New Futian institute boosts PolyU’s impact in GBA
PolyU is launching a new research institute in Futian to leverage the opportunities offered by the Greater Bay Area (GBA) development. The PolyU-Shenzhen Technology and Innovation Research Institute (Futian) will run research projects supported by the Shenzhen-Hong Kong Science and Technology Innovation Cooperation Zone (Pilot Scheme). The Institute will add impetus to the impactful research produced by PolyU.
The first project under the Pilot Scheme will be led by Professor John Shi, Head of Department of Land Surveying and Geo-Informatics, and will investigate “Theories of Geo-Artificial Intelligence and Reliable Spatial Data Analytics”. This project, which benefits from a start-up grant and rent-free office from the Futian Government, will contribute to smart city development in Hong Kong and GBA cities, as well as other cities in Mainland China and around the world.
