China-Ukraine Workshop on Resources Classification: Status, Mapping and Application was held in Beijing on June 1-3. The workshop was jointly organized by the International Knowledge Centre for Engineering Sciences and Technology (IKCEST), under the auspices of UNESCO, the Resources and Reserves Evaluation Center under the Ministry of Land Resources, State Commission of Ukraine on Mineral Resources and CNPC Research Institute of Petroleum Exploration and Development.
On June 1, Prof. Chen Ling of Zhejiang University, also a member of IKCEST’s research team, gave a lecture titled “The era of big data” to the participants of the workshop. Prof. Chen briefed the audience on the big data’s latest development, technology trend and prospect of application and engaged in intensive discussions based on practical application of big data in corporate management and data classification.
The workshop was held on June 2-3 at the CNPC Research Institute of Petroleum Exploration and Development’s conference room. Zhang Dawei, Director of the Resources and Reserves Evaluation Center, and Georgii Rudko, Chairman of State Commission of Ukraine on Mineral Resources, attended and addressed the meeting. A total of 12 speakers from China and Ukraine made reports about the two countries’ management of mineral resource reserves, classification of mineral resources and petroleum, shale gas exploration and the study of international classification system. The audience, based on their respective professions and interested areas, exchanged ideas with the speakers and discussed the two countries’ similarities and differences in the related areas. Tian Yajun, technical director of IKCEST energy sub-system and a senior engineer at the National Institute of Clean-and-Low-Carbon Energy (NICE) of China, delivered a report entitled Construction Principle and Service Outlook of Professional Knowledge Service System on Energy (taking coal resource classification as an example). After the report, he made in-depth exchanges with the audience and received positive feedback.
The successful conclusion of the workshop strengthened reciprocal cooperation between China and Ukraine and complemented the respective advantages in the field of mineral resources. It also elevated IKCEST’s international influence, expanded its communications with external organizations and laid a solid foundation for future exchange and cooperation with domestic and foreign institutions.
