HKBU’s Cheung On Tak International Award for Outstanding Contribution to Chinese Medicine now open for nominations

浸大中醫藥學院舉辦「張安德中醫藥國際貢獻獎」 現正接受提名

Established by the School of Chinese Medicine of Hong Kong Baptist University in 2011, the biennial Cheung On Tak International Award for Outstanding Contribution to Chinese Medicine aims to recognise scientists and scholars with groundbreaking and internationally recognised achievements in advancing the internationalisation of Chinese medicine or Chinese medicine research. The Fourth Cheung On Tak International Award for Outstanding Contribution to Chinese Medicine is now accepting nominations until 3 July 2017.

With its rapid development in different parts of the world, traditional Chinese medicine is playing an increasingly important role in the health care systems of many countries. HKBU therefore established the Award with a view to fostering the development as well as internationalisation and modernisation of Chinese medicine for the benefit of the global community. 

Nominations from local and non-local academic institutions such as universities and research institutes, or relevant departments/councils or academic societies at or above the provincial/ministerial level in Mainland China as well as individual scholars are welcome.

A distinguished Panel of Adjudicators comprising renowned scholars and scientists in related fields will select the awardee(s) on the basis of the nominees’ contribution to the Chinese medicine sector, achievements in advancing the internationalisation of Chinese medicine, and academic/professional influence in the international arena. The Fourth Award carries a monetary prize of HK$500,000. In the event of the conferment of more than one award, the prize money will be shared equally between the awardees. It is expected that the awardees will be selected by the end of 2017 and the award presentation-cum-lecture by the awardee(s) will be held in 2018.
   
Details of the Award and nomination form are available at http://scm.hkbu.edu.hk/cm-award. For enquiries, please contact the Award Secretariat (telephone: (852) 3411 2077; fax: (852) 3411 2902; email: scm@hkbu.edu.hk).
