There has been increasing attention to how the development of the Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macau Greater Bay Area (GBA) will strengthen innovation and integration for social and economic development of the region. From an educational perspective, GBA’s higher education system can contribute to sustainable development in fulfilling the specific demands of the industry in a knowledge economy, as well as increasing educational opportunities for underserved communities in fostering common goods. In the coming series of zoom forums, the researchers will share their findings and insights based on their articles to be published in the Special Issue of Asian Education and Development Studies, guest edited by Prof. Gerard Postiglione and Dr Alice Te. This first forum serves to shed light on the strategic role which can be played by Hong Kong’s world-class universities and the international academic profession in the regionalization of innovation systems in the GBA. The expected opportunities and challenges offered by the GBA policy initiatives will also be explored. On the other side, whether the universities in the GBA have provided adequate and sought-after talent pool in fulfilling the industrial growth of the region will be investigated. The complementarity between regions of the GBA is reflected through an empirical study which shows the correlation between university discipline and industrial structure in Shenzhen, Hong Kong and Macau.
