Hong Kong Science Park to host Innovation and Technology Carnival 2023

The Innovation and Technology Carnival 2023, organized by the Innovation and Technology Commission (ITC), will be held at the Hong Kong Science Park from October 28 to November 5. A total of 38 booths will be set up to showcase a wide range of local innovations and scientific research achievements, including smart sponges and 5G cloud robotic systems. There will also be about 150 workshops on different themes, and members of the public can participate in all the activities free of charge.

This year's InnoCarnival 2023, with the theme of "Smart Living Green Technology", was supported by 50 partners. 38 booths were set up at the venue to showcase a wide range of local innovations and scientific research achievements, and some of the booths were equipped with interactive games.

The organizer also held a press preview today (26), which was also attended by the Commissioner for Innovation and Technology, Mr. Bunny Lee, who said that the promotion of a culture of innovation and technology is one of the key areas of work of the Innovation and Technology Commission (ITC).

A preview of some of the participating teams' R&D projects will be displayed, with representatives of the teams introducing the origin of their ideas, the R&D process, features, functions and applications of their works, including the "Smart Sponge" developed by the City University of Hong Kong, which is a multi-functional, selective oil-absorbent sponge that can be used in a wide range of environments, including aquaculture filtration systems, household grease cleaning and cleaning of oil in salty and freshwater areas.

The 5G Cloud Robotic System, developed by the Hong Kong Applied Science and Technology Research Institute (ASTRI), combines advanced 5G, cloud computing and robotic technologies to autonomously navigate in complex environments and perform delicate tasks, thereby increasing efficiency and productivity while reducing human intervention and risk.

Students from Chung Wah Foundation Secondary School were also introduced to the "Walking Plastic, Waxing Action", a project developed by the Foundation. The students also introduced their development of "Beeswax Action", which uses beeswax, rosin and soya bean residue as raw materials for 3D printing instead of plastic. The invention won an award in the 25th Hong Kong Youth Science and Technology Innovation Competition organized by the Hong Kong New Generation Cultural Society.
