Where innovations and creativity intersect with the manifold nature of knowledge transfer

The Institute for Innovation, Translation and Policy Research (ITPR) of Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU) is committed to driving innovations, research and development (R&D), technology translation, and applications to enable HKBU to respond to emerging challenges and opportunities globally, nationally, as well as those under the aegis of the Hong Kong SAR Government’s top policy priority on innovation and technology development. We strive to bridge the gap in technology readiness between academic innovation and industry applications.

ITPR comprises three sections - Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Technology Translation, and Policy Research - each being instrumental in fostering a vibrant ecosystem at HKBU conducive to technology translation and collaborations. All-round business development, scientific, and policy research support will anchor HKBU’s robust and sustainable development.
