SUMMARY : HKBU's hi-tech inventions achieved magnificent results at the 44th International Exhibition of Inventions of Geneva held in Switzerland from 13 to 17 April 2016. The HKBU entries won the Grand Prix International Invention Award, three Gold Medals and two Special Mention Medals.

The top prize of the event, the Grand Prix Award (also named the International Invention Award), went to the ultra-hard anti-scratch cover for touch screen devices invented by the team led by Professor Cheah Kok-wai, Chair Professor of the Department of Physics. This invention also received the Gold Medal in the Industrial Processes Category and the Special Award For The Invention.

The second winning invention was the autologous neural stem cell harvest technologies developed by the team led by Professor Ken Yung of the Department of Biology. This innovative personalised neurological disorder therapy using magnetic-tagged neural stem cells pulled from live brains of animals won the Gold Medal in the Surgery Category and the Award for High Scientific and Technological Level of the Invention.

In addition, the novel patented laser technology for artwork and antique authentication invented by the team led by Professor Cheung Nai-ho of the Department of Physics won the Gold Medal in Computer Sciences Category. Unlike conventional laser ablative microprobes, this HKBU-patented technique causes no visible damage to art work even under a high-magnification microscope.
