King's and HKU are leading universities with aims to develop strong partnerships that continue building research and teaching excellence. By participating in collaborative teaching, training and research, both institutions can further enhance their existing relationship, and address pressing global issues together. 

 

The agreement opens a new King's-HKU Global Partnership Fund with both institutions providing support over three years towards collaborative activities that address global issues as identified by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and EU Horizon 2020. The fund will support a growing focus on interdisciplinary solutions to international challenges, utilising expertise in topics such as urbanisation, healthy aging, biomedical sciences and translational medicine, food and water safety and many more. This is an significant opportunity for academic and research staff at King's to build lasting relationships with colleagues at HKU to address the most pressing global challenges.
