The HK Prize and Justice Centre Hong Kong

HK Prize is an annual award that recognizes individuals whose actions contribute to furthering world civilisation and creating a harmonious society. Winners may not be household names; rather, they represent good Samaritans and selfless caregivers who give freely of themselves for others; survivors who exhibit resilience despite all odds; these are people that make our world better!

The Hong Kong Science and Technology Innovation Prize is an esteemed research award presented by the government of Hong Kong to outstanding young scientists from around the globe. Winners receive access to Hong Kong’s premier research facilities for six months – providing them an opportunity to sharpen their professional skills at one of the world’s foremost science hubs. Furthermore, winners may attend relevant international conferences and seminars that are relevant to their field.

Justice Centre Hong Kong strives to ensure no person walks alone on the path towards protection, justice and a dignified life. We provide legal and psychosocial assistance, community initiatives and research in support of migrants and their families.

At HKA we are dedicated to building a society in which everyone has equal dignity and opportunities, regardless of origin, gender, nationality, race, colour, education status employment social status religion or political beliefs. We work tirelessly to promote human rights through legislation public education advocacy defending fundamental freedoms for all Hongkongers especially marginalised or vulnerable populations.

At the 40th Hong Kong Film Awards in 2020, Benny Chan was posthumously awarded best director for his cops-and-robbers action flick Raging Fire at a tribute event hosted in his memory by Donnie Yen who also served as producer and action choreographer for it. This honor came at a posthumous award ceremony where editing, action choreography and cinematography won prizes as well.

The Board serves as the highest decision-making body of BOCHK SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY INNOVATION PRIZE and fulfills many important functions, including suggesting key scientific research areas for THE PRIZE; appointing members to Review Committee and Compliance Oversight Team; creating requirements for nominating experts; verifying and approving final review results, etc.

In 2015, we established the Hong Kong Prize to honor a new generation of global leaders in scientific pursuit and to connect current and upcoming scientists through this world-class academic exchange event. Furthermore, our goal is to cultivate future leaders and show the significance of science within society. The Hong Kong Prize is judged by an expert panel representing various sectors of society and offers excellent research funding opportunities. Don’t miss this fantastic chance to showcase your hard work! HK Prize is an exciting project designed for researchers with passion and determination; please join us in supporting this vital cause and let’s work together towards making Hong Kong brighter and more inclusive!
