        The meeting was hosted by Dr. Wang Yunhong, who warmly welcomed the delegation from Henan Province, and highly appreciated Henan provincial government's determination and achievement in science, technology innovation, and aerogel material research. IBIH, as a shareholding enterprise of Henan Investment Group, has been committed to the research and application of aerogel materials since its establishment and has achieved remarkable results. The close cooperation with Henan Province and EMPA has accelerated the research and development and industrialization process of aerogel materials in Henan and contributed to the economic and social development of Henan. In 2017, IBIH established a wholly-owned subsidiary, Henan IBIH, in Xuchang City, Henan Province, which specialized in the R&D and production of aerogel products in the field of new energy, and whose lithium battery thermal barrier has secured a stable market share in the first place in the world.

        At the meeting, Dr. Wim Malfait introduced the overall situation of EMPA to the delegation. EMPA is part of ETH-Domain (top-notch Research for Switzerland). Founded in 1880, it is a world-renowned materials research institute with a history of over 100 years and one of the four top federal research institutes in Switzerland.

        Then, Dr. Zhao Shanyu, a Senior Aerogel Scientist of EMPA, introduced EMPA's latest research results in aerogel and the strategic cooperation process between EMPA and IBIH. He pointed out that aerogel, as the world's least dense solid, has great value and innovation potential. Especially in the field of energy, the application prospect is rosy, EMPA is willing to continue in-depth cooperation with IBIH to promote the research and industrialization of aerogel materials in Henan.
        Dr. Liu Yujiang, Vice Governor of Henan Province, said at the meeting that the Henan Provincial Government attaches great importance to scientific and technological innovation and international cooperation, especially for aerogel, a new material with great strategic value and development prospects. He hopes that through the strategic cooperation between EMPA and IBIH, the research and development and industrialization process of aerogel materials in Henan could be promoted, which bring new impetus and innovative vitality into Henan's scientific technological, and economic development. At the same time, he also expressed his gratitude to the expert team of EMPA, believing that their professionalism and experience will boost scientific and technological innovation in Henan Province.
