Short welcome note (Issue 8)

Welcome Note

While HKU has a long tradition of serving the community, Knowledge Exchange (KE) was formally recognized as the third mission of the University in 2009, alongside Teaching and Research. In this issue, Professor John Bacon-Shone, Associate Director of the Knowledge Exchange Office, looks at the KE landscape that has since become a "natural" part of the University's core activities.  

In this issue there are also interesting stories on entrepreneurship – both by our students and academics. They are excellent examples of creativity and passion to serve society, which we want to nurture in every HKU student.
