2018 TPE Science & Technology Training sponsored by the Bureau of International Co-operation Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), organized by the Third Pole Environment (TPE) program, supported by Chinese Academy of Sciences-Tribhuvan University (CAS-TU) Kathmandu Center for Research and Education (KCRE) and the China Society on Tibetan Plateau (CSTP) was held successfully in China. There were about 40 participants from universities and research institutions of 12 countries participating the “Belt and Road” initiative, including China, Russia, Pakistan, Nepal, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia, Bangladesh, Iran, Sri Lanka and India etc.
The 15-day training started from 24th July to 7th August 2018 including 22 indoor lectures, 3 practical courses in CAS key laboratories, a 1-day field excursion and 5 visits in Beijing. During the training, prominent scientists from international scientific community were invited to introduce latest methods, technology and achievements on 13 themes of Third Pole Environment research in geology, geophysics, hydrology, environmental change and ecology. Leading by CAS member Prof. Lin Ding, the training organized a 1-day geological field excursion to Yunmeng Mountain-Baihewan National Geological Park in Beijing. During the excursion, Prof. Ding introduced Yunmeng Mountain metamorphic core complex and cratonic destruction, Yanshan mountain landscape, Baihe river landscape and Baihe wetland landscape. All participants were invited to visit University of Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing Earthquake and Building Science Museum, Zologicial Musuem, Geological Museum of China and Beijing Museum of Natural History. Nepalese Ambassador in China Mr. Leela Mani Paudyal attended the training lecture and expressed his wishes of continuously promoting the scientific collaboration between Nepal and China under the frame work of TPE programme.
The training promoted scientific exchange to facilitate the implementation of the TPE program and cooperation among the countries participating the “Belt and Road” initiative. The training also acquainted young scientists, who work at the forefront of scientific research, with cutting-edge knowledge to help them broaden their scientific horizon and improve their scientific capability.
