The Institute of Creativity invited Professor Ng Ka-ming, CEO of Nano and Advanced Materials Institute Ltd (NAMI), also Chair Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST), to share with HKBU’s faculty experts yesterday (4 June) in a seminar entitled “NAMI – Our past and where we are headed next”. At the event, Professor Ng introduced the latest development of NAMI‘s projects and the company’s future plan in collaboration with HKBU in technological development.

 

Professor Ng said, “Over the past years, NAMI has been in a position connecting investors who are looking for new products and innovators who are looking for applications. With funding from various industrial sectors, we rely very much on university expertise in the implementation of projects.” Professor Ng also gave an overview to the audience on the NAMI’s current projects on the development of sustainable energy, environmental technology in the reuse of wastewater, and technological development of construction and building materials.

 

Looking forward to the future collaboration with HKBU faculty experts, Professor Ng said that more focused meeting and joint effort in the incubation of research and development projects between the company and the University’s faculty members would be considered as one of the forthcoming paths. To attain sustainable development, Professor Ng thinks that NAMI has to keep up with its performance in the industry. The company is also offering internships to university graduates as one of the ways to cultivate talents.

 

Professor Albert Chan, President and Vice-Chancellor, together with twenty other experts in the science and technology fields participated in the seminar yesterday. NAMI is a research and development centre funded by the HKSAR Government.

納米及先進材料研發院有限公司(簡稱NAMI)行政總裁及香港科技大學化學工程及生物分子工程講座教授吳嘉名教授昨日(六月四日)應創意研究院的邀請,並以「NAMI Our past and where we are headed next」為題,與一眾浸大學院專家介紹該公司的最新項目發展,及分享來年與浸大共同拓展技術研發的計劃。

 

吳教授說﹕「在過去多年,公司充當中介者的角色,為尋找新產品的投資者物色技術供應。憑藉業界的支持,並以大學作為科研基礎,落實應用新技術,對我們起著很重要的作用。」吳教授於會上概述該公司現正進行的多個項目,包括可持續能源的發展,循環再用經過處理的污水的技術,以及建築物料的技術發展等。

 

展望該公司與浸大共同拓展的計劃,吳教授期望來年有更多機會讓NAMI的團隊與浸大的學院專家進行深入探討,在研究發展的長遠計劃上共同努力。吳教授同時認為公司需不斷創新,實行可持續發展,並一如往年,推出實習生計劃以培育人才。

 

昨日舉辦的分享會中,校長陳新滋教授和大約二十多名學院專家出席及分享交流。納米及先進材料研發院由特區政府撥款資助。
