Qilu Transportation Development Group, serve major projects of new and old kinetic energy conversion and national innovation-driven strategies in Shandong Province.
Representatives of teachers and students of School of Qilu Transportation made typical speeches respectively. Shandong Development and Reform Commission, Shandong Highway Society, Qilu Transportation Development Group, Shandong Energy Group Xinwen Mining Group, Shandong Academy of Transportation Science, Shandong University of Architecture, Shandong University related functions and relevant persons in charge from departments and colleges attended the conference.
School of Qilu Transportation of Shandong University, co- constructed by Shandong University and Qilu Transportation Development Group Co., Ltd., is an important part of Shandong University's promotion of the "double first-class" construction. It is also an important measure for school-enterprise integration to promote the conversion of old and new kinetic energy in Shandong Province. The dean is responsible for the system and implements a management mechanism that can go up, down, and go in and out. The council is the college's decision- making body. At the same time, the college has established party committees, academic committees, and strategic advisory committees to ensure the school's direction and promote college development. The Qilu Transportation Science and Technology Research Institute of Shandong University is constructed concurrently with the college, and is responsible for the coordination and management of scientific research projects entrusted by Qilu Transportation Development Group to Shandong University, focusing on scientific research and achievement transformation and industrialization. In the future, School of Qilu Transportation will maintain on the basis of advantages, it will focus on the construction of new engineering disciplines, and fully integrate school transportation in key technical directions such as transportation infrastructure disaster prevention and control, transportation infrastructure information, construction and intelligent monitoring, urban underground space development, intelligent perception and intelligent decision-making, and intelligent transportation. Making full use of the resources of Qilu transportation development Group and technological advantages in the transport sector to promote the related disciplines of road, rail, rail transportation, underground space engineering and intelligent transportation and other development and scientific and technological progress to a great extent.
