This event will provide an excellent opportunity for stakeholders of PolyU and the wider community to gain a good understanding of PolyU’s contributions to the development of I&T in Hong Kong, the Nation and beyond. In collaboration with partners, PolyU will continue to leverage its world-class research and education capabilities to create innovative technologies and nurture leading talents to support the development of Hong Kong and the GBA into an international I&T hub as well as the development of science and technology in our Nation.”
