Research projects are generally conducted in four phases, i.e. project approval, project implementation, results assessment and achievements transformation.
In the project approval stage, projects are assessed in regard to the market demands, technological feasibility, production feasibility and other factors. After the project has been approved, project tasks and sub-tasks are identified according to specific technical requirements.
In the project implementation stage, the R & D tasks and sub-projects are assigned to related R&D departments.
In the project evaluation stage, achievements of the project will be evaluated comprehensively. Scientific results, including patents, software and hardware are accessed in regard to project results and initial requirements.
In the application promotion stage, the achievements are integrated into the system and adopted into products and clinical practice.
