The NSFC Excellent Young Scientist Fund has been operating in Hong Kong for three years. The Faculty has been very successful in this scheme and this year gained another five awardees. This brings the Faculty of Science’s total to ten, this is out of 75 in Hong Kong and Macau and 23 in the whole of HKU. I think that this is an amazing result and a great statement of the quality of our junior staff. The best performing groups by a long way are Chemistry and Ecology both of Divisions have had three awards. I also think that it is relevant that Ecology has had what I believe are the only non-Chinese awardees.
