InnoCarnival displays tech successes

InnoCarnival 2023, organised by the Innovation & Technology Commission, opened today at the Science Park and will run until November 5.


Under the theme “Go Smart! Go Tech! Go Green!”, this year’s event features exhibits representing local innovation and technology (I&T) achievements.


Officiating at the opening ceremony, Financial Secretary Paul Chan said that cultivating I&T talent and fostering an environment in the community that is conducive to I&T have been vital to boosting Hong Kong’s I&T development.


He told carnival attendees that the Government’s efforts to proactively attract strategic enterprises have brought an inflow of companies and talent, helping the Greater Bay Area to become a world-class international I&T centre.


He also noted that the Chief Executive had proposed a range of measures in his latest Policy Address to foster I&T development, and said these could help accelerate the commercialisation of research and development outcomes, as well as the development of I&T industrialisation.


In terms of green technology, Mr Chan pointed out that Hong Kong has nurtured high-quality green tech enterprises which have now expanded their operations overseas.


Supported by over 50 partners, the carnival features around 40 booths showcasing Hong Kong’s I&T achievements and offering attractions such as interactive games.


Some 150 workshops and over 30 webinars are being staged, with the aim of showing the public the relevance of I&T in daily life, and inspiring young people to pursue knowledge in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) subjects.


All activities are free of charge, although some require pre-registration.
