Chief Executive Carrie Lam today visited Lingnan University to learn more about its promotion of gerontechnology in society as well as creative digital media learning.
Mrs Lam viewed gerontech products in relation to healthcare, dining, living and commuting at the university’s Jockey Club Gerontech-X Lab.
She also visited the Animation & Digital Arts Lab to find out how it encourages students to make use of digital equipment for creative work.
The Chief Executive then received a briefing on how the university motivates students and teaching staff to leverage technology and cross-sectoral collaboration to meet society’s needs, including through developing a reusable and transparent anti-COVID-19 face mask and a wheelchair handle sensoring system.
Noting that the nation’s 14th Five-Year Plan has stated for the first time the support for Hong Kong to develop as a hub for arts and cultural exchanges between China and the rest of the world, Mrs Lam said she believes the university can leverage its own advantages to contribute to the promotion of cultural exchanges.
“I also encourage Lingnan University to seize the opportunities brought about by the development of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area to advance the university’s development and nurture more talents for the bay area,” she added.
