Selection Criteria and Process

(1) Cutting-edge technologies for global NEVs

1. Selection criteria

Forward-looking feature, which refer to the prediction and judgment of the development of NEV technology to be successful in the field;

Leading feature, which refers to its ability to take a leading role in both basic and cutting-edge research in new energy vehicles;

Disruptive feature, which refers to its impact of revolutionary change in the development of new energy vehicles;

Development prospective, which refers to its industrial application, and potential economic and social benefits.

2. Selection process

Candidate technology collection: each Committee member can recommend two or three technologies in the same field;

Achievement search: based on the experts' recommendations, the Secretariat of the Commission will retrieve all relevant papers for 2016-2018 from the SCI journal papers in the core collection of Web of Science, held by Clarivate Analytics. The recommended cutting-edge technologies will be quantified in terms of such aspects as number of papers, total citations, average publication years, and percentage of frequently cited papers.

Initial evaluation: the initial evaluation will be conducted by the experts of the Commission after formality examination through the online recommendation system, and each expert is required to select 30 short-listed items; the scientific and technological achievements will then be ranked by the Secretariat of the Commission according to the initial selection results of each expert; that is, the short-listed innovative technologies (within 30 items) in the first round will be selected according to the ranking of scientific and technological achievements.

Supplementary materials: the application materials of the short-listed cutting-edge technologies in the first round will be supplemented and improved, according to the selection criteria, by the recommenders (experts or research units) and then submitted to the Secretariat.

Final evaluation: a final evaluation will be conducted by the Commission through the online system, and the “Cutting-edge Technologies for 2018 Global New Energy Vehicles” will be selected according to the quantitative indicators and application materials of the short-listed technologies.

(2) Innovative Technologies for Global New Energy Vehicles

1. Selection criteria

Innovation, which means a new technology created by innovation or an important improvement made on the basis of existing technology, and which has achieved a major breakthrough.

Leading feature, which means that it is an obvious improvement and has unique creative features when compared to the level of the existing technology in the same field.

Importance, which means that it can break through the technical difficulties and bottlenecks in the core areas of new energy vehicles, and has an important promotional and driving effect on technological and industrial progress.

Potential, which means that it can be widely used in new energy vehicles, as well as parts and components, and that it is feasible to be further promoted and applied.

2. Selection process

Achievement collection: foreigners enjoy the same application right as their Chinese counterparts; the same unit (including research institutes, colleges or universities, and enterprises) can only apply one item; the Commission will cooperate with 1 or 2 authoritative news media which can recommend relevant items according to the reliability and page views of articles on new energy vehicle science and technology; experts of the Commission can recommend 2 or 3 items in the same field;

Formality examination: a conformity review of recommended materials will be conducted by the secretariat of the Commission;

Initial evaluation: the initial evaluation will be conducted by the experts of the Commission after formality examination through the online recommendation system, and each expert is required to select 30 short-listed items; the scientific and technological achievements will then be ranked by the Secretariat of the Commission according to the initial selection results of each expert; that is, the short-listed innovative technologies (within 30 items) in the first round will be selected according to the ranking of scientific and technological achievements.

On-site inspection or defense: according to the situation, on-site inspections of the short-listed technologies will be conducted or the application units will be invited to have an oral defense by the experts of the Commission.

Final evaluation: a final evaluation will be conducted by the Commission through the online system, and the “Innovative Technologies for Global New Energy Vehicles” will be selected according to the selection criteria.
