Chair, JUCC50 Organizing Committee
CIO & University Librarian, Lingnan UniversityWelcome to the new website of JUCC 50th anniversary.
Incorporated in 1970, JUCC has grown from the initial two core members comprising the computer centres of University of Hong Kong and the Chinese University of Hong Kong to eight full members from UGC-funded universities and 11 other affiliated members from the Higher Education sector in Hong Kong and Macau. Throughout the past 5 decades, JUCC has successfully established itself as the platform for fostering deep collaborations among higher education member institutions and facilitating research via advanced network, an exemplary project is the establishment of HARNET. Besides collaboration in networking facilities, JUCC also promotes cooperation in the development of the Blockchain Platform for Certificate Verification and established the Leadership Institute for training of IT professionals.
To celebrate the many achievements of JUCC and to look forward to more development in the future, the JUCC50 Organizing Committee was formed in 2019 to organize a series of celebratory events. I am honoured to work with Dr Samuel Kwan, ITSC Director of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Mr John Hui, CIO of the Education University of Hong Kong, and the JUCC staff for drawing up the celebratory events, which has started in 2019. The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic has created some challenges to our programs, yet with the concerted efforts of JUCC50 Organizing Committee, they were tackled in innovative ways.
Last but not the least, I would like to express my great gratitude to the Sponsorship Committee led by Mr John Hui. I would also like to thank the great support from our industry partners and vendors, without them, many of our initiatives would not be possible.
The details of each celebratory program are captured in this website. I look forward to the active participation of all JUCC members.
