A total of 18 enterprises in Baotou, North China's Inner Mongolia autonomous region have been approved as municipal level industrial design centers by the city's bureau of industry and information technology, in a move to promote the development of the industrial design industry and the adjustment of industrial structure.
The 18 municipal industrial design centers include enterprises such as Baotou Beiben Trucks Bridge Box Co, Inner Mongolia King Deer Cashmere Co and Inner Mongolia University of Science & Technology.
Industrial design relies mainly on industrial products, and uses scientific and technological achievements and knowledge of engineering, aesthetics, psychology, and economics, to integrate and optimize the function, structure, form, packaging, and production technology and process of products.
Next, the Baotou bureau of industry and information technology will select and recommend industrial design center enterprises to apply for classification as autonomous region-level and national-level industrial design centers.
At the same time, the bureau will provide further support and assistance to enterprises in terms of broadening credit financing channels, strengthening the cultivation of industrial design talent, and strengthening intellectual property protection.
