As we enter the post-pandemic era, I am pleased to see The Hong Kong Polytechnic University excelling on various fronts.

PolyU triumphed at the 48th Geneva Inventions Expo by winning a record-breaking 31 accolades, including the highest number of Special/Grand Prizes among Hong Kong delegations. Our success reflects our unwavering commitment to impactful innovation.

We recently held an Appreciation Dinner to recognise the remarkable achievements of our staff in various aspects, including education, research, knowledge transfer, and services. Their dedication has driven the University’s progress.

We are also proud of our students’ accomplishments. We recently held the Presentation Ceremony for the Outstanding Student Award and the Presidential Student Leadership Award to honour our outstanding students, who have excelled in both academic and extra-curricular pursuits, while the STARS Residential College hosted a talent show highlighting our students’ extraordinary talents.

Furthermore, we have been forging collaborations with partners locally, in the Mainland, and overseas. One example is our partnership with Hai Robotics, a successful unicorn company founded by two PolyU graduates, in the operation of a new state-of-the-art AI and Robotics Lab at our Industrial Centre. With society’s return to normalcy, we anticipate more opportunities to collaborate with partners worldwide.

Moving forward, we will continue to embrace the spirit of innovation and collaboration to pursue excellence and make meaningful contributions to society.
