This is the first time for HKBU to participate in the International Exhibition of Inventions Geneva, the world's largest event of its kind. This year, the organisation awarded 45 inventions among the 1,000 presented from 40 countries. The fact that HKBU won the Grand Prix is not only an honour for HKBU but also for Hong Kong.

My most sincere congratulations go to our three professors, their students and the teams, for their painstaking efforts and persistence in these winning projects! Their inventions are impactful and of benefit to society and mankind. I would also like to thank colleagues of the Knowledge Transfer Office, Faculty of Science as well as the relevant departments for the support they have provided to the research teams whose achievements are very meaningful gifts to commemorate the University’s 60th Anniversary.
