Hong Kong ‘should tap research resources of mainland China’

Hong Kong-based researchers should no longer be blocked from getting funding from the government in mainland China, a prominent scientist and politician has said.

Nancy Ip, a neuroscientist and dean of science at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, has called for more cooperation between the autonomous territory of Hong Kong and the Chinese mainland.

Ip was one of 36 deputies representing Hong Kong at the Chinese National People’s Congress, which took place this month.
