They encouraged SLS to continue to keep its advantages in grassland research, its development with unique characteristics and carry out innovative research intended for the local needs. The experts hoped that SLS can determine its essential research direction and concentrate its energy on specific researches. They also hoped that while keeping its unique research characteristics, SLS should free itself from the influence of mindset imposed by agriculture science and make its biological research shift from macro-application to micro-internal research. The experts thought that SLS should further the exchanges and mutual learning between scientific research platforms and strengthen the two-way flow of talent teams to advance the development and prosperity of biology.
