Renmin University of China has opened a research center, aimed at solving problems pragmatically.

"In this modern society, not a single problem can be solved individually. Thus, an interdisciplinary research center is necessary to solve problems pragmatically," said Cheng Tianquan, director of the Institute for Public Governance, and the university's Party chief.

The institute will provide research foundation and policy guidance to solve social problems.

Zhang Jianming, an official with the Beijing municipal government, hopes the institute will help the capital to solve various problems.

Cheng said the university has advantages in social sciences. "During the 2012 evaluation from the Ministry of Education, nine majors from Renmin University, including law and politics, ranked at the top of the list," he said.

More than 40 professors and researchers gathered at the university to discuss public management in China.
