Short welcome note (Issue 5)

Welcome Note

Let me extend a warm welcome to you all at the start of the 2013-14 academic year. I have much pleasure in sharing with you a few success stories of the colleagues who received the Faculty Knowledge Exchange Awards 2013. You will see that those success stories illustrate how the University's excellent research or teaching and learning could bring impact on society.

This issue is not only about awardees but also about how we nurture awardees. The story on the research postgraduate (RPg) student supervisor and his team in supporting his MPhil student to participate in the Three Minute Thesis Competition is of interest to not only our RPg supervisors but also everyone who cares about research education in the broadest sense.
