We aims to produce world class research in selected research clusters; and to solve problems for and with society using close connections between HKBU researchers and external stakeholders.

To achieve this we will:  
  • develop clusters of strength to maximise knowledge outputs and impact
  • focus resources on strategic clusters
  • build up research human capacity as well as broaden and deepen research training
  • enhance the learning experiences of scholars and postgraduate students
  • support diverse approaches to scholarship
  • address community needs through applied research
  • develop research collaborations with strategic partners around the world
  • produce new knowledge that improves people’s lives

Our 3 research clusters:

Creative Media/Practice
Film, graphics, literary arts, music, and visual/media arts

Health and Drug Discovery
Chinese medicine, chemistry, microbiology, ageing, physical education

Data Analytics and Artificial Intelligence in X
Where X denotes applications such as Data-journalism and Data-healthcare
