Although we are a relatively small department, our faculty members are active in applying for internal and external research grants. Over the past years, we have successfully obtained a remarkable number of grants, in which 15 of them are GRF/ECS grants from the RGC in the past five years. These grants allow our faculty members to work on their high quality research projects, such as applied ethics, philosophy of language, the social engagement of Christians in Hong Kong, and Kantian studies in a contemporary context.
Our two research centres, Centre for Applied Ethics and Centre for Sino-Christian Studies, have also secured a decent amount of external grants and private donation that makes more collaborative research projects possible.
Some notable recent examples of research grants obtained can be found below. You can also browse our individual faculty members’ profile for details.
