The UGC commends Lingnan's continuous efforts to promote Knowledge Transfer activities with Strong Social Impact



The UGC commends LU’s impressive performance in expanding KT activities, which resulted in an increase of 209% and 54% respectively in cumulative income from on-going social projects and contract research, as well as a rise of 83% in income from professional projects including consultancies.  According to the annual review of KT activities organized by Lingnan, the UGC is pleased to note that LU has continued to raise the profile of KT at institutional level, as seen in the renaming of the Office of Research Support as the Office of Research and Knowledge Transfer.


The UGC also appreciates LU’s efforts in launching the “Fighting COVID-19 @ Lingnan Campaign”, which has effectively met the changing needs of the society amidst the challenging moment.  The “Fighting COVID-19 @ Lingnan Campaign”, projects under the Campaign reach out to the wider society and local community for promoting Discovery (Research), Services and Education (public health education). The research findings related to COVID-19 pandemic have been widely reported by international webinars and also published into international journals or international media. Some Highlights below:
