Opportunity for Young Scientists: Hong Kong Laureate Forum, November 2021

Date: January 07, 2020

The Hong Kong Laureate Forum aspires to be a world-class academic exchange event to connect the current and next generations of leaders in scientific pursuit, and to promote understanding and interests of the young generation in Hong Kong and around the world in various disciplines in science and technology.

The Forum aims to inspire young scientists from around the world through participation in a week-long programme consisting of world-class intellectual seminars, dialogues, workshops, etc. and provide ample opportunities for exchanges between the Shaw Laureates and the young scientists. The Forum will also be an international platform to encourage cross-cultural dialogue.

The Inaugural Forum will be held in November 2021 in Hong Kong. Being Asia’s world city and a city long celebrated for its vibrancy, Hong Kong is an ideal place for such an international gathering.

While the Council of the Hong Kong Laureate Forum is working on the details of the Forum, it is envisaged that international applications will be invited from young scientists to attend the Forum. Applications for attending the Forum will be invited in 2020.
