A new Academic and Professional Conference Fund is launched to support academic and research units to host international conferences at CUHK.
New financial subsidy for hosting of international conferences at CUHK
In support of the University's ongoing internationalisation efforts to strengthen its global presence and to promote international research collaboration, CUHK encourages the hosting of international conferences on campus. Apart from the International Events Management Service rendered by the Office of Academic Links (OAL), a new Academic and Professional Conference Fund has been set up to provide financial subsidy to defray part of the logistical expenses in order to make it more attractive and viable for academic and research units to host such conferences.
Academic and research units which have subscribed to the International Events Management Service provided by OAL will receive a financial subsidy of 50% of the service fee (capped at $20,000). The financial support can be used to cover logistical expenses such as rental for on-campus venues and AV equipment; on-campus Wi-Fi; catering; production of conference website, registration system, promotional and printing materials, and conference items and giveaways; transportation; and exhibition (poster/booth). The subsidy will be provided on a first come, first served basis. For details, please visit here.
In 2014-15, a number of international events were held successfully on campus with the support of the International Events Team. They include: CUHK-MIT Joint Workshop on E-learning and Big Data, March 2015; WUN Annual General Meeting 2015, April 2015; Gordon Research Conferences, May-June 2015; AGU Chapman Conference on Evolution of the Asian Monsoon and its Impact on Landscape, Environment and Society, June 2015; and The 9th Asia Academy of Management and the 8th Taiwan Academy of Management Joint Conference, June 2015.The team will continue to support the hosting of international conference on campus in order to boost the pace of internationalisation of the University.
