HKUST is thankful to have received HK$100 million from Yuexiu Group on June 10th in support of our University’s efforts in research, innovation, and talent grooming. The donation exemplifies the deepening industry-academia collaboration between Hong Kong and Guangzhou.
In addition, the Group has provided HKUST with a RMB10 million sponsorship for our signature One Million Dollar Entrepreneurship Competition Grand Final to cultivate high-impact entrepreneurial projects in Guangzhou and Hong Kong, helping to boost the knowledge transfer capability in the Greater Bay Area (GBA).
I am confident that the two donations will help us push the academic and research envelope and drive the enhancement of innovative industries in GBA.
