The CAS-Croucher Funding Scheme for Joint Laboratories

30 May 2011

This scheme 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. The two awards for 2010 were:

  1. “Identification of in vivo Substrates for MAP-kinase cascades that Play Key Roles in Ethylene Signaling Using Functional Phosphoproteomics and Interactomics” presented by Prof LI Ning (Biology, HKUST) and Dr LI Jia-yang (Institute of Genetics and Developmental Biology, CAS) – HK$1 million;
  2. “Study of the Mechanical Properties of Advanced Materials with Nanotwins” presented by Prof LU Jian (Mechanical Engineering, PolyU) and Prof LU Ke, (Institute of Metal Research, CAS) – HK$1 million.
