The Conference for Higher Education Research Hong Kong 2018 (CHER-Hong Kong 2018) co-hosted by Lingnan University, Asia Pacific Higher Education Research Partnership (APHERP) and IAFOR was held on 19-21 October at Lingnan University. The theme of the Conference was “Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Value”.


The Conference examined how governments, universities, industries and businesses, and community at large in Asia work together to not only promote innovation and entrepreneurship for economic reasons but also for social development and cultural enhancement. Higher education researchers, university senior administrators, government officials, policy analysts, professionals working across industries and education came together to explore new strategies and measures in support of innovation-centric entrepreneurship.


Six keynote and featured speakers, together with around 60 paper presenters from 19 countries/regions across Europe, USA, Australia, Middle East and Asia, joined the discussion. Postgraduate students from Lingnan and education professionals from the University of Southern California’s Global Executive EdD programme, invited guests and academics from other higher education institutions in Hong Kong also participated in the Conference.
