The World University Leadership Summit recently concluded in Shenzhen. William Xu, Huawei Fellow and Chair of Huawei's Scientist Advisory Committee, who took part in the summit representing the business sector, shed light on an important necessity of modern-day academia: Collaboration. He said, "New theoretical and technological breakthroughs are urgently needed to lead the information industry into new stages. Universities, research institutions, and enterprises should work closely together to address industry challenges and deliver world class achievements."
In this tech-ade, collaboration is a key mantra across all sectors. It’s no different for education, as collaborating and knowledge sharing are crucial to advancing education and bringing it closer to the industry, bridging the gap. Collaborating across various disciplines helps institutions increase creativity, innovation, and problem-solving abilities and better serve their students and communities.

City University of Hong Kong (CityU) is setting a great benchmark for the world to follow in this regard. For instance, an international team led by CityU recently announced a groundbreaking step forward toward the technical know-how required to clean up the planet. “Hydrogen generated by electro catalytic water splitting is regarded as one of the most promising clean energies for replacing fossil fuels in the near future, reducing environmental pollution and the greenhouse effect,” said Professor Zhang Hua, Herman Hu Chair Professor of Nanomaterials at CityU, who is leading the research. While CityU is well set on pursuing the future, we look back to the past, presenting stories about the university’s prestigious alumni ecosystem.
