CINTEC always serves as the bridge between the Faculty and the industry to promote communications, facilitate collaboration and foster technology transfer.

In 2010, CINTEC initiated and formed the CUHK Open Innovation Network (COIN). COIN is a platform for industrial organizations to leverage on the research strength of CUHK to innovate their businesses based on an open innovation model.

To facilitate the exploration in open innovation, we offer the following services to COIN members:

  • Limited number of free consultancy hours on technical subjects
  • Invitation to attend regular seminars disseminating CUHK innovations
  • Receive newsletters updating on CUHK innovations, global technology trends and events
  • Free services to assist employers to organize recruitment activities on campus, for hiring student interns or graduates

CINTEC could also help in arranging visit to the laboratories or projects that the member is interested or meeting with the research team to explore the collaboration opportunity.

Membership of COIN and the above-mentioned services are free-of-charge.

Please email to or contact our staff by phone: 3943 8221 if you have any query.
