Message from Founder & CHAIRMAN

Technology drives economic development. Science drives social development. We need to equip scientists and innovators with adequate resources so they can keep breaking through. 

A lot of people take technological and social progress for granted. These advancements, however, don’t happen overnight. Instead, lots of brains have been contributing relentlessly and silently behind these developments. Unfortunately, these efforts are often overlooked.   

We aim at making knowledge of SciTech more accessible and approachable to everyone. With better knowledge, we all will aspire to have a brighter future. I wish us all a brand new page soon coming with all these technological advancements!

Our Vision and Mission

Y-LOT (Y-LOT Foundation Limited)  is registered as a charitable organization under section 88 of the Inland Revenue Ordinance of Hong Kong (IR# 91/14991).

Y-LOT stands for ‘Youths. Love. Opportunities. Technology.’. It means Youths’ love of opportunities and technology.

We aim at making knowledge of Science and Technology more accessible and approachable to everyone. With better knowledge, we all will aspire to have a brighter future. At the same time, we focus on the education of young people, build a SciTech platform for them, and vigorously support the development of scientific research projects.

We also facilitate collaborations between researchers and innovators around the world through our platforms. With our long-term cooperations with different universities in Hong Kong and international research institutions, we seek to optimise the use of limited resources. So SciTech projects can be executed effectively and efficiently. 

Make it Happen, Y-LOT!
