KE Excellence Award and HKU Innovator Award 2021
The university-level KE Excellence Award was introduced in 2015-16 to recognise outstanding KE accomplishment that has made significant economic, social, environmental or cultural impacts to benefit the society.
Recognising innovations is equally important to spur sharing of innovations with the broader community. Introduced in 2020-21, the HKU Innovator Award aims to recognise outstanding Faculty members whose innovations demonstrate exceptionally high potential impact (legacy or projected legacy) with transformative results to foster development.
The recipients for these awards this year are as follows:
KE Excellence Award 2021
Dr Duangporn Duangthip and team members – Professor Chun Hung Chu, Professor Edward Chin Man Lo, and Professor Cynthia Kar Yung Yiu, Faculty of Dentistry
'Promoting Child Oral Health and Managing Tooth Decay in Preschool Children'
HKU Innovator Award 2021

The KE Excellence Award and HKU Innovator Award 2021 will be presented at the HKU Excellence Awards Presentation Ceremony in March 2022.
