As part of its ongoing effort to promote knowledge transfer, The Education University of Hong Kong (EdUHK) organised an innovation salon today (3 Jan) to showcase its award-winning projects recognised at different international invention exhibitions over the year. During 2019, the University won 17 international awards.

Organised by the Knowledge Transfer Sub-office of Research and Development Office (KT Sub-office), the occasion, titled “EdUHK Award Winning Innovations Salon”, was intended to stimulate scholars from different disciplines to focus on research projects with application value and create collaboration opportunities.

Among the attendees were Professor Lui Tai-lok, Vice President (Research and Development), and Ms Elsa Hung Pui-ling, Assistant Commissioner for Efficiency of HKSAR. Showcased at the event were 14 winning entries, which received awards in The International Exhibition of Inventions of Geneva 2019, The Silicon Valley International Invention Festival 2019, The International Invention Innovation Competition in Canada 2019 and The iENA – International Trade Fair “Ideas-Inventions-New Products” in Germany 2019. The innovations cover a wide spectrum of applications, including educational technology for language and music education, learning monitoring and assessment technology, and AI for education and environmental technology.

Professor Lui said, “This international recognition greatly encourages EdUHK researchers to develop more impactful projects with the injection of innovative ideas and technological development. EdUHK will continue to collaborate with different stakeholders for the betterment of education in Hong Kong and beyond.”
