Leveraging on our strength in humanistic research, HKBU is dedicated to driving cutting-edge discovery and scholarship to meet the challenges of today’s and tomorrow’s world. We have built up six unique interdisciplinary laboratories to create a platform for great minds to pursue enduring knowledge to meet global challenges. It champions collaborative research across disciplines and faculties, and nurtures young talents to explore their potentials. It coalesces experts and professionals from a broad range of backgrounds, leading to tremendous opportunities for collaborative research and knowledge transfer.
