Celebrating Knowledge Exchange Achievements

Celebrating Knowledge Exchange Achievements

The Knowledge Exchange (KE) Awards 2012 were presented at the Award Presentation Ceremony for Excellence in Teaching, Research and Knowledge Exchange 2012, which was held on March 27, 2013 in Loke Yew Hall.

From this year onward, this annual ceremony honours and celebrates the outstanding achievements of our distinguished colleagues not only in teaching and research, but also in KE.

Eleven KE Awards were presented, including ten Faculty KE Awards and one for non-Faculty unit.

The Faculty KE Awards were introduced in 2011 in order to recognize each Faculty's outstanding KE accomplishment that has made demonstrable economic, social or cultural impacts to benefit the community, business/industry, or partner organizations. The KE Award (Non-Faculty Unit) was introduced in 2012 for the independent centres, institutes and units of the University.

Pro-Chancellor, Dr the Honourable David Li Kwok-po, was the Guest of Honour at the Ceremony.

A summary of the awardees and their achievements is in the Award Ceremony Programme Book. Their success stories were featured in Issue 3 of this newsletter.
