111 Project

The international collaborative project "Marine Biogeochemistry and Ecotoxicology" (2007-2011) was funded through the Program of Introducing Talents of Discipline to Universities (known as the "111" Program), co-sponsored by the Ministry of Education and the State Administration of Foreign Experts. It has been renewed for a second funding term (2012-2016).

Led by Prof. George T.F. Wong (overseas) and Prof. Minhan Dai (MEL), The project focuses on marine biogeochemical processes and mechanisms. It provides MEL scientists, technicians, staff and students with an excellent platform for dynamic academic exchange and cooperation with overseas institutions. Thanks to this project, international and MEL scientists have formed strong partnerships for in depth collaborations. These collaborative activities have thus far included research, student exchanges, and technical and academic staff training with a number of international and regional institutions.
