HKUST is the only Asian university to conduct an IdeasLab to share insights at the World Economic Forum.
President of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) Prof Tony Chan led a delegation to the World Economic Forum (WEF) annual conference in Davos, Switzerland. In Davos, HKUST was the only Asian university to conduct an IdeasLab, where four professors shared their insights with some of the world’s top minds and decision makers on how a seamless merging of virtual realities and our physical world could improve human life. The other six universities were invited to hold IdeasLab at Winter Davos this year: Oxford, Harvard, MIT, Stanford, UC Berkeley and Carnegie Mellon.
