Knowledge exchange (KE) has always been an important element of the University’s mission and practice and is best used to describe the proactive two-way flow of knowledge between the university and non-academic sectors of society for the benefit of both.  The University defines knowledge exchange as engaging, for mutual benefit, with business, government or the public to generate, acquire, apply and make accessible the knowledge needed to enhance material, human, social, cultural and environmental well-being. It not only includes technology transfer but also encompasses all disciplines, including the arts and humanities and the social sciences, and is a two-way process.

The University of Hong Kong has a long tradition of contributing to the community. Our faculty members have been engaging in a wide range of KE activities through, inter alia, applied research, technology transfer, delivery of professional and continuing education courses, public lectures, and expertise sharing through professional bodies and media.
