Four scientists at PolyU have been awarded funding from China's Excellent Young Scientists Fund 2020. The fund supports young scientists who have made signiﬁcant contributions in fundamental research, helping them become leading international scholars in their ﬁeld. Each scientist will receive RMB1.2 million to support their work in Hong Kong over a three-year period.
Under the National Natural Science Foundation of China, the Fund was extended to young scientists, deﬁned as men aged below 38 and women aged below 40, in Hong Kong and Macau at eight designated universities in 2019. A total of 25 young scholars from Hong Kong and Macau are awarded funding annually.

It is encouraging to see young scientists from PolyU supported by the Nation to further develop their research. The provision of the Fund not only reﬂects the Nation’s support of Hong Kong’s scientiﬁc research, but also encourages young local scientists to pursue excellence in both basic research and research in cutting-edge technologies.
