HKCT Institute of Higher Education (HKCT) and Suzhou Automotive Research Institute, Tsinghua University held the academic seminar "Exploration of Human Factors Engineering in the Field of Sports and Health - Perspective from the Application of Traditional Chinese Medicine" on 11th January, 2024. The seminar brought together medical professors, scientists, scientific research team members, sports professionals, and others to integrate knowledge from different fields and discuss human factors engineering.
This is the first academic conference held after the establishment of the "Joint Laboratory for Aerospace Safety and Human Factors Engineering" by HKCT and Suzhou Automotive Research Institute, Tsinghua University last year. The seminar invited Nanjing University of Chinese Medicine, representative inheritor of Nanjing Intangible Cultural Heritage, Professor Zhang Gongyu, Deputy Director of the Aerospace Vehicle R&D Centre, pre-selected members of the 39th team and backup members of the 40th team of the Chinese Antarctic Research Expedition, Mr Sun Lu, as well as the Honorary Deputy Secretary General of the Sports Federation & Olympic Committee of Hong Kong, China and the Olympic Committee, and the Chairman of The Judo Association of Hong Kong, China, Mr WONG Po Kee, as speakers. The seminar was moderated by Mr KWOK Lam For, Head of the HKCT "Lion Rock Labs of Cyberspace Security". It was attended by guests and professional athletes from various fields such as technology, sports, and medicine.
During the seminar, Mr KWOK Lam For, Head of the HKCT "Lion Rock Labs of Cyberspace Security", pointed out that in 2023, the State Council issued the "Major Project Implementation Plan for the Revitalization and Development of Traditional Chinese Medicine," accelerating the construction of the innovation and modernization project for the inheritance of traditional Chinese medicine. The development of traditional Chinese medicine technology is closely related to the research of human factors engineering. "Through the establishment of the 'Joint Laboratory for Aerospace Safety and Human Factors Engineering,' we hope to leverage the advantages of the Hong Kong region, gather high-quality resources from home and abroad, strengthen the integration and development of human factors engineering with different industries and disciplines, promote research and innovation in human factors engineering in mainland China and Hong Kong, and build a highland for research and innovation in human factors engineering."
