Message from the Dean

Welcome to the website of Hong Kong Baptist University Changshu Research Institute.

To further boost the research and knowledge transfer programmes of HKBU, which are two of the key strategic goals of the University's Vision 2020 blueprint, and to enable the University to build a bridgehead for launching new initiatives in the Yangtze River Delta, the University has decided to establish the HKBU Changshu Research Institute (CRI) in the Changshu Economic Development Zone (CEDZ) of Jiangsu Province. In this regard, the University has set up a wholly-foreign-owned-enterprise in mainland China to operate CRI. CRI has been under operation ever since April 2013, which mainly focuses on conducting research in the fields of Chinese medicine, drug discovery and new materials. CRI will also take up contract research offered by enterprises in the region, and offer postgraduate and professional training programmes for executives in the neighbouring cities. Its remit also includes knowledge transfer, consultancy and testing services for neighbouring industries.

This is an innovative and exciting opportunity for young and aspiring scholars. We look forward to your joining us at CRI, which is poised to become a first-rate research and development institute and professional training provider in the region.

Professor WONG, Rick W. K.
