The University recently received a generous donation of HK$1 million from Bonroy Investment Limited in support of the newly established six interdisciplinary research laboratories. These laboratories will foster close engagement between the sciences, arts and social sciences, thereby enabling researchers at HKBU to make new discoveries.  

Mr. Mai, Director of the Bonroy Investment Limited, is a staunch supporter of the University and became Honorary President of the HKBU Foundation in 2019. He is particularly supportive of the School of Business and has established an Outgoing Exchange Scholarship for BBA students. He has also sponsored a service-learning programme in which HKBU students serve the local children in Myanmar through music.  

The six interdisciplinary research laboratories are the Augmented Creativity Laboratory, Computational Medicine Laboratory, System Health Laboratory, Smart Society Laboratory, Data Economy Laboratory, and Ethical and Theoretical AI Laboratory. These laboratories will apply advanced technologies such as big data and artificial intelligence to address frontier research issues.
