To Facilitate Innovation & Research Collaboration with Mainland in 2017 China (Dongguan) International Science and Technology Cooperation Week

Date:08 - 10 Dec 2017

From December 8 to December 10, 2017, Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) took part in the 2017 China (Dongguan) International Science & Technology Cooperation Week and Science & Research Institution Innovation Achievements Fair, which are jointly sponsored by the Ministry of Science and Technology, the Guangdong Provincial Government and the Chinese Academy of Science. The theme for this year's cooperation week is "Science and Technology Cooperation, Industry-Research Link-up, and Building a Bright Future", hoping to strive to create a large-scale, high-level and effective international exchange platform for science and technology exchanges and cooperation.

PolyU has always carried out its mission in promoting the application of scientific research. It not only actively participates in the research related to national development but also hopes to cooperate with the mainland industries so that invention can benefit the community as a whole. The latest research achievements was dedicatedly showcased in the Hong Kong Science and Technology Exhibition pavilion, with focus in various fields such as nanomaterials, sustainable energy and rehabilitation sciences, with which three projects won the “Global Innovation Award” in the  TechConnect World Innovation Conferences and Expo.  PolyU will facilitate to strengthen collaboration with Pearl River Delta Great Bay Area industry through this platform.  Furthermore, PolyU also demonstrated the achievements made by current State Key Laboratories (SKL) of Chirosciences and Ultra-precision Machining, as well as National Engineering Centers (CNERC) for Rail Transit Electrification and Automation and Steel Structure.

During the exhibition, many industrial partners and researchers expressed their interest in PolyU’s “Sustainable Water-water Derived Energy Generation System” and “Multi-functional Transparent Nano-Coating for Glass” projects.  PolyU, through this cooperation platform, has explored various research cooperation opportunities with governmental partners, industrial stakeholders and academia.
