KNOWLEDGE TRANSFER OFFICE
The Knowledge Transfer Office (KTO) serves as the bridge between the University and the community for the transfer of knowledge, technology, expertise, skills and capabilities in campus-wide disciplines. The office actively protects and commercialises intellectual property rights (IPR) developed at the University, runs the Business Entrepreneurship Support & Training programme, and supports knowledge transfer activities undertaken by Faculties and Departments in the University.
Research Assessment Exercise 2020 (RAE2020) is the first UGC assessment exercise to appraise both research quality and research impact beyond academia. For the latter, impact case studies describing specific examples of research impacts, including qualitative and quantitative effects or benefits made to the economy, society, culture, public policy or services, health, the environment, or quality of life, will be submitted and evaluated. Clear and concise articulation on the respective impacts is fundamental in a good impact case study. In addition, good narrative structure, with compelling and clear logic showing how the researches led to the impact claimed, is crucial. In short, robust analytic and writing skill is essential in presenting strong impact case studies.
The Office now invites applications for the position of Knowledge Transfer Officer (Editorial). The appointee will be important in helping HKBU faculties develop strong impact case studies. He/She will undertake a systematic evaluation and assessment of the research impact results of RAE2020, assist KTO to pro-actively foster partnership between HKBU and the commercial and industrial sectors, and support our staff in knowledge transfer (STEM and non-STEM), both locally and in the Greater Bay Area (GBA). Apart from impact case studies, he/she will write research impact articles for the general public,in particular, he/she will be responsible for preparing a new research impact publication, which will be published online and offline bi-annually.
Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.
