Thirty-nine PolyU research projects granted the NSFC’s Young Scientists Fund 2022
Thirty-nine research projects led by young researchers at PolyU have been recognised by the National Natural Science Foundation of China’s (NSFC) Young Scientists Fund 2022! It is the first time the fund has been expanded to allow researchers and universities in Hong Kong to apply, and PolyU is ranked as the top grant recipient among local universities in terms of the number of projects awarded.
The awarded research projects cover a wide spectrum of topics including environmental protection, green living environment, climate change, construction technology, and innovation in AI-assisted medical devices, fostering a better future for our changing living environment. Each of these impactful research projects will be granted funding of RMB 300,000 to support basic research work for three years.
Professor Christina Wong, Director of Research and Innovation at PolyU, expressed her thanks to the NSFC and said, “With top-notch scholars and experts, PolyU is dedicated to conducting impactful research in interdisciplinary fields, making positive contributions to Hong Kong and the Nation’s technology and socioeconomic advancement.”
With the aim of cultivating research talent, the Young Scientists Fund supports young researchers to freely choose their research topics within the funding scope of the NSFC and conduct basic research, during which they can develop creative thinking and the ability to independently undertake research projects.
