To strengthen leadership education, service and service leadership in Hong Kong, a pioneer project, the Fung Service Leadership Initiative, was launched at eight Hong Kong institutions in 2012. With the sponsorship of Victor and William Fung Foundation and the support of Hong Kong Institute of Service Leadership and Management Limited, the Principle Investigator and scholars of each institution designed their unique pedagogy and conducted related research for the project. On January 6-7, 2016, a concluding conference will be held at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University and the eight institutions will share their project outcomes and research results with the public.
