General Technology Center

Brief Introduction 

The General Technology Center (GTC) was established in 2019, including Mechanic & Alignment Technology Group, Conditional Technology Group, Electrical engineering & Electromagnetic compatibility technology group, and Radiation Safety and Protection Group. The center has 50 in-service staff, among whom 4 have senior title and 22 have deputy senior title. 40% of the whole staff is under the age of 35 years old. 

For all scientific research projects of IMP, GTC aims to  make a unified plan for general engineering and technical programs, solve general engineering problems during the construction, and provide universal facility guarantee for scientific projects. 

The responsibilities of GTC include: design, construction, installation, operation and maintenance of civil engineering, general technology, radiation safety and machanic-related tasks for all the IMP’s projects ; design of the general engineering work in nuclear physics and target system; ensuring the implementation of civil engineering, general system and radiation safety protection in the construction of HIAF&CiADS; participating actively in the installation and debugging of the key equipment. 

The establishment and operation of GTC can free the front-line researchers from general engineering and technical works, so that they can concentrate on deep research in the professional fields, which is beneficial to improve the research and development level of IMP. Committed to "Daily Service, Standardized Design, Process-oriented Construction, Practical Research", GTC will take the advantage of collaborative teamwork to achieve operation efficiency and push forward the construction process of all the new projects.
