CAS’s Hundred Talents Program was the first talent recruiting and training program in China with high aims, high standards and a high level of support. Since its establishment in 1994, the Hundred Talents Program has been a key program for attracting and training academic and technology leaders. With the launch of the pilot project for CAS’s Knowledge Innovation Program, this program has made significant progress. Supported by an exclusive talent grant by the central government, the Program to Engage Outstanding Overseas Talent was launched in 1998. In the meantime, CAS made the decision to support recipients of the National Outstanding Young Investigator Grant through the Hundred Talents Program. In 2001, the Chinese Overseas Established Scholars Program was added. CAS has attracted and trained almost a thousand talented individuals through the Hundred Talents Program and built a team of excellent academic leaders. In addition, the program itself has become a well-known and influential talent program in domestic and international academic societies.
