Posted: July-20-2016Adjust font size:

BEIJING, July 19 (Xinhua) -- China's top legislature is organizing nationwide inspections to check the enforcement of a law giving academics and inventors incentives to commercially exploit their work, a year after the law was revised.

Five teams of senior lawmakers will be dispatched to five provincial-level regions of Beijing, Zhejiang, Hunan, Guangdong and Guizhou in July and August, according to a statement issued by the National People's Congress (NPC) Standing Committee on Tuesday.

Local lawmakers in eight other provincial localities will manage their own inspections.

Inspectors will review policies and measures adopted by local authorities in empowering enterprises and incentivizing universities and research institutions to commercialize scientific and technological achievements, and in providing related public services.

Lawmakers will also inspect execution of the law in terms of the uses of scientific and technological achievements, yield management and the reward given to individuals.

The inspection teams will produce a report on the implementation of the law and submit it to the NPC Standing Committee in October.
