Faculty Knowledge Exchange Award 2011

In 2011, the Medical Faculty launched the inaugural Faculty Knowledge Exchange (KE) Award. The Award aims to recognise our Faculty Member’s outstanding KE accomplishments that have made a significant impact to benefit the community, business/industry, or partner organisations. Such impact should have been achieved through an effective engagement process to transfer or exchange quality knowledge that was based on excellence in research or in teaching and learning of the University.
