Using the example of the academic Harmony Innovation Laboratory created by SWANLINK in the education industry, Zhou Qi emphasized SWANLINK's collaborative efforts with universities in establishing various tangible initiatives to construct a "nurturing cradle" for digital talents. He stated that in the future, SWANLINK will focus on three areas: establishing urban Harmony ecological chain industrial bases and Harmony labs, setting up Harmony innovation centers, and establishing talent centers. These initiatives aim to facilitate the growth of digital talents. Currently, SWANLINK has completed agreements with Xiong'an New Area and Wuxi City, and the next step is to fully implement the projects. Addressing the talent demand in the OpenHarmony ecosystem industry, SWANLINK is promoting initiatives that combine industry and education. They are strengthening open-source practice education to cultivate talents in open-source innovation.
As a platinum donor to the OpenAtom Foundation and a silver donor to the OpenHarmony project group, iSoftStone has consistently been a firm leader and builder in the OpenHarmony ecosystem. SWANLINK, as a pioneer in iSoftStone's open-source strategy, actively responds to the Ministry of Education's call for "promoting industry-education integration through education and industry assistance". At this conference, SWANLINK, in collaboration with Xi'an University of Electronic Science and Technology, Jinhua Polytechnic, and Excellent Innovation (Beijing) Technology Co., Ltd., jointly established the national OpenHarmony (Open Source Harmony) Intelligent Terminal and IoT Industry-Education Integration Community. The community aims to promote talent development within the OpenHarmony ecosystem, achieve organic connections between education, talent, industry, and innovation chains, and create a collaborative governance model involving schools, enterprises, and institutes. This model implements a teaching approach that synchronizes theory and practical training, co-cultivates students between schools and enterprises, and combines competitions and research for mutual certification. The goal is to nurture versatile talents and accelerate the construction of the OpenHarmony operating system ecosystem.
