CAS-Croucher Joint Laboratories

The CAS-Croucher Funding Scheme for Joint Laboratories is the outcome of an agreement between The Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) and the Croucher Foundation Limited. The purpose of the scheme is to encourage researchers in Hong Kong universities and CAS research institutes to work together on highly specific scientific topics with the intention, in the longer term, to establish a Joint Laboratory through first-hand experiences working together on a joint project. Since 2004, teams of researchers have been selected for support under the Funding Scheme to work on specific collaborative projects. Each team is led by a two academics – one from a research institute of CAS and one from a university in Hong Kong. Financial support for the collaborative projects is provided by the Croucher Foundation, the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the participating institutes/universities.
