CEO and Scientific Director
CEVR is dedicated to creating synergies between world-leading researchers from PolyU and UW to facilitate related research and development. With the support of the Hong Kong government’s initiative, we are confident of further driving global research collaborations, bringing very significant opportunities to the local I&T sector and nurturing next generation talent, while also helping develop Hong Kong into an international innovation powerhouse.
We see limitless potential for how and where our eye-health research and technologies can be deployed so as to better address the needs and challenges of people with vision problems, while enhancing overall vision health. Looking forward, we will continue to leverage the synergies of this international collaboration between PolyU and UW to drive more innovative and advanced research programmes and projects to tackle vision problems in the community.
