CUHK hosts prestigious international Worldwide Universities Network Conference and Annual General Meeting
CUHK played host to the Worldwide Universities Network (WUN) Conference and Annual General Meeting during 25-30 April 2015, bringing together some 400 delegates comprising the Network's leadership, as well as researchers, experts, administrators, practitioners and policymakers from all over the world, to assess progress of the Network, review and plan its research programmes, and engage with key personnel and stakeholders. The 6-day event features a number of academic meetings and conferences, including the Understanding Global Digital Cultures Conference, Migration Conference, Public Health Conference on Healthy Ageing, and the China Foreign Direct Investment Symposium. It ended with a Presidents Forum held at The Chinese University of Hong Kong, Shenzhen where over 30 WUN presidents and Chinese presidents deliberated the reform agendas for higher education in China and the world, as well as international collaboration opportunities.
Prof. Joseph Sung, Vice-Chancellor, said he was pleased to host this year’s event. ‘CUHK is very proud to host the WUN community. We hope that our guests found this event valuable and constructive, while enjoying all that our campus, and the great city of Hong Kong, has to offer,’ said Prof. Sung.
Ms. Shally Fan, Director of Academic Links, said, ‘Hosting the AGM on campus helps to enhance the University’s international presence and the awareness of WUN, and more importantly, facilitate research collaboration. A number of projects in the areas of migration, public health, and digital cultures involving CUHK faculty members have emerged from the event.’
