The delegates were warmly received by CUHK officers including Prof. Joseph Sung, Vice-Chancellor; Prof. Jack Cheng and Prof. Henry Wong, Pro-Vice-Chancellors; Prof. Ng Cheuk-yiu, Dean of Faculty of Science and relevant faculty members. They also visited the Faculty of Science and toured some research facilities where they were given brief summaries on the latest research development of the University. Representatives from CUHK and CAS took the opportunity to exchange ideas and explore possibilities for further collaboration.

 

On 22-23 February, the six academicians delivered public lectures in the 'Lecture Series by Academicians'. They shared their expertise and views of myriad fields covering Theoretical Physics, Organic Chemistry, Physical Chemistry and Control of Organic Pollutants. More than two hundred people including academics, researchers and students from CUHK and other universities as well as members from the general public were attracted to join the lectures.

 

CAS Academicians Visit Programme was launched by the University in 2008 to promote academic exchange with CAS. Under this programme, 5-6 CAS academicians are invited to visit CUHK and deliver public lectures for the 'Lecture Series by Academicians' each year.
