HKU Innovation Holdings Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the University of Hong Kong (HKU), is incorporated to facilitate global research collaboration and impactful collaborative research.
We provide governance oversight as well as administrative support, services and guidelines to our nine subsidiary companies. Each of these companies, also known as R&D Centres, focuses on a specific area of research and development. Established under the Health@InnoHK and AIR@InnoHK clusters, these R&D Centres are led by HKU professors and are closely working with international collaborators across the globe.
Working closely with the R&D Centres, our purpose is to ensure a wholesome environment for innovation, facilitate commercialization, and transfer the research and development results into products that would have an impact on relevant industries, therefore benefit people’s work and livelihood.
