Professor Victor Wong



Professor Victor Wong is currently working on the following two funded research projects:  

  • Principal Investigator (Community): Community-based interventions of career and life adventure planning for youth, 2015-2020, funded by the Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust (HKBU/HKJCCT-33-14-211, HK$62,348,769). This project housed at HKBU is part of the Career and Life Adventure Planning project (CLAP for Youth @ JC) which is Hong Kong’s first cross-sectoral support platform that helps students and non-engaged youth navigate their futures. This five-year programme develops an evidence-based intervention model, professional career and life planning teams, a one-stop e-portal and parent and employer engagement – all to foster an enabling environment to create a new paradigm with a new discourse on work, success and talent match. CLAP was launched in May 2015 with a HK$500 million donation funded by The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust. Click onto the following link for details of the project:
  • Principal Investigator: A study of the role of collective psychological ownership in the relationship between work conditions and workplace well-being among young adult social workers, funded by the Research Grants Council of Hong Kong, 2020-2022 (HKBU/GRF/12600819, HK$1,613,252). The focus of this research study is to examine work conditions and psychological factors which may lead to a positive state of workplace well-being such as work engagement and negative states such as burnout and health problems among young adult social workers aged 21-29 in four Chinese cities: Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Hong Kong.
