SESE has always attached great importance to the application of NSFC. It holds mobilization meetings and seminars every year to strengthen overall planning and improve the application level through a series of forms such as expert lectures and individual counseling. In recent years, the number and quality of funded projects have maintained a stable upward trend, and important projects have made breakthroughs.
