Overarching Research Themes

Overarching Research Themes

CityU believes research should not be concluded in isolation and shared only within small professional circles.

Rather, it should be seen by the public and have a positive impact on the world. The following three overarching research themes were identified specifically for this purpose to enhance our capacity to respond to the academic and societal challenges in our highly interconnected world.

As the human health and animal health are getting more and more interdependent, CityU adopts and promotes the “One Health” approach to design measures to safeguard public health and to respond to this global challenge. Under the overarching theme of One Health, CityU aims to develop and integrate interdisciplinary, problem-based research collaborations and communications in all aspects of health-related issues.
