The HKU-Pasteur Research Pole is pleased to announce the launch of the second edition of the HKU-Pasteur Research Pole Fellowship for Summer-Autumn 2022!

Deadline for Application: 20/12/21

The HKU‐Pasteur Research Pole Fellowship Programme provides a unique opportunity for postgraduate students and postdoctoral fellows in Hong Kong and Macau to pursue their research projects in an outstanding scientific environment, at the Institut Pasteur in Paris.

In current times of global pandemic, the research conducted by both the HKU-Pasteur Research Pole and the Institut Pasteur are crucial to advance global scientific knowledge, notably regarding emerging infectious diseases. Ensuring continuity in scientific training for the next generation of scientists is more important than ever.

Louis Pasteur famously said that “Chance favors invention only for minds prepared for discoveries by patient study and persevering efforts." In line with this belief and with the Pasteurian values that science belongs to mankind and should be shared with altruism, HKU-Pasteur, with the support of the Pasteur Foundation Asia (PFA) and the Consulate General of France, is pleased to announce the launch the “HKU-Pasteur Research Pole Fellowship Programme” for up to two scholarships.
