What Can the IAS Do for You?


\\ The IAS is committed to education and to the promotion of public engagement with the frontiers of knowledge. We provide a platform for prominent scholars to share the fruits of their research with HKUST and the wider community and to inspire new thinking.

The IAS takes pride in its professors, fellows and regular visitors, who engage in a host of education and research projects, and has sponsored many lectures, seminars, conferences and programs in physical science, life science, engineering, business, economics, humanities and the social science.

We also welcome distinguished scholars and international leaders from diverse different backgrounds for extended visits to collaborate with HKUST faculty to advance scientific discovery and inspire students.

While the global outbreak of COVID-19 has made face-to-face academic and research activities more challenging, we remain committed to supporting scholarly collaboration and promoting the exchange of knowledge and ideas through online initiatives, and face-to-face interactions where the situation allows. //


The success of the IAS depends on your support and input. Please contact Prof. Andrew G. COHEN, Director of the IAS and Lam Woo Foundation Professor, to discuss how you might support the IAS.
