Organization/Company: Since its foundation in 1898, Peking University has played a central role in China's modern history. Born as the first comprehensive institute for higher education in the country during the Hundred Days of the Reformation of Emperor Guangxu, he educated many of China's leading scientific, literary and political figures, including famous writers such as Lu Xun and Shen Congwen, as well as Nobel prize-winning scientists Tsung-Dao Lee and Tu Youyou. In the tumultuous years following the fall of the Qing dynasty, the university was a hotbed of intellectual activity in the new Chinese republic. The students and the faculty of Peking University were the main participants in the radical Movement of May 4 in 1919, an important intellectual and cultural development that has always shaped Chinese society and politics. Peking University has continued to play a key role in China's modernization and has been at the forefront of all the country's major intellectual movements.
