Blue Sky Research Fund [Call for Applications]




Creativity is fundamental to our academic life. Motivated by curiosity and a vast knowledge base, creativity allows one to shake up the normal way of thinking and develop new solutions to a problem. Thus, we should encourage the researchers to do curiosity-driven work to push the frontiers of science and advance knowledge outside the restriction of a pre-defined agenda.  Due to the uncertain research outcome, funding from external funding bodies for such research may have proved difficult.  


Given the importance of blue-sky research to the essence of academic life and its potential value to the innovative discoveries, a new internal funding scheme entitled “Blue Sky Research Fund” (BSRF) is set up to provide support to academics to carry out research simply for the sake of curiosity, discovery and knowledge in the development of science, humanity and arts.
