About City I&T Grand Challenge
Organised by the Innovation and Technology Commission together with the Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation (HKSTP), the first City I&T Grand Challenge was launched on 18 December 2020.
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. It converges innovative ideas from Hong Kong and around the world to solve challenges in our city and create a better future.
The website of the City I&T Grand Challenge has been launched for the public to submit applications. A series 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.
It’s an innovation opportunity like no other. Everyone in the city is encouraged to take part in the inaugural City I&T Grand Challenge and come up with pioneering solutions to innovate Hong Kong’s new normal.
