Congratulations to three Faculty Members awarded General Research Fund (GRF)

The RGC has recently announced the results of the 2020-21 funding exercise of the General Research Fund (GRF). The School of Law, City University of Hong Kong (CityU) continued to succeed in developing a strong research culture and has obtained three law research grants which indicates that we have a high quality research environment.

The total amount of the three funded projects captured by the School of Law CityU this year exceeded HK$2 million. The principal investigators are (in alphabetical order) Prof Julien CHAISSE, Dr DING Chunyan and Dr Rebecca ONG. Competition is fierce and their hard work has paid off. We congratulate them on their remarkable achievements, and look forward to their outstanding research outputs.

Colleagues who did not succeed in this round just narrowly missed out. They have made considerable efforts in submitting high quality proposals. Their work is rarely wasted as it can become the groundwork for another bid or research project. 

Details of the three funded grants are as follows:

Prof Julien CHAISSE, “Anatomy of Hong Kong’s International Trade Law: Logic and Consequences of Unilateralism, Bilateralism, and Multilateralism” ($952,000).

Dr DING Chunyan, “Two Tales of Legal Mobilization: NGO-led and Procuratorate - led Environmental Public Interest Litigation in China” ($794,883).

Dr Rebecca ONG, “Trust Me, I’m a Doctor: An Empirical Investigation into Factors In uencing the Adoption of e-Health Record Sharing in Hong Kong” ($489,500).
