PolyU wins Central Government's recognition for State Key Laboratory

PolyU has a long-established innovative research culture. Our innovations are meant to meet the practical needs of our community, our country and the world. We have established various research centers, including State Key Laboratory of Ultraprecision Machining Technology and State Key Laboratory of Chirosciences. One of our core approaches is to build network with international research and development communities to enhance collaboration opportunities.
(1) Establishment of State Key Laboratory of Ultraprecision Machining Technology
The Laboratory is the partner laboratory with the State Key Laboratory of Precision Measurement Technology and Instruments in Tianjin University and Tsinghua University. Its objective to undertake research into ultraprecision machining technologies and nano-surface metrology so as to enhance the capability of Hong Kong and Mainland China in design, fabrication and measurement of advanced optics and critical precision components.
(2) Development of International Research Centre for Communication in Healthcare
The Research Centre is jointly established by PolyU and University of Technology Sydney. It serves as a research centre for international development by bringing together internationally renowned scholars, researchers, nurses, doctors and teachers. It provides a unique and dynamic site for members to share and collaborate on existing and future health communication research, international and local health policy and health education curricula development.
Our research centre keeps pace with international development. Putting our eyes on the international development, our research centre joins hands with overseas corporations and institutions to develop the cutting-edge technology to meet the industrial and societal needs through active technology transfer.
