About Doctoral Exchange

Doctoral Exchange is a public interest research collective founded in 2010 by a group of doctoral students and graduates with a shared respect for Hong Kong’s heritage of excellence and a common conviction in the city’s continuing role on the global stage. Regular meetings are held to discuss the latest hot topics and explore innovative solutions to entrenched challenges. The founding members, with expertise and professional training in disciplines ranging from architecture, urban planning, finance, logistics and education, and creative industries, are committed to conducting research without ideological or political biases in order to identify pragmatic, outside-the-box solutions for complex issues of concern to the community. Such an approach is desperately needed as the current space for public dialogue and deliberation has been dominated by special interest obstructionism, fanned by politicians and a media contingent bent on sensationalism rather than clarifying the issues for the public they serve.


博匯是一個成立於二零一零年、由一群博士生及博士畢業生組成的智庫組織,聚集了一眾對香港的成就引以為傲,並冀望使這個城市在國際舞台上繼續閃耀的熱心成員。 博匯定期舉行會議,對香港的各種議題和社會面對的挑戰進行討論,務求突破固有框架,從香港長遠利益出發,尋找創新而可行的解決方案。博匯的成員來自不同界別,包括建築、城市規劃、金融、物流、教育和創意產業,我們以專業知識與豐富經驗,就社會民生議題作務實客觀的探討。博匯認為,現時部分政治團體維護小眾利益,以及部分媒體偏頗報導,窒礙了社會邁向公平公開的理性討論。我們相信實事求是的理性溝通和客觀分析能為公眾提供一個更具意義的思考平台。
