Special Fund



Shanghai Shutong Hadal Science and Technology Development Foundation (can be simply called Hadal Foundation) was approved by Domestic Business Bureau of Shanghai Municipal Government in December 2014. The mission of the Hadal Foundation is to promote hadal science and technology and to protect the ocean environment. It is a platform to receive some donations from those who concern the sustainability of the society. The fund is mainly used to support the researches focused in this area and award those who make great contributions to the progress of hadal science and technology. It will also be used to transfer the knowledge of the latest development of hadal science and technology to general public in order to enhance their scientific literacy and promote the marine ecological protection and sustainable development of human beings. The foundation was initiated by Professor Weicheng Cui and his several close friends. In order to keep it running, Professor Weicheng Cui monthly donates two-thirds of his salary from Shanghai Ocean University to the foundation. To move forward, Hadal Foundation needs more support and fund and you are welcome to join us.
