WE have invited over 80 top speakers from around the world in the past 8 years, including Nobel laureates, Turin Award and other top academic awards winners. WE pay close attention to artificial intelligence, life science, astronomy, deep sea exploration and other scientific and technological frontiers.
An annual global science event hosted by Tencent, the Tencent WE Summit was established in 2013. Every year, we are joined by leading lights from international science community to share their latest works and ideas. In 2017, Tencent and Springer Nature, a world’s leading publisher of most influential science journals, embarked on a strategic partnership to co-organize the Conference.
Over the past 7 years, more than 70 scientists and people from the circle of science had graced our events as guest speakers, such as cosmologist Stephen Hawking, gravitational wave discoverer Barry Barish, Nobel Prize laureate Kip Thorne, CAR T-cell therapy pioneer Carl June, Turing Award winner Andrew Chi-Chih Yao and Tencent Founder Pony Ma, to name a few. And topics range from cosmology to theoretical physics, life science, space exploration and Internet technology et cetera.
The first Tencent Science Week was launched in 2019. As a response to government’s call for “Science and Technology Innovation” and an effort to execute its corporate social responsibility and mission of Tech for Good, Tencent, together with Tencent Foundation, organize a series of science events every November. The coming Tencent Science Week 2020 will feature four mega events, including Tencent WE Summit, Tencent ME Summit, awarding ceremony of Xplorer Prize and X-Talk. Taking advantage of Tencent’s power of platform and technology, Tencent Science Week will work with scientists, medical experts, science popularizers and cross-sector scholars to promote knowledge and spirit of science and motivate the public to approach science, helping build a favorable atmosphere of science. With Tencent Science Week, we hope to highlight scientists with a close-up shot, making science a new trend and supporting the development of basic science and cutting-edge technologies.
