Creating impact on society through innovative research

12 December 2019


Research excellence is one of HKBU’s strategic priorities as set out in its Strategic Plan 2018-2028. The University strives to produce research on three selected clusters, namely Creative Media and Practice, Health and Drug Discovery, and Data Analytics and Artificial Intelligence, working closely with external stakeholders to address community needs and improve people’s lives.

The staunch support of our donors and the dedication of our researchers have enabled HKBU to create impactful research. A number of significant breakthroughs have also been made in recent years and gained international recognition. It is sincerely hoped that members of all sectors of our society will provide continued support for HKBU, making it an influential research-led liberal arts university for the world.

“HKBU is a research-led liberal arts university. We place strong emphasis on the importance of collaboration, inter-disciplinarity and innovation. In pursing our goal of enhancing research performance, we are making concerted efforts to recruit prominent scholars worldwide, to cultivate actively the niche research areas identified, and to strengthen the research environment. The generous contributions from the community enable the University to allocate more resources to attract faculty and research talents from across the world and further excel in our research performance."
