In early July, HKU Dean of Science Professor Matthew Evans led a delegation from the Faculty to visit science and technology institutes at Zhejiang Province, China — an emerging innovation hub located in the fast-growing Yangtze River Delta Region, forging strong ties for future collaboration opportunities.

The delegation took the opportunity to visit some leading institutes in the area — the Faculty of Science and College of Life Sciences of Zhejiang University, Zhejiang Foreign Science and Technology Exchange Center and HKU Zhejiang Institute of Research and Innovation (HKU-ZIRI), gaining a deeper understanding about the latest science and technology development in the region, and learning more about their research facilities, achievements and ongoing research projects.

The delegation discussed possible collaboration opportunities on scientific research and technology transfer with the leaders, particularly on artificial intelligence, marine science and biotechnology. Professor Evans also had a chance to inform them about the Faculty’s strategic development plans, research strengths and achievements.

The visits provided a good platform for fostering future collaborations among the Faculty and the leading institutes, echoing the Faculty’s vision of strengthening our leading position in Asia and being competitive globally.
