ASTRI is committed to delivering world-class innovation to help develop Hong Kong into a premier technological hub. We develop technologies that can be transferred, commercialised and used across industries.
The five strategic focus areas are: Financial Technologies (FinTech), Smart City, Next Generation Network, Intelligent Manufacturing and Health Technologies. In addition, the CNERC Hong Kong Branch is the other key element of the strategy. Having its main centre in the Southeast University in Nanjing, the CNERC Hong Kong Branch is the first of its kind to be set up in the SAR. ASTRI is well-poised to cater to a wider range of technology needs and achieve more exposure while generating significant impact on the national level.
The five strategic focus areas and the CNERC Hong Kong Branch are interwoven to create synergy – together, they form a strong grid of ASTRI’s R&D focus and direction. We strive to cultivate high quality, affordable information and communications technologies that can make significant and far reaching contributions to businesses and the community. We also pursue research topics of substantial commercial impact in partnership with the public sector, academic and research institutions, and different industries, to enhance the competitiveness of enterprises in this region.
