According to a recent press release, cruising off of the increasing momentum of the innovation and technology (I&T) sector in the territory, the Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation (HKSTP) initiated a two-week event called “Work. Live. Play.”

This year’s event offers more touch points to stakeholders – local and overseas entrepreneurs and talent, investors and industry partners – to experience and appreciate the dynamic and vibrant I&T culture at Science Park.

From 21st March to 4th April, a series of engagement activities will be organised at the Park, including the inspiring a Smart City exhibition of real-life applications and ready-for-deployment solutions, a smart community and innovative construction technology showcase, as well as other experiential activities.

Productive Engagements

Over the next two weeks starting today, the I&T community in Hong Kong will gather at Science Park, to be inspired by others who share the same passion for I&T, and to witness how working, living and playing at Hong Kong’s largest I&T hub is like.

  • InnoXchange: This mind jam programme ignites new ideas, promotes insight-sharing and co-creation among Science Park partner companies with different technology areas and backgrounds, with a vision of putting the best brains together to seek collaborative opportunities for the future. These sessions are hosted by major luminaries in the tech industry. Topics to be discussed include AI/ IoT applications, biomedical and healthcare technology, blockchain technology, smart city solutions and other related areas.
  • Smart City Experience: Being a smart campus and a living laboratory, Science Park is the perfect venue to experiment with future living in a smart city. Throughout the two weeks, around 20 innovative solutions will be showcased to exemplify how various everyday societal challenges can be solved by innovation and technology.
  • TechibitionWith Science Park as the birthplace of numerous innovations, over 40 Park companies will display their solutions at the Park, illustrating the strength of Hong Kong’s I&T ecosystem, its potential as an international I&T hub, and to inspire more talent to join the I&T sector. The products on show are some of the best solutions from Hong Kong which won awards locally and overseas, ranging from prototypes to commercialised products.
  • InnoCell Prototype Roadshow: As a pioneering initiative to further foster the development of the I&T ecosystem, the InnoCell will be the upcoming on-site accommodation for local and overseas talent working at Science Park. The 17-storey building will demonstrate modern concepts of smart living and co-creation community, with innovative building technology applied in its construction – Modular Integrated Construction (MiC). Over the two weeks, the I&T community can visit the full-scale prototypes of the InnoCell units, enjoy a sneak preview of the communal area via virtual reality, as well as leveraging the opportunity to provide feedback and suggestions to jointly shape the future InnoCell.

A future empowered by I&T

HKSTP hosted an I&T-themed luncheon, offering guests a unique opportunity to savour various dishes made with innovative ingredients cultivated by Park companies. HKSTP’s management team also shared the latest developments and recent initiatives aimed at seizing new opportunities arising from the Greater Bay Area and to further support the growth of the I&T ecosystem.

The CEO of HKSTP stated that growing innovation, technology and entrepreneurship in Hong Kong has always been the Park’s goal, and the energy, excitement and vibrancy of the I&T ecosystem at the Park can certainly be felt even more today.

It is hoped that the efforts being made in demonstrating how the I&T community at Science Park works, lives and plays, and showcasing the successes of our partner companies, will manifest a passion for I&T and inspire more talent to come forward and participate.

The aim is to continue to cultivate a better future for Hong Kong, making good use of its resources to further accelerate the progress for the I&T ecosystem.

The Park recently announced the launch of the AI Plug@HKSTP and the Robotics Catalysing Centre 2.0 to strengthen the support for AI and robotics deployment.

With the InnoCell’s impending launch, HKSTP hopes to attract more local and overseas I&T talent to contribute to the R&D landscape here.

More initiatives will be rolled out later in the year as the Park is committed to offering the best-of-breed facilities and value-added services for Hong Kong’s I&T community.
