Given the fast pace of education development in Hong Kong, Mainland China and the Asia-Pacific Region, the University continues to adopt a research and development (R&D) philosophy that defines excellence as encompassing scholarship, professionalism, and services (through knowledge transfer) to the community and the teaching profession, not only locally but also internationally. Our new and far-reaching concept of education plus, is also being applied to broaden the scope of research and promote multi-disciplinary research for the development and innovation of education and beyond.
Within this philosophy, we are maintaining the highest standards
of scholarship, teaching and service through the R&D activities
of our academic staff, placing a special focus on educational
development and innovation at the early childhood, primary and
secondary levels, as well as in the ongoing process of lifelong
learning. [More about research & development]
