The Hong Kong University of science and technology
Asia-Pacific Conference on Innovation and Entrepreneurship Ecosystems (APCIEE)
In partnership with the Association of Pacific Rim Universities (APRU), the Division of Public Policy (PPOL) at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) will host an inaugural Asia-Pacific Conference on Innovation and Entrepreneurship Ecosystems (APCIEE) in this coming December. The conference aims at creating a venue for critical dialogues focusing on nurturing an innovation and entrepreneurship ecosystem, cultivating collaboration across disciplines, sectors, and governing bodies, inspiring the younger generation to take on the challenge ahead. Bringing together thought leadership, key stakeholders, experience practitioners, and budding young minds, the conference will bridge the knowledge gap between researchers, policy-makers, business leaders, university leaders, entrepreneurs and investors on many pressing issues essential for converting the existing strengths of research universities into resources that can draw on talents around the world and catalyze innovation with a stronger momentum, realizing the true impact of this regional initiative in the coming decades.
