What is the HK Prize?

hk prize

The hk prize is an annual award that recognizes individuals who make significant contributions to world civilisation by inspiring others towards a harmonious society. Winners include selfless volunteers, good Samaritans and survivors against all odds. They range from students who use their skills to help homeless people to a professor whose liquid biopsy technology has speeded up cancer diagnosis.

In addition to the monetary award, winners of the HK Prize can benefit from seminars and research internships in one of Asia’s premier science hubs, where they are able to collaborate with cutting-edge scientists who have gone on to win Nobel prizes. As well as boosting their careers, this can help them connect with international peers and enhance their networking opportunities.

HK Prize is a non-profit organisation set up by Hong Kong based academics and business leaders. It is a platform to support the next generation of scientific minds in Hong Kong, and the global community at large. HK Prize also promotes public awareness of the value of science and its role in building a prosperous and sustainable future for all.

The Hong Kong Prize is an annual award presented to researchers whose work has direct and profound ramifications for business, finance, engineering, and other applications. The award is supported by the Hong Kong Research Council and Hong Kong Applied Sciences Research Fund, and is open to Fellows of the Academy who publish original research papers in clinical studies, observational or epidemiological studies (review articles and letters to editors are ineligible).

As well as offering a substantial cash prize for the winning scientist, winners can also expect the opportunity to network with industry, attend seminars, and gain valuable work experience. The HK Prize is one of the most popular research awards in Hong Kong, with more than a thousand applications received last year.
