BEIJING, April 24 (Xinhuanet) -- For more on the Tsinghua university's anniversary, we're now joined in the studio by our Current Affairs Commentator, Professor Teng Jimeng from Beijing Foreign Studies University.
Q1: A university has three core functions -- generating new knowledge, educating students and contributing to society. And they all involve "creativity". China has put creativity as at the heart of the nation's future. Chinese universities, including Tsinghua, are making great efforts to promote creativity in science and technology. What more can we do in this field?
Q2: Tsinghua is rated as a top Chinese university. But joining the global elite is still a challenge for Tsinghua. And the whole country is eager to see one of its own universities deliver a Nobel Prize winner. Actually many presidents of the world's top universities, like Harvard and Oxford, say it's only a matter of time for Tsinghua to have its own Nobel Prize winners. How do you think our universities can achieve this?
