The Hong Kong
Academy of Sciences
The Hong Kong Academy of Sciences (ASHK) was established in 2015 by a group of most distinguished scientists who have contributed substantially to Hong Kong to promote the development and advancement of science and technology in Hong Kong.
The Academy brings together leading scientists both within and outside of Hong Kong to promote science and technology in Hong Kong. Under the vision of “The Academy thrives to provide leadership in developing Hong Kong as a centre of scientific and technology excellence”, the Academy and all its Members have worked unceasingly on achieving its objectives and informing the public on relevant issues.
To recognise the enormous contribution of Hong Kong’s young scientists and to leverage their enthusiasm for promoting science and technology, the Academy set up the Hong Kong Young Academy of Sciences (YASHK) as an autonomous chapter in 2018.
