BEIJING, May 13 (Xinhua) -- An exhibition of China's latest nano-tech achievements opened today in Beijing's Science and Technology Museum.
The exhibition, a sub-programme of "Science Tunnel 3.0", is co-sponsored by the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), the Max Planck Society (MPS) of Germany and the China Association for Science and Technology, and will remain open until June 28.
On display are large-format images and video clips from cutting-edge science projects on nano technology, such as green printing, diagnosis and treatment integration and oncology drugs.
In the Science Tunnel, visitors move through several stations to learn about the functions of microscopic blocking elements. Science Tunnel 3.0, started in 2012, falls into eight themes -- the brain, complexity, energy, health, life, matter, society and the universe -- and speculates how science change lives in the coming decades. Science Tunnel was seen for the first time during the World EXPO 2000 in Hannover, Germany.
Cooperation between the CAS and the MPS began with the MPS offering a few guest researcher posts for Chinese scientists in 1974. Four decades have witnessed the cooperation developed from Chinese researchers' sporadic advanced studies in Germany to a comprehensive academic interchange involving 800 people a year.
The MPS has 33 partner groups in China. For example, Chinese and German scientists joined in the research of severe acute respiratory syndrome virus (SARS) in 2003.
