Organised by the Innovation and Technology Commission together with the Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation, the first City I&T Grand Challenge was launched today (December 18). In light of the new normal under the epidemic, the theme of the competition this year is "Innovating for Hong Kong's New Normal" and invites all sectors of the community to put forward innovation and technology (I&T) solutions focusing on two issues, namely environmental sustainability and social connectivity, to tackle problems facing the city and people in their daily lives. A series of workshops and other activities will also be held to create an I&T atmosphere in the whole community.
The City I&T Grand Challenge is open for application from today till April 24, 2021. Target participants range from primary and secondary school students to local and non-local tertiary students, I&T enterprises, R&D teams and entrepreneurs. Winners will be awarded a cash prize and a trophy. For the winners of the University and Open categories, they will also have a chance to receive R&D resources and training for refining their I&T solutions for trying at a designated venue such as a government department or a public organisation.
The website of the City I&T Grand Challenge has been launched for the public to submit applications. A host of workshops, seminars and training activities will also be organised to introduce knowledge on technologies and entrepreneurship as well as topical daily life issues. All are welcome to join. Details are available at the event website (citytechgc.hk).
