RGC Open Forum on Collaborative Research

The Research Grants Council (RGC) has been promoting research collaboration over the years and runs different collaborative research funding schemes. An Open Forum on Collaborative Research was held on 14 June 2012 in the Hong Kong Polytechnic University. Chairmen of the RGC, Collaborative Research Fund Sub-Committee, Major Projects Steering Committee and Subject Panels presented at the forum to share their experience on high-impact, collaborative projects. They also enlightened the audience of the key ingredients of successful collaborative proposals, and gave advice on the proposal preparation. The forum was well received and the attendees had useful exchange with the speakers. The video record of the Open Forum can be viewed here where colleagues can revisit the invaluable advice from our overseas experts.
