Delighted to receive a HK$391,464 (approximately US$50,000) General Research Fund from the Hong Kong Research Grants Council for my proposal to examine solvers’ adoption of feedback in crowd-based innovation tournaments.
My project proposal for HK Research Grants Council’s Early Career Scheme (ECS) has gone through successfully. This project focuses on the use of crowd-based contests to acquire graphic designs. Specifically, I plan to examine how the heterogeneity among contestants and in the information provided by contest clients affect the attributes and performances of the design submissions. This project is an extension of my research in crowd-based design contests.
The ECS is for PIs who are in their first three years as Assistant Professor in HK institutions, and I’m glad to be successful in my first attempt applying for this “rookie” grant. I’m also happy for my colleagues whose grant applications went through as well.
