PolyU receives the lion's share of fellows in 2021 Hong Kong Scholars Program
In the 2021 Hong Kong Scholars Program, PolyU has admitted 22 outstanding postdoctoral fellows selected from leading universities in Mainland China. This number represents the largest share of the year’s cohort of 52 postdoctoral fellows among the eight government-funded universities in Hong Kong.
The programme is a cross-border initiative to nurture postdoctoral fellows to conduct high-level research work, particularly in experimental science and engineering disciplines. It helps cultivate research talent who will contribute to the development of innovation and technology in society. The programme is supported by the Society of Hong Kong Scholars and Mainland authorities, including the Liaison Office of the Central People's Government in the HKSAR.
The postdoctoral fellows admitted to PolyU will come to Hong Kong by February 2022, and take part in two-year research projects under the guidance of PolyU academics. The research projects cover about 15 subject areas, including chemistry, civil engineering, computing science, information and communication engineering, materials science and engineering, medical technology, and textiles.
