Commitment of the University

deco

Sustainable and smart are two elements that work exceptionally well together. Sustainability is a powerful set of concepts that can highlight a brighter future. However, it needs pioneering actions and technologies to unwrap the vast potential of a sustainable world. Smart represents that pioneering spirit, but needs the guardrails of sustainability to ensure positive impacts that improve our lives and our environment. Using our own university as a test-bed for research and testing new ideas, we embrace the framework of using our campus as a living lab, valuing the inputs of our very own community.

The HKUST Sustainable Smart Campus as a Living Lab is the combined effort of teams, where the mixture of ideas of people from different disciplines and backgrounds germinate the seeds of innovation. Through trial and error, revising, tweaking, and always being open to new ideas, the projects are never quite finished; rather they are works in progress, and a true reflection of the spirit of our HKUST community.
