Sponsored by HKU Vice-President/Pro-Vice Chancellor (Global) Office and WEF (World Economic Forum), this event aims to “demystify” WEF for HKU academic staff and students. WEF goes far beyond just global economics. It is a knowledge platform for global collaboration and societal impact.

We are keen to deepen our collaboration with WEF on the following fronts to augment HKU core mission in research, teaching & learning, and knowledge exchange. Come to learn how this can benefit your own scholarship, impact, exposure, and visibility.
