    Press Release 

     
      OUHK receives highest RGC funding among self-financed institutions 13/09/2018
       
     
    The Open University of Hong Kong (OUHK) received a total funding of about HK$13 million from the Research Grants Council (RGC) for 11 projects, which is the highest among all 13 eligible self-financing institutions. It is also the only institution that has successfully received funding from the Institutional Development Scheme (IDS) in five consecutive years, and has received more than HK$10 million among all self-financing institutions this year. The encouraging result affirms the University's strong research capability and its commitment in developing applied research for the betterment of Hong Kong.

    Among the 11 successful OUHK proposals, one proposal is funded under the Institutional Development Scheme (IDS) and 10 projects are supported by the Faculty Development Scheme (FDS). The amount granted for the University's IDS proposal to establish a Public and Social Policy Research Centre is about HK$5.8 million, which is the highest sum among all successful IDS project applications.

    In addition, the total amount granted for OUHK's 10 FDS proposals is about HK$7.2 million this year. The University got the highest number of funded FDS proposals (four proposals) in the Biology and Medicine area, and one of the projects titled "Radial Basis Functions Method for Medical Imaging Problems" even obtained the largest grant (nearly HK$1.2 million) among all the 40 successful FDS proposals.

    In view of the commendable funding result, President of the OUHK Prof. Yuk-Shan Wong said that it is an important recognition of the University's research effort. "Although the OUHK is primarily a teaching university, we value research as a means to create knowledge. The University has committed much effort in developing our research profile in recent years. Thanks to the concerted effort of all members of the University, the total amount of funding obtained by the OUHK has kept increasing from HK$8 million in 2016 to HK$9 million in 2017 and to HK$13 million this year. Furthermore, we are the only institution that has successfully received IDS funding in five consecutive years. Looking ahead, the University will invest more resources in enhancing its research capacity and developing more research projects which will bring benefits to Hong Kong."
