Knowledge Exchange Impact Projects

The Knowledge Exchange (KE) Funding Scheme for Impact Projects aims to support staff members to undertake KE projects that have the potential to create impact on society.  Applications are normally invited once a year.  The maximum bid for each project is HK$100,000, and proposals are considered on a competitive basis.  Proposed KE projects may be technology-based or non-technology-related.

Joint proposals for interdisciplinary, collaborative KE projects among Faculties or between Faculties and non-Faculty-based units are strongly encouraged. Staff members are also strongly encouraged to explore external partnership opportunities and develop their proposals with external partners before submission.

If your organization is interested in exploring collaborative opportunities with our staff members in a KE Impact Project, please contact the respective Faculties as listed below or the Knowledge Exchange Office.

Strategic Partnerships

Strategic partnerships must be aligned with the University's Strategic Development Plan.  A strategic partnership may be discipline based that involves a Faculty, or broad based that involves several Faculties.  A strategic partnership is expected to enable both sides to achieve clearly identified benefits beyond what each party could achieve on its own in order to pursue common goals.  Considerable efforts are normally required to map out a shared vision, a detailed plan for collaboration, agreed outcomes, governance structure, monitoring mechanism and review process, etc.

If your organization is interested in exploring opportunities to build a strategic partnership with one of our Faculties or the University, please contact the respective offices below.
