Grooming the next generation of technology talents is one of the biggest challenges facing Hong Kong. ASTRI, the largest applied R&D institution in the city, takes on this challenge as part of its overall mission to enhance Hong Kong’s competitiveness in the technology-based sectors. A great milestone to that end accomplished today with ASTRI partnering with HKU Space.
