On 23 February 2017, the awarding ceremony of 2016 Young Researcher Award took place at the International Institute of Macau. The award aims to be an incentive to young students, teachers, graduates and creatives to research and further study for the sake of the development of the Macau’s Special Administrative Region’s development – in the strategic sectors of economy and diversification, heritage and identity, applied sciences, and Macau History. The prize, together with a diploma and a monetary award of twenty five thousand Patacas, has been attributed since 2001 and the objective is to stimulate young generations, where its focus is to diversify social intervention, create opportunities and expand the growth of knowledge.

In the current year, through this accomplished competition, the award was given to Loi Wai Cheng, in the area of Social Sciences, a work about “The Impact of Social Support on the Mental Health of the Visually Impaired in Macao”; and Lei Ka Meng, in the area of Applied Sciences, with the work titled “Miniaturized Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Platforms for Chemical/ Biological Assays with Customized CMOS Integrated Circuits”. During the session, Secretary-General of IIM, Rufino Ramos, has made an incentive to the participants to dedicate their time in the investigation regarding themes about Macau and contribute as well for social and cultural development. The competition of 2016 was very competitive, with about thirty two works received and analyzed by two academic teachers, Mok Kai Meng and Chan Ka Wai.

 

For this year, the competition will soon be promoted. Stay tuned!
