CAS AMSS-PolyU Joint Laboratory of Applied Mathematics Achieves Grade A in the Sixth RGC-CAS Joint Laboratories Evaluation

6 Apr 2024


The CAS AMSS-PolyU Joint Laboratory of Applied Mathematics has been distinguished with a Grade “A” rating in the sixth RGC-CAS evaluation exercise of joint laboratories, an announcement made on 3 April 2024.


The evaluation was conducted by the Research Grants Council (RGC) and the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), assessing 30 joint laboratories formed between six UGC-funded universities in Hong Kong and CAS.  Out of these, 22 joint laboratories have successfully met the accreditation criteria, with 4 achieving Grade “A”, 7 receiving Grade “B”, and 11 being recognized with Grade “P” (Passed). 


The RGC and CAS have committed to providing five-year funding support to the laboratories awarded Grade “A” and Grade “B”, as well as to the top 3 newly accredited laboratories. This initiative aims to motivate participation in the assessment and to enhance collaboration between the two entities. Specially, each Grade “A” awarded joint laboratory will receive up to RMB 6 million plus HK$3.75 million in funding.  


In additional to the five-year funding support for the 11 awarded joint laboratories, the RGC and CAS are also launching a seed funding scheme for young researchers (青年科研人員種子基金). This scheme is designed to foster the development of exchanges and cooperation among promising young scientists under the age of 45 within the joint laboratories, further bolstering the collective efforts between the two sides.
