CUHK State Key Laboratories

The State Key Laboratory (SKL) Scheme is an important component of the national innovation system in China. It was launched in the early 1990s under the purview of the Ministry of Science and Technology of China. The Scheme coordinates high quality infrastructural research and applied infrastructural research, draws together and nurtures accomplished scientists, and serves as a platform for high level academic exchange. SKLs are mainly attached to the research institutes of the Chinese Academy of Sciences or key universities all over China. There are five SKLs set up in CUHK.
