Central Leader - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE -

The Univer­sity of Auck­land will re­ceive $5 mil­lion in dona­tions from the Li Ka Shing Foun­da­tion. The do­na­tion is for the univer­sity’s Cam­paign For All Our Fu­tures pro­gramme which sup­ports in­no­va­tion and en­trepreneur­ship, and en­cour­ages phi­lan­thropy. The Li Ka Shing Foun­da­tion wants to sup­port the univer­sity as a hub of in­no­va­tion in the Asia Pa­cific re­gion through its Cen­tre for In­no­va­tion and En­trepreneur­ship and other pro­grammes at the Busi­ness School. The Foun­da­tion, set up in 1980 by lead­ing Hong Kong en­tre­pre­neur and phi­lan­thropist Li Ka-shing, seeks to en­hance so­ci­etal im­prove­ment through sup­port­ing ed­u­ca­tion and health­care ini­tia­tives. A Li Ka Shing In­no­va­tion Fund will be set up to drive teach­ing and re­search re­lated to in­no­va­tion and en­trepreneur­ship.
