Awards and Achievements

In the 2023 Hong Kong Scholars Program, 60 high-quality postdoctoral fellows were selected from leading universities in Mainland China. The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) has admitted 20 of them, representing the largest share of recruitment among the participating Hong Kong universities in the programme. PolyU has been the top choice for fellows for the thirteenth consecutive year since the programme’s inception in 2011.

This program is jointly launched by the Society of Hong Kong Scholars and the China National Postdoctoral Council under the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security. Its objective is to  effectively consolidate the talent and research resources of Hong Kong and the Mainland in order to train outstanding postdoctoral fellows, particularly in experimental science and engineering disciplines. The selected fellows are required to be present in Hong Kong on or before 28 February 2024 to commence their research work with their supervisors.

20 academics of PolyU will serve as supervisors to nurture the selected fellows throughout a  twoyear period, facilitating their high-level research endeavors. The research projects cover various areas, including applied mathematics, physics, biomedical engineering, industrial and systems engineering, electrical and electronic engineering, mechanical engineering, building and real estate, civil and environmental engineering, fashion and textiles, etc.
