 Two causes of collective resignation in Hefei nuclear Institute of Chinese Academy of Sciences


2. There may be two main reasons to stimulate everyone to leave their posts. One is Wu Yichan, director of the Nuclear Research Institute; the other is the in-hospital reform initiated since May, which has weakened the power of the director and increased the workload of researchers.

3. After the resignation event was fermented, the official website of China Science Fenglin company, which is closely related to the Institute and its director Wu Yichan, quickly deleted the information related to Wu Yichan and the Institute. Some former employees mentioned that some of them would join the company later.

4. According to the staff of the Nuclear Power Research Institute, Wu Yichan once mentioned in the Institute, if you want to buy a house or a car, you can come to my company and make money together.

On July 21, the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) website announced again that Liu He, vice premier of the State Council, listened to the relevant reports of CAS, and asked the general office of the State Council, the Ministry of science and technology, and the Chinese Academy of Sciences to set up a special working group. Recently, he went to Hefei Institute of material science of the Chinese Academy of Sciences to conduct in-depth investigation on the staff turnover of its subordinate research institutes.

A number of Hefei Institute staff confirmed to the reporter of Finance and economics that on June 15, more than 90 scientific research personnel left their jobs collectively, all of whom came from the Institute of nuclear safety technology (hereinafter referred to as the Institute).

The Chinese Academy of Sciences is a public institution directly under the State Council. Hefei Institute of Sciences is one of the largest comprehensive scientific research institutions under the Chinese Academy of Sciences.

A staff member of the nuclear power station who left the office told Caijing that the number of departures on that day was 92. However, this figure has not been officially confirmed by the Hefei Institute. The former employee disclosed to finance and economics that most of the employees who left this time may be employed in Zhongke Fenglin. According to public information, Feng Lin of China Science and technology is closely related to Wu Yichan, director of the Institute.

Zhongke Fenglin is a nuclear system R & D and technology industry transformation company. Many media reports mentioned that Wu Yichan was the founder of Zhongke Fenglin. On all kinds of company information inquiry platforms, Wu Yichan has no records of scientific research or nuclear technology related companies.

According to the enterprise data, there are 12 companies named Zhongke Fenglin and 9 in Anhui. The legal representatives of 8 companies are Hu juping and the other is song Baobao. One of them, Zhongke Fenglin Holding Group Co., Ltd., has two shareholders, Hu juping and Gao Fang, each holding 50% of the shares. This company is also the investor of the other five companies.

The former employee told Caijing that Hu juping and Gao Fang were both employees of the Institute. In this regard, Caijing tried to verify with the Nuclear Power Institute, but no positive response was received by the time of publication.

Unlike the uproar over collective resignations, some changes are taking place quietly.

In the past two days, the official website of Fenglin has been greatly revised. The most prominent position on the home page of the website is 6 pictures. Just two days ago, two of them were related to Wu Yichan, namely, researcher Wu Yichan was elected academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Article 1 and researcher Wu Yichan was elected member of the International Institute of nuclear energy (INEA) in Article 3.

The media tracking column at the bottom of the home page once had the headline of Wu Yichans interview with Anhui Satellite TV, which was also deleted.

According to the recruitment information released by China Science and technology Fenglin in September 2019, the company mainly takes the Institute of nuclear energy safety technology of Chinese Academy of Sciences as the core, which has been deleted in the introduction of the official website. Finance and economics reporter repeatedly called the teacher Chen who left contact information below the recruitment information, and they were all in a state of no answer.

All sorts of signs show that the company is desalinating all relations with the Institute of nuclear safety, Hefei Institute of material science, Chinese Academy of Sciences, and Wu Yichan. Finance and economics reporter in nearly a week to call Wu Yichans mobile phone number and the official website announced the phone number, always no one answered.

What is the reason for collective turnover?

There is a reason why the collective turnover of researchers is unusual. The in-service staff of Hefei Institute said that in the Research Institute, the usual resignation process is very long, but the resignation application of the Institute was approved on the same day.

The Hefei Institute recalled to the reporter of Finance and economics that on June 15, the Hefei Institute came to dismantle the entrance guard of the nuclear power station. There were police, security guards and at least five directors in the hospital, and staff members recorded with hand-held video recorders.

The sudden change of the security team caused the emotional reaction of some nuclear workers, and some researchers had conflicts with the dismantling of the security team on the scene.

All the institutes have been responsible for their own security, and the Institute is also equipped with an independent security team. He said that the main reason for this is that the leadership of the Institute believes that there are a lot of classified documents and information inside the Institute, and that security also involves internal network issues.

The conflict continued into the middle of the night, during which some girls were pushed, triggering further confrontation.

The above-mentioned Hefei Institute said that after the conflict escalated, some researchers were in a state of agitation. Some people offered to resign, and then others responded. The hospital took a tough attitude and immediately decided to let all the 13 directors move to the nuclear power station to work, and approved their resignation on the spot.

He analyzed that the hospital was so well prepared that it was planned in advance, not a temporary decision.

Wang Tianhao stressed to Caijing that he thought the collective resignation of the Nuclear Research Institute was just a normal flow of personnel, and there was no collective resignation. He said that the Institute has been established for many years, and there have been more than ten research teams in the past few years. It turns out that many people in the nuclear Institute have gone to various research teams, which is not staff turnover.

One of the doubts about this incident is why the replacement of the security system can make the researchers within the system leave their jobs immediately and give up their stable jobs?

A number of people related to the nuclear power institute told Caijing that the security incident was only a play on the theme. There may be two main reasons for stimulating everyone to leave their posts. One is Wu Yichan, director of the Nuclear Power Institute. Another important reason is the in-hospital reform launched since May.

Wu Yichan is one of the reasons why some employees of the Nuclear Power Research Institute take the opportunity to leave.

An employee of the Nuclear Power Research Institute, who had left his post before, told Caijing that Wu Yicans management style was very strong. When he was still in office, there were two cultures in the Institute, overtime culture and volleyball culture. Every month, the Institute will count the overtime situation of everyone. Even if there is nothing to do, they have to wait until 90 oclock to get off work.

Wu Yican likes to play volleyball. There are regular volleyball competitions in the Institute. We often organize training. He doesnt like playing volleyball, but he still cant refuse.

What makes him even more intolerable is to prepare the program for the annual New Years Day party. In the two months before the new years day, almost all his time and energy have to be spent on the preparation of the program. There should be some links of praising and praising Wu Yichan. Finally, there are gifts and the significance of gifts. Every department has put a lot of effort into preparing for it. I feel particularly headache and tired.

He stressed to Caijing that in recent years, the proportion of nuclear power companies leaving their posts has been very high, and the reason for leaving their posts is that they cant stand the cultural atmosphere in the Institute.

The internal reform launched in May is the reason why other people leave their jobs.

According to the official website of Hefei academy of Sciences, on May 6, this year, Hefei Institute held an announcement meeting of the heads of functional departments and supporting departments. At the meeting, President Liu Jianguo pointed out that in order to further benchmarking international first-class scientific research institutions, escort scientific and technological innovation with systems, and reduce the burden of researchers, the Institute has launched a series of reform measures.

These measures include, but are not limited to: create an innovative culture of Science Island in the new era, implement flat management, optimize the layout of disciplines, integrate the platform for transfer and transformation of achievements, strengthen the integration of science and education, and deepen international cooperation.

A person from Hefei Institute explained to Caijing that the flat management in the reform measures has led to the contradiction between the Institute and the Institute. In the past, the director of each institute could directly control the funds for the project. Now, some directors can only approve 5 million yuan a year, and the rest need the approval of the Academy.

He believes that flat management is a good thing, but due to the removal of some administrative posts, researchers have to bear the work of making manuscripts and PPT, which virtually increases the workload.

In addition, the reform also cancelled the third level project, originally, the third level project was for new people to experience, but now many new masters and doctors do not have the opportunity to experience.

After the reform, the pi system (academic leader system) to be implemented by Hefei Institute has also caused disputes among some researchers. This means thousands of researchers with different research directions will be directly managed by hundreds of administrators, explained a researcher at the Hefei Institute.

She abandoned the advantages of several hundred of Pis engineering systems, and united the research groups as a result. Todays scientific research is not purely basic research. We have to gather the strength of everyone to start scientific research.

In recent years, the Chinese Academy of Sciences has been carrying out reform. The focus of the reform is to accelerate the transformation of scientific research achievements, introduce market-oriented investment and financing mechanism, talent introduction and training mechanism, etc.

Another Research Institute under Hefei Institute disclosed to Caijing that not only the Nuclear Research Institute, but also hundreds of doctors and masters in his research have left since May this year. If you include other research institutes, including project employment and talent dispatch, there will be more involved.

Another researcher also mentioned that some people left his institute one after another, but the specific number of resignations is not clear. Many people leave in silence, unlike the Nuclear Power Institute, which is a concentrated outbreak of resignation.

Xu Guosheng, director of Tokamak Physics Laboratory of plasma Institute of Hefei Institute of plasma, refuted such information. He told finance and economics that no employee of plasma Institute left in the past two months.

How is the intensity of reform just right?

Finance and economics reporter learned that some of the resigned researchers went to university to teach, some found their own way to find a new career, and some started their own businesses in groups.

According to a source from the Nuclear Power Research Institute, some of the employees who left the company may be employed in the secondary school of science and technology Fenglin. Director Wu mentioned in the office before that whether you want to buy a house or a car. If you want to come to my company, you can make money together. But at present, we have not gone through the entry procedures. Now the news is too tight.

Finance and economics reporter did not get the exact information about the number of people leaving the company.

Two days after the security incident, on the afternoon of June 17, the Institute held a mid-2020 work in progress exhibition. According to the official website of the Institute, Wu Yichan, director of the Institute, stressed at the meeting that as a member of the Institute, the Institute will continue to firmly support the reform of the Institute under the new situation, requiring all scientific research personnel to maintain scientific rationality, not to spread rumors, not to believe rumors, and to encourage all staff to focus on nothing, continue to do their own work in the front line of scientific research and make achievements.

The collective resignation incident was put at the top of the storm at this time. The in-service staff of the nuclear power institute that Caijing reporter could contact were generally unwilling to make more analysis and comments.

A staff member of the nuclear power station, who is still in office, told Caijing that it was not a collective resignation, but an inter departmental optimization and adjustment. However, he did not continue to explain the specific situation of optimization and adjustment to the reporter of Caijing.

No one answered the phone of the comprehensive office of Hefei Institute. The staff of the supervision and audit office provided the call from the media office of Hefei Institute, but no one answered.

An employee of iFLYTEK in Hefei, after hearing about the resignation of Hefei Institute of science and technology, asked his friend who worked in Hefei Institute whether he chose to leave because of the income problem. The reply was that he had no mind to care about the income because there was no project to do.

In recent years, it has become a hot topic that researchers in university research institutes run away. Science and technology companies continue to grow, and the upsurge of scientific and technological entrepreneurship is on the rise. Many university researchers are poached by technology companies or choose to start their own businesses.

A technical expert who has left the Chinese Academy of Sciences to start a business told Caijing that the loss of staff in the research institutes in recent years does exist. The main reason is that the welfare of the research institutes is not as good as that of university teachers. In the past few years, technology companies have given high treatment, and technical experts can get subsidies from the local government when starting a business, and the financing is also better Potential.

The technical expert mentioned that the scientific research system of the Chinese Academy of Sciences is of an administrative nature, and all scientific research projects are allocated by institutions at all levels. Such a policy is actually beneficial to the efficient management of research funds. However, when it comes to the specific implementation stage, the action is easy to get out of shape after being allocated at different levels. It often happens that good projects dont get money, and some project leaders who are good at handling relationships can get money.

It is very common for CAS to separate research institutes and set up subordinate research teams. The starting point of this policy is good, which can strengthen the focus on the subdivision of scientific research direction. However, there are also some researchers who are in conflict with such a policy. According to the Chinese Academy of Sciences interviewed by Caijing, this tends to form a fragmented scientific research framework, which leads to the failure of scientific research to focus on and form breakthroughs, and some researchers will lose their sense of achievement.

There is also an important reason for the anxiety of basic scientific research personnel. People from the Chinese Academy of Sciences interviewed by Caijing said that it is easy to form a small circle culture in scientific research institutions. A former researcher of the Shenzhen Institute of advanced technology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences told Caijing that this is because the circle of specific research fields is very small and there is close communication within the circle.

All circles want to stand on their own, but a researcher going down from the research institute to the research team means that your promotion path may be narrowed. The golden period of scientific research is very short, and it is more difficult to be promoted after several years of delay, which will affect the salary and welfare.

In view of the above factors, many people choose to continue their research in research institutes set up by commercial companies. In recent years, self built research institutes by large companies and head start-up companies have become the mainstream, because enterprises find that the effect of direct cooperation with university research institutes is not ideal, so it is better to establish research institutes by themselves. Experts from the Chinese Academy of Sciences mentioned above.

In fact, this road is not as easy as expected. Technology companies have shifted their focus to commercialization, and the phenomenon of hiring technical experts at high prices has gradually decreased. The primary market has entered the cold winter period of capital, and the financing cases and amount have decreased significantly compared with previous years.

Generally speaking, the research direction of professional research institutes is more inclined to basic scientific research, and there is a lot of distance between basic scientific research and commercialization of technology.

For individuals, the two research directions are not the same; for a country, basic scientific research is the foundation of technology industrialization, and there is no strong foundation for basic scientific research. In the long run, the process of technology commercialization is neither stable nor fast. Experts said that the Chinese Academy of Sciences and other large national research institutes are the backbone of Chinas basic scientific research, and a high-quality and stable research team is the top priority to ensure that professional research institutes can continuously produce basic scientific research achievements and strengthen Chinas basic scientific research strength. Therefore, it is very important to ensure the stability and growth of the research personnel in professional research institutes. Source: Hu Shuli, editor in charge of financial magazine_ MN7479
