Dear Students and Colleagues,

The memorial service for Mr. Jiang Zemin, the late President of the People's Republic of China, will be held in the Great Hall of the People in Beijing at 10am on Tuesday, 6 December 2022.

Across the country from 10:00 to 10:03am people will observe a three-minute silence as a respectful tribute to President Jiang.

The University will live broadcast the memorial service at Kin Sun Square (Skylight). Students and staff of Lingnan University are requested to observe these three minutes of silence and, in line with Chinese customs, are strongly encouraged to refrain from wearing colourful clothes and holding entertainment activities on that same day. Thank you.

Research & Impact

Innovation and Impact Fund

Innovation & Impact Fund


For a stronger synergy of Lingnan’s efforts in responding to the advocacy of the HKSAR Chief Executive and the UGC for innovation, entrepreneurship and commercialisation of research outputs, the Office of Research and Knowledge Transfer (ORKT) has rolled out this new Fund which incorporates the internal KT Project Fund (KPF) and Entrepreneurial KT Fund (EKT), and a new scheme to support faculty members’ entrepreneurial initiatives.


The former KPF and EKT have funded 50 projects and proven to be effective catalysts of innovative ideas for translating research into impact. The new IIF is designed to take the step forward by building an innovative culture and a supportive environment for innovations and social entrepreneurship. Students and staff may use the fund to develop prototypes for a new product or to prove a new concept leading to or aimed at a start-up for impact on humanity.


Two programmes under the IIF:

a) KT Programme

b) Entrepreneurship Programme

  • Supports innovative ideas, practical solutions and executable plans to start an NGO, social enterprise or company for impact on humanity
  • “Gatherly” is one of the projects supported by the Fund. It endeavours to build a job-matching platform that links up company recruiters and older people who can be good fits to such work as conducting handicraft workshops, through which these senior service providers may enjoy the social engagement, recognition and possibly some financial returns.
