The Ministry of Science and Technology has approved the inclusion of the seven CityU scholars for the pilot programme of the database.
Inclusion will boost CityU scholars’ participation in national science and technology projects, and will strengthen exchanges and research collaborations across the border.
The seven academics are:
l Professor Paul Lam Kwan-sing, a leading expert on environmental science, Vice-President (Student Affairs), and Director of the State Key Laboratory in Marine Pollution;
l Professor Lu Jian, an expert in mechanical engineering, civil engineering and mechanics, Fellow of the National Academy of Technologies of France, and Dean of the College of Science and Engineering;
l Professor Johnny Chan Chung-leung, a leading expert on atmospheric sciences and tropical cyclones, Fellow of the American Meteorological Society, Director of the Guy Carpenter Asia-Pacific Climate Impact Centre, and Dean of the School of Energy and Environment;
l Professor Lee Shuit-tong, an expert in materials science, Academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, and Director of the Centre of Super-Diamond and Advanced Films;
l Professor Luk Kwai-man, Director of the State Key Laboratory of Millimeter Waves, who has engaged in research on antenna theories and applications, microwave measurement and computational electromagnetics for many years and has made significant contributions in different areas of antenna development;
l Professor Xue Quan, Associate Vice-President (Innovation Advancement and China Office) and Deputy Director of the State Key Laboratory of Millimeter Waves, whose research mainly focuses on microwave circuit, antennas, radio frequency integrated circuits; and
l Professor Chan Chi-hou, member of the Academic Committee of the State Key Laboratory of Millimeter Waves, whose expertise lies in computational electromagnetics, antenna design, novel microwave circuit analysis and design.
"These outstanding scholars are leading experts in their respective fields,” said Professor Way Kuo, University President, congratulating the nominated academics. “They will enhance exchanges and collaboration between researchers in Hong Kong and the mainland.”
He said the inclusion of all our nominated academics in the database is an indication of CityU’s academic strength. He hoped more CityU academics would join the database in the future to further promote technology and research development in Hong Kong and the mainland.
Academics listed in the Expert Database will support the work of the Ministry of Science and Technology.
They will participate in compiling the application and implementation guides for national science and technology programmes, assessing project applications, evaluating implementation progress of approved projects, and putting forward views and suggestions on the management of these projects.
