After three challenging years of the pandemic, society is finally returning to normal with the removal of most pandemic-related travel restrictions. This will provide our University with many more opportunities to strengthen our collaboration with partners in the Mainland and across the globe, further enhancing our position as a leading international university. Indeed, PolyU attained an encouraging result in the newly released Times Higher Education World’s Most International Universities 2023 list, ranking sixth globally.
Furthermore, Hong Kong’s development into an international innovation and technology (I&T) hub is progressing to the next level thanks to the policies published in the new ‘Hong Kong Innovation and Technology Development Blueprint’. As an innovative world-class university that excels in interdisciplinary research and STEM disciplines, PolyU strives to help propel Hong Kong’s I&T advancement as well as the scientific and technological development of our Nation.
As we look to the future, we can also reflect on 2022 as a pivotal moment for PolyU, as it marked our 85th Anniversary. PolyU has been evolving alongside society and contributing to its development over the decades. Based on our rich 85-year heritage and commitment to excellence in education and research, we will continue unwaveringly on our journey of fully realising PolyU’s potential as a leading tertiary institution that makes a positive impact on Hong Kong, the Nation and the world.
