Institute of Chinese Studies wins the Overseas Impactful Award for Sinology
The Institute of Chinese Studies has won the Overseas Impactful Award for Sinology in the "Tribute to Sinology: The 3rd Sinology Ceremony for Global Chinese", hosted jointly by Yuelu Academy and three other institutions. The award has recognized the Institute which pulled its weight in the past half century in the promotion of traditional Chinese culture and academic exchanges with overseas institutions. This enables scholars to be exposed to the most cutting-edge research methods and academic ideas and to share the Chinese tradition and intellectual wisdom with their overseas counterparts.
Over the years winners of the "Overseas Impactful Award for Sinology have been premier masters and cultural institutions such as Professor Jao Tsung-I, Master Hsing Yun, Confucius Institute, and International Confucian Association. After undergoing numerous and rigorous reviews, which include nomination, preliminary evaluation, online voting, and the final evaluation, the Institute of Chinese Studies has become the first Hong Kong institution to be awarded such a prestigious prize in sinology.

Achievement in Energy Conservation Incentive Scheme
The University implemented the Energy Conservation Incentive Scheme (ECIS) on 20 selected buildings in two phases from January 2014. At the end of the second phase of the ECIS, the Group A buildings (including ICS) have collectively reduced about 10,000,000 kWh, achieving the 8% reduction target.  It is delighted to learn that ICS is awarded a certificate of recognition for the continuous commitment and contribution in energy conservation. Thanks to all our colleagues' concerted effect, ICS is being an active part in the University in saving energy.
