About The CY Tung International Centre for Maritime Studies
With the passion for creating a world-class heartland of maritime studies, education and consultancy in the Asian region, the Department of Logistics and Maritime Studies (LMS) at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) established the International Centre for Maritime Studies (ICMS) in 2005.
Developed under PolyU's Area of Strategic Development (ASD), Scheme, ICMS is the first of its kind in Hong Kong.
The founding of ICMS also underlines the determination of PolyU and the Department to play an essential role in supporting China's 11th Five-Year Plan which has identified logistics as a major strategic direction of national economy and its commitment to the development of three major logistics and portal regions (i.e. Pearl River Delta, Yangzi River Delta, and Bo-Hai Gulf). At the same time, ICMS strives for supporting Hong Kong to reinforce its role as a world-renowned international maritime Centre.
Since its establishment, ICMS has actively conducted various activities in the well-defined strategic areas, including research, teaching and consultancy, with encouraging results accomplished. In 2007, ICMS was named after the late Mr CY Tung as the C.Y. Tung International Centre for Maritime Studies (董浩雲國際海事研究中心), in appreciation of a pledge of HK$10 million from The Tung Foundation for the Centre's further advancement.
With the generous donation, ICMS undertook an expansion in the academic year of 2007/2008. Resided on the PolyU campus, the renovated Centre engages an area of approximately 530 square metres on the 4/F of CD Wing. With enhanced facilities, it gears towards providing maritime resources and support for the Department's students, academics, industrial partners and the maritime community as a whole.
