Industrial Liaison

Through publicity campaigns such as organizing press conferences, setting up websites, and participation in fairs and exhibitions, the KTO has raised the profile of the University, focusing the public's attention on its advanced technologies and know-how.

Set up in 1993, the CityU Business & Industrial Club (CUBIC) has played a pivotal role in forging ties between the University, the business sector and industry. To address the diverse needs of its members, CUBIC regularly organizes two series of forums, namely the Emerging Technologies Forums, where cutting-edge technologies are introduced to both academia and industry, and the Technology Transfer Forums, where mature technologies developed by the University are showcased. In addition, the Club runs five Special Interest Groups for its members, covering areas that range from consumer electronics, information technology and telecommunications to manufacturing and life science. On top of the above, CUBIC also organizes Happy Hour Gatherings where members of academia and industry can exchange views and socialize in a casual setting.

The KTO maintains three online databases, namely Technologies for Licensing, Patent Database and the Directory of Professional Expertise. These databases help keep stakeholders and industrial partners informed of the University’s intellectual resources and latest achievements in applied research.
