Brief introduction of FJIRSM

Fujian Institute of Research on the Structure of Matter(FJIRSM), Chinese Academy of Sciences was founded in 1960 by academician LU Jiaxi, a well-known scientist and educator in China. It is one of the excellent research institutes of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. After more than 50 years of development, it has got more than 230 important scientific and technological achievements and awards such as the three national science and technology awards and the special award for Scientific and Technological Progress of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. It has become a comprehensive research base for structural chemistry, new materials and device integration and relevant application with international reputations.

In order to implement Haixi development strategy, on June 18, 2010, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Fujian Provincial Government and the Fuzhou Municipal Government jointly held a signing and foundation laying ceremony for the establishment of Haixi Institutes of Chinese Academy of Sciences. The institutes are constructed on the basis of Fujian Institute of Research on the Structure of Matter. There are five research institutes including Fujian Institute of Research on the Structure of Matte, Institute of Materials Engineering, Institute of Advanced Manufacturing Technology Integration, Xiamen Institute of Rare Earth Materials, Quanzhou Institute of Equipment Manufacturing, and Across-Taiwan-Strait Science and Technology Exchange Center and Haixi Incubation Center of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.

FJIRSM currently have more than 940 employees, including: 5 academicians of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, 100 researcher professors, 152 associate professors, 19 winners of Distinguished Youth Fund, 6 winners of Ten Thousand Talents Program of P. R. China

FJIRSM is one of the units granting doctoral and master's degrees approved by the Degree Committee of the State Council in 1978. Currently, there are 6 doctoral and master's degree programs in the first-level disciplines of chemistry, and 6 doctoral and master's programs in inorganic chemistry, physical chemistry, organic chemistry, condensed matter physics, materials physics and chemistry, biochemistry and molecular biology; bioengineering and chemical engineering. 5 master candidates training sites for materials, materials engineering, optical engineering, and control engineering; and two postdoctoral mobile stations in chemistry, materials science and engineering. There are more than 600 students studying in Fujian Innovation Academy.

In recent years, FJIRSM has been continuously strengthening the construction and development of high-level technological innovation platforms, including the State Key Laboratory of Structural Chemistry, the National Research Center for Optoelectronic Crystal Material Engineering Technology, the Key Laboratory of Optoelectronic Material Chemistry and Physics of Chinese Academy of Sciences, the Key Laboratory of Coal-to-Ethylene Glycol and Related Technologies of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, and the Key Laboratory of Design and Assembly of Functional Nanostructure, Chinese Academy of Sciences.

FJIRSM is focused on the strategic positioning of “focusing on original basic research, strengthening innovation, and promoting the transfer of achievements”, taking the advantages of subjects such as structural chemistry, catalytic chemistry, crystal materials, and laser technology to promote new materials and new technologies.

Based on the present and looking forward to the future, FJIRSM will face the frontiers of science and technology in the world, face the major needs of the country, and face the main battlefield of the national economy. It has become a first-class international research institution for material science and technology.
