3 Research Projects from CSE Department got the support from NSFC/RGC Joint Research Scheme 2007/08

After several rounds of review and the final approval of National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) and the Research Grants Council (RGC), the results for NSFC-RGC Joint Research Scheme 2007/08 have recently been released.

23 projects were selected out of 380 applications. The success rate is less than 10% due to intensive competition among applicants. We are very glad that, while 9 of the 23 projects are from HKUST, 3 of them are from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering:

This year, the contributions from NSFC and RGC have increased to RMB 7.5 M and HKD 15M respectively. Life science and information science are still the main fields for joint research, with 6 approved in information science and 8 in life sciences.
