Joint Research Centre for Language and Human Complexity

CUHK, Peking University, and University System of Taiwan have jointly established the Chinese University of Hong Kong–Peking University–University System of Taiwan Joint Research Centre for Language and Human Complexity. A new platform of collaboration, the centre is the first cross-strait joint research centre to examine human complexity from the perspective of language.

Prof. Wang Enge (centre), President of Peking University; Prof. Ovid Tzeng (right), President of University System of Taiwan (UST); and Prof. Joseph J.Y. Sung (left), Vice-Chancellor of CUHK, officiated at the inauguration ceremony.

The centre will further enhance the partnership of the three universities in the areas of language and human complexity, constructing a more systemized and solid research base across the strait. It will also conduct field work and laboratory experiments to examine human nature, aiming to deepen our understanding of the biological basis of language and the acquisition of native language and second languages, and to further assist in the treatment of language disorders such as aphasia, alexia, aging-related language degradation.
