Six RS faculty members succeed in obtaining allocations from RGC GRF 2021/22

Six RS faculty members succeed in obtaining allocations from RGC GRF 2021/22

Over the years, academics and researchers at RS have spared no effort in achieving excellence in research in related disciplines. To support their impactful and translational research, they have made strenuous efforts to secure internal funding at the department, faculty and university levels as well as acquire external funding support such as that from the RGC General Research Fund (GRF), the RGC Early Career Scheme (ECS), and the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC).

This year RS has done very well in the highly competitive RGC GRF 2021/22 exercise. Out of the sixteen applications we submitted, six are funded, reflecting a success rate of 37.5%. This is the highest success rate among all of the five schools/departments in the Faculty of Health and Social Sciences.

Congratulations to the six faculty members who have made a successful GRF application this year (please refer to the table below for more details). We are also grateful to all the colleagues who have rendered assistance in the process. Let us keep up the good work and achieve even better results next year.
