The outstanding achievements of staff in teaching, research and knowledge exchange were honoured at the University’s annual award presentation ceremony on March 26, presided over for the last time by Vice-Chancellor Professor Lap-Chee Tsui, who stepped down from his post at the end of March.

Awards were handed out in seven categories to recognise the breadth and high quality of achievements by both young talent and their more experienced colleagues, at both the University
and Faculty levels.

The Pro-Chancellor, Dr the Honourable Sir David Li Kwok-po, was the Guest of Honour and gave the closing address, while Professor Tsui welcomed the recipients.

“Over more than a decade at HKU,” Professor Tsui said, “I have had the pleasure of watching gifted teachers and researchers flourish, and I am honoured to be amongst so many exceptional individuals who are working together to achieve excellence for the University and significant benefits for society.”
