In recent years, we have witnessed the success of our colleagues in various fields of research. Their contributions to the achievements of CityU in local and international arenas deserve recognition. To this end, the University introduced the CityU Research Excellence Awards (REA) Scheme in 2007, which replaced the previous Applied Research Excellence Awards.
