University-industry collaboration to advance food safety
PolyU and Bright Food International Limited (Bright Food) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) earlier with a view to pooling their strengths and resources in advancing food safety.
Under the MoU, the two parties will collaborate on food safety research as well as the transfer and commercialisation of technologies, through the establishment of a joint research laboratory. The laboratory will focus on the development and testing of innovative agricultural and food technologies, with at least five promising international projects to be selected each year for further development, incubation and application. The two parties are also planning to build a joint food safety and innovation technology training centre to nurture young talents for food-related industries.
