Scholar in nanotechnology shares insights on the latest technological development
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.
