Du Feijin put forward four suggestions on building high-level think tank: first, face the future and scientifically grasp the development trend. Think tank research must give play to academic leading function, penetrate multiple rationality and value pursuit such as science and technology and humanities, combine cutting-edge technology development like 5G, AI, industrial Internet, brain science technology, etc., deepen international research and development cooperation and promote interdisciplinary collaborative research and independent innovation. Second, serve governance, be a good decision - making staff assistant. Think tank should be problem oriented and practice oriented, focus on complicated and changing global issues, major strategic needs of the country and the general concerns of the people, carry out forward-looking, targeted and reserve research, form a sound interaction with policy makers, and promote high-quality transformation of think tank results. Third, strengthen intelligence leading and lead cultural exchanges and mutual learning. Various think tank should actively promote think tank cooperation, be a true friend and messenger in spreading of idea, policy explanation and public opinions communication, eliminate misunderstanding and misjudgment through reasonable, valid and useful high-quality achievements, gather wisdom from all parties, inject new connotation for global innovation intelligence and provide new concepts.

Base on China's practice, grasp Chinese characteristics, gather top intelligent resources, inspire creativity vitality of high-end talents, spread unique contribution of Chinese intelligence and Chinese scheme and constantly enhance international popularity and influence of high-end think tank.

Zhang Qin pointed out in his speech that science and technology think tanks should pay attention to rigorous theoretical and empirical research. First, at the theoretical level, the concept should be clear and logically consistent. At present, many major concepts in the scientific and technological field of China need to be sorted and in-depth study should be done by the think tank. Second, science and technology think tank should make proper decision for serving the government with the support of data and solid evidence. Any policy study and formulation are done on the basis of research on solid evidence.
