State Key Laboratory of Geohazard Prevention and Geoenvironment Protection (SKLGP)
The State Key Laboratory of Geohazard Prevention and Geoenvironment Protection (SKLGP) is located in Chengdu, Sichuan Province, Southwest China. With dozens of years of history, in 1989 it was approved as a state professional laboratory by the State Development Planning Commission and the State Education Commission, established for the state key discipline “Geological Engineering” in Chengdu University of Technology (originally Chengdu College of Geology). It was recognized as the Key Laboratory of Sichuan Province by the local government in 2001. And one year later, it was developed as the State Key Laboratory Base, which was under the joint construction of Ministry of Science and Technology and Sichuan Province. In 2003, it became Key Laboratory of the Ministry of Land and Resources. Upgraded to a State Key Laboratory by the Ministry of Science and Technology in 2007, SKLGP now is an exclusive laboratory in the field of geohazard prevention in China. The present director of SKLGP academic committee is Academician Wang Sijing from Chinese Academy of Engineering, and Professor Huang Runqiu is in charge of the laboratory.

Collaborative Innovation Center of Geohazards Prevention (CICGP)
The Collaborative Innovation Center of Geohazards Prevention (CICGP) was established by Chengdu University of Technology (lead), China University of Geosciences (Wuhan), Chang An University, Tong Ji University, the Ministry of Water of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Chengdu Mountain Disaster and Environmental Research Institute and the Institute of Mechanics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, as well as the China Geological Survey Bureau and China Hydroelectric Engineering Consulting Group. After the establishment of the center, taking the unique regional geological environment condition as the background, taking the national key discipline of geology engineering as the core, taking the cooperation innovation mechanism and the system reform as the forerunner, taking the theory and the technological innovation as the guide, facing the national demand of the major geologic disaster prevention and the major project construction through the organic combination of interdisciplinary and infiltration of "administration and production", constructed a new mechanism and new mode of collaborative innovation in the field of geological disaster prevention and control. Created a knowledge and technological innovation system in this field, and gathered and cultivated a group of top-notch creative talents. Obtained a number of significant landmark results and solved a number of key engineering construction problems in the prevention of major geological hazards. CICGP made a substantial contribution to the construction for the national innovation system.
