The HK Prize – Celebrating the Achievements of Those Who Make the World a Better Place

The hk prize is one of Asia’s premier awards that attracts thousands of applicants each year. In addition to a substantial monetary prize, winners gain access to Hong Kong’s top research facilities and have the opportunity to attend seminars that help advance their careers. They also receive international exposure through this prestigious award, which has been sponsored by Bank of China (Hong Kong) Limited.

Scientists have been awarded the hk prize for their work in astronomy, life science and medicine, and mathematics sciences. This year’s winners include selfless volunteers and good Samaritans who make the world a better place, a professor who developed liquid biopsy technology that speeds up cancer diagnosis, and an astrophysicist who discovered fast radio bursts (FRBs), which are mysterious signals in space whose origin is still unknown.

Despite the challenges that come with such an intense competition, those who adhere to the rules are likely to reap the rewards. These individuals will not only be able to boast about winning an hk prize, but they can also reap financial prizes and shopping vouchers, as well as food and beverages benefits at the various awards ceremonies held throughout the city.

The hk prize has been established to honour those who contribute to world civilisation. In a world where there is much suffering and injustice, these are the people who make our lives better and bring joy to others. Whether they are selfless volunteers who help the homeless, or professors who developed liquid biopsy technology to speed up cancer diagnosis, we should celebrate their efforts and encourage them to continue their good deeds.

It is a great honor to be a part of this annual event, and I look forward to celebrating the achievements of these outstanding scientists again in November. I want to thank the HK Prize Secretariat and all the members for their hard work and dedication in making this award a success. I hope that the hk prize will continue to shine its spotlight on the brightest and most outstanding scientific researchers in our region, inspiring young students to further their studies in science and contributing to the global advancement of humanity.

Founded in 1996, this prize was established by friends and students to honour the late Dr John D. Young, a distinguished historian who contributed to the re-establishment of the Department of History as one of the main teaching and research departments in The University of Hong Kong. The prize is awarded annually to a third-year student of the highest academic standing with at least 48 credits in History.

The Board is the highest decision-making body of THE PRIZE and is responsible for suggesting important scientific research fields for THE PRIZE, selecting reviewers, nominating experts, and verifying and approving the final review results. The Board is also responsible for the overall governance of THE PRIZE, including setting requirements for nominating experts and setting procedures for reviewers to assess the integrity of nominated experts.
