About Us

The University of Hong Kong is a comprehensive university with a strong research program.  One of our key aims is to bring our research results to the wider world through technology transfer, so they can be used for public benefit.

More than 1,000 patent applications related to discoveries at HKU have been filed in recent years.  Our deep ties with industry have become a springboard for new research projects, broader educational opportunities, and collaborative investments.

Two offices smooth the process of connecting our inventions and research know-how with the marketplace: the Technology Transfer Office (TTO) and our commercial arm, Versitech Limited ("港大科橋有限公司").
