The mission for the Office of Innovation and Enterprise (OIE) is to service the commercial development of companies derived from the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) including those companies formed by CUHK students, staff and alumni. To this end, OIE strives to promote research innovation, knowledge exchange and entrepreneurship activities in CUHK along with other offices, while specifically engaging a wide range of stakeholders outside of CUHK – from researchers and administrators to industrial partners and investment funds, in order to support and strengthen CUHK’s global links, accelerating the translation of university’s research into tangible societal impact.
OIE leverages on the new opportunities of Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (GBA) to further foster CUHK’s development in China. Key projects include i) establishing a unique Center of Excellence for healthcare research, which will be a platform for interdisciplinary and multi-organizational collaborations, ii) building the infrastructures for translational medicine like GMP cell processing facility, and iii) invigorating private and public partnerships in sectors such as material science, green technology and marine science.
Over the past decades, CUHK has built her renowned reputation through excellence in research and academic education. OIE aspires to achieve the next goals of CUHK, to translate the excellent basic research into commercial products and services that would have high impact on the society, by partnering with private and public enterprises. We invite you to contact us to explore innovation commercialization, partnership and investment opportunities.
