Message from the President

I am delighted to see the first issue of our newsletter on research. While being a teaching institution, the OUHK has been encouraging research. We see the importance of research to inform teaching. It is clear that we should strive to pursue excellence in it. We should build on our strengths and unleash our relevant potentials. The birth of this newsletter signifies a step forward in research development of the OUHK.

Research Bulletin aims to update colleagues on the latest development of our research, and provides a broad range of useful research related information to our academics. It is supported by funding from the Institutional Development Scheme (IDS) of the Research Grants Council (RGC). The IDS is one of the three competitive research funding schemes of the RGC for the local self-financing degree sector. It aims to build up the research capacity of local self-financing degree-awarding institutions. With support from it, the OUHK is planning to set up institutes and centres for research in our strategic areas. Using the funding, we also organise seminars and workshops, and provide additional research resources and supporting facilities to enhance the research capability of our colleagues.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the University Research Centre for its conscientious efforts. I look forward to seeing an increasing number of successful research projects with fruitful outputs.
