Faith and Science in Hong Kong


Science and religion have had a long and complex relationship over thousands of years. Their engagement is shaped by factors inherent to the areas of scientific and religious activity involved, as well as by the historical and cultural contexts. Academic scientists in Hong Kong are more religious than the general population, and yet the political, religious and scientific history of the region means that engagement between science and religion here is relatively in its infancy. In this setting, the Faith and Science Collaborative Research Forum seeks to develop and enrich the interactions between religion and science/engineering research in Hong Kong.
