UNIVERSITY OF HONG KONG
FACULTY OF ARCHITECTURE
Impact Projects

Similar to Faculty Capacity Building Projects, the University provides funding for the Impact Projects.

KE funding for Impact Project proposals is awarded on project basis rather than Faculty basis. There is no limit on the number of Impact Project proposals to be submitted by a Faculty and all proposals are considered on a competitive basis. The maximum bid for each project is HK$100,000. Proposed projects may be technology-based or non-technology related. Joint proposals for interdisciplinary, collaborative projects among Faculties or between Faculties and non-Faculty-based units are strongly encouraged.

Below is a list of the Impact Project proposals of the Faculty from 2010 to 2014 that were awarded KE Funding by the University:
