Published on the first Tuesday of every month.


President’s Lecture
Novel biomedical systems could be generated by combining nanotechnology with biological science, according to Professor Stella Pang, Chair Professor of Electronic Engineering and Director of the Centre for Biosystems, Neuroscience, and Nanotechnology at CityU. In her talk as part of the President’s Lecture Series: Excellence in Academia on 9 February, Professor Pang will note that while nanotechnology can provide high precision control, biological activities often have a high degree of variation. She will discuss how to match these two disciplines by applying nanotechnology to engineer sensors and actuators for biomedical applications. The title of the talk is “Nanotechnology for Biomedical Microsystems”. For more information, please visit here.


CityU Distinguished Lecture
An analysis of the past, present, and future status of Taiwan’s economic and industrial development will form the backbone to a City University Distinguished Lecture to be delivered by Dr Chang Chia Juch, Chairman of the China Development Industrial Bank, on 11 February. The title of Dr Chang’s talk is “The Key Issues of Economic and Industrial Development in Taiwan”. He will also explore what is the driving force behind Taiwan’s economic growth; what are the key issues for the future economic and industrial development in Taiwan; how does the Taiwan government assist in the upgrade and transformation of traditional industries; and what strategies and measures for promoting the development of key industries in Taiwan are currently deployed.
