The delegates were warmly received by Prof. Benjamin Wah, Acting Vice-Chancellor; Prof. Joseph Sung, Vice-Chancellor-Designate; Prof. Henry Wong, Pro-Vice-Chancellor; Prof. Michael Hui, Pro-Vice-Chancellor and Prof. Xu Yangsheng, Associate-Pro-Vice-Chancellor. The delegation met with representatives from Faculty of Engineering and Faculty of Science, and visited laboratories in the Faculty of Engineering and relevant research centers, learning more about the latest research development of CUHK in science and technology. The representatives from both sides used the opportunity to exchange ideas and build up links.
On 4 February, the academicians delivered public lectures for the Lecture Series by Academicians. They shared their expertise and views of myriad fields covering systems science, quantum information, infrared physics and computer science. The lectures attracted more than 100 people including staff and students from the university community and attendees from the general public.
CUHK launched the "CAS Academicians Visit Programme" since 2008. Under this programme, 5-6 CAS academicians are invited to visit CUHK each year and deliver public lectures in the "Lecture Series by Academicians" to forge academic exchange between the University and CAS. It is hoped that through this project, CUHK can establish closer links with CAS Academicians to further enhance the University's quality of research output.
