Campus Sustainability Fund is established by the Office of the Provost in 2012 to support education projects that can make a contribution to promote sustainability. Projects should seek to transform processes and / or engage the campus community with a view to changing attitudes and behaviours that will result in a long-term impact on campus sustainability outcomes. The outputs of projects might include reports, artistic works, multi-media materials and demonstration structures, as well as other forms as appropriate.
Strategic research is defined as "Work leading to the advancement of knowledge which in general has important utilizable consequences in the context of Hong Kong and beyond". Applications are invited in summer every year, with the submission deadline being early November. An announcement and call for applications will be made by the Research Grants and Contracts Office. Grants will be awarded after the University's research committee meeting in March of the following year.
