The Electrical and Mechanical Services Department (EMSD) was invited to join the 40th meeting of the Business Facilitation Advisory Committee (BFAC) held on 28 August 2019 to give a briefing on how the E&M InnoPortal facilitates the application of innovation and technology (I&T) in the Government in collaboration with the I&T sector.
The E&M InnoPortal collects from government departments, public organisations and the electrical and mechanical trade their needs for various technologies for the I&T sector, including start-ups and academic institutions, to offer corresponding I&T solutions to match such needs. The E&M InnoPortal not only promotes the commercialisation of the results of research and development, but also facilitates government departments and public organisations in identifying I&T solutions through the application of new technologies, thus promoting the development of a smart city.
The BFAC appreciated the EMSD's efforts in promoting I&T development, facilitating the application of I&T in the Government and enhancing public service through launching of the E&M InnoPortal.
