The Central Research Facilities (CRFs) provide researchers access to shared advanced research equipment and highly skilled technical expertise to use these specialized instruments. They are a pillar of the University’s research infrastructure and play a vital and integral role in our multidisciplinary approach.

CRFs in HKUST (GZ) do not overlap with those in HKUST in terms of major equipment. While open to other universities and industry, the CRFs serve as technology platforms supporting researchers in both Universities, fostering a conducive environment for collaboration and engagement with industry in the Greater Bay Area and worldwide. ​
