The Forum on Mainland-Hong Kong Cooperation in Innovation and Technology was held on 15  May by the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) Government at the Central Government Office. Prof. Rocky Tuan, Vice-Chancellor of The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK), joined the Forum with CUHK members including Prof. Fanny Cheung, Pro-Vice-Chancellor; Prof. Joseph Sung and Prof. Yu Jun, Director and Deputy Director of State Key Laboratory of Digestive Disease (Partner Laboratory in CUHK); Prof. Lam Hon Ming, Director of State Key Laboratory of Agrobiotechnology (Partner Laboratory in CUHK); Prof. Leung Ping Chung, Director of State Key Laboratory of Phytochemistry and Plant Resources in West China (Partner Laboratory in CUHK); Prof. Qin Ling, Director of Musculoskeletal Research Laboratory; Prof. Lin Hui, Director of Institute of Space and Earth Information Science; Prof. Chen Yongqin, Professor of Department of Geography and Resource Management; Prof. Jiang Peiyong, Assistant Professor of State Key Laboratory of Oncology in South China (Partner Laboratory in CUHK) and Dr. Lee Chi Ming, Director of Research and Knowledge Transfer Services.


Over 100 representatives from the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Chinese Academy of Engineering along with local officials and technology executives participated in the event. The forum announced the new policies of science and technology funding by the Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) and the Ministry of Finance for Hong Kong higher education institutions and research institutions. Discussions were held on the new opportunities brought about by the new funding policy.


CUHK has always adopted a liberal policy on research undertakings that allow breadth and depth. Its research activities cover dimensions laterally to encompass all subjects that are offered at CUHK, vertically to integrate staff research with teaching, and longitudinally to range from upstream research to midstream development.  The new measures will benefit the scientific research development of the University, fostering scientific collaboration between research teams from Hong Kong and mainland China.
