The Center for Innovation, Design & Entrepreneurship (abbreviation “CIDE”)
In response to Shenzhen government’s call to vigorously promote the mass entrepreneurship and innovation and build a system of incubation service for innovation and entrepreneurship in schools, the “Galaxy WORLD Chinese University of Hong Kong(Shenzhen) innovation and entrepreneurship base”, which was jointly constructed by The Chinese University of Hong Kong(Shenzhen) and Galaxy Group, was officially put into operation in the autumn of 2015.

Relying on the resources of our school and Galaxy Group, it helps teachers and students carry out entrepreneurial activities, creates an active "customer flow" and an innovative and entrepreneurial atmosphere with investment value.
