Clarivate Analytics, the Chinese Academy of Engineering and the Higher Education Press of China release annual joint report to identify 100+ Engineering Fronts

Highlighting 93 engineering research areas and 94 engineering development specialties in nine fields

London, UK and Beijing, China, December 10, 2019 - Clarivate Analytics plc (NYSE: CCC; CCC.WS), a global leader in providing trusted insights and analytics to accelerate the pace of innovation, the Chinese Academy of Engineering, and the Higher Education Press of China today released their joint report 'Engineering Fronts 2019 ' to identify the hottest areas in engineering research and development. This is the third annual collaborative report between the three organizations, launched at today's joint forum held at the Chinese Academy of Engineering in Beijing.

The 2019 report identifies 93 global engineering research fronts and 94 engineering development fronts spanning nine fields of research, aligned with the nine academic divisions under the Chinese Academy of Engineering. The nine fields include mechanical and vehicle engineering; information and electronic engineering; chemical, metallurgical, and materials engineering; energy and mining engineering; civil, hydraulic, and architectural engineering; environmental and light textile engineering; agriculture; medicine and health; and engineering management.

In the report a front is defined as a main direction which should be followed for the development of future engineering technology. The engineering research fronts are identified based on citation data from the Web of Science Core Collection as well as nomination by experts. The engineering development fronts are identified based on the global patent information found in the Derwent Innovation database, as well as nomination by experts or patent analysis by patent industry peers.

'We are honored to again collaborate with the Chinese Academy of Engineering and the Higher Education Press of China to issue our third Engineering Fronts report, which provides strategic guidelines for the future development of global engineering science and technology,' said Mukhtar Ahmed, President of Science Group, Clarivate Analytics. 'Our vision at Clarivate is to improve the way the world creates, protects and advances innovation. We are committed to continuing to strengthen our collaboration with China's academia, research and development network and policy makers to accelerate the pace of research.'

Professor Wang Chen, Vice President of the Chinese Academy of Engineering said: 'By utilizing our advanced knowledge in multi-discipline and cross-field research, the Chinese Academy of Engineering tasked our academicians and experts to forecast the global engineering research and development fronts. We aim to bolster the development of engineering science and industrial innovation and provide actionable references to enable researchers to better respond to our global challenges and to achieve sustainable positive development for humankind.'
