Tencent Holdings Ltd, a Chinese investment holding company, has reportedly inked a strategic partnership with science publisher Springer Nature in an effort to encourage young scientists to make breakthroughs in science and technology.
Under the deal, Springer Nature will unearth and encourage potential young scientists with a strict examination system while Tencent will be the supporter.
According to Cheng Wu, vice-president of Tencent, the company will also support basic scientific research programs across the world, which are of great significance but require long-term investment.
Both sides will also work together to help those young science and technology leaders to connect with industries, helping them transform scientific and technological achievements to drive the real economy.
Additionally, Springer Nature will officially become a partner of Tencent's We Summit, an annual gathering where luminaries share advanced ideas on science and technology.
