PolyU and China Resources collaborate on carbon neutral new materials research
World-class research centre with NVIDIA and more to drive innovation in culture, art-tech, and interactive media
Significant research funding secured to advance sustainable development and mental healthcare in Hong Kong
In a significant step towards fostering collaboration on sustainability and green technology, PolyU and China Resources (CR) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on research collaboration in carbon neutrality and sustainability-driven projects, talent development and startup projects, together with a framework agreement to drive the establishment of the CR-PolyU Joint Research Institute for Carbon Neutral New Materials.
This collaboration will leverage the respective strengths of both organisations, including China Resources’ extensive expertise in various sectors such as sustainability and technology, and PolyU’s research excellence in science and engineering, fashion and textiles, and carbon neutrality. In addition, the two parties will provide more external opportunities for PolyU graduate students to exchange and collaborate, while China Resources will provide incubation support for PolyU startups. These factors will help Hong Kong become an international I&T hub in the Greater Bay Area.
