Croucher Advanced Study Institute (ASI)

ASIs aim to enhance the dissemination of knowledge and formation of international scientific contacts by providing financial support for organization of high-level teaching activities in any scientific discipline or technology. Lectures and teaching activities in ASIs should be made in tutorial form. ASI must be a standalone event with duration of about 3 working days to give adequate time for the development of a topic and allow for sufficient interaction between scientists. An ASI is primarily aimed at established "senior" scientists and should not be primarily targeted at postgraduate students.  The financial support for each supported application is usually no more than HK$600,000. The Croucher Foundation accepts applications once a year and application results are usually announced in mid-April next year.
