Following on the success of our first Innovative Technology Day last December, EMSD co-organised the event once again with the HKSTP on 29 June this year at EMSD Headquarters. Ten start-ups from the Science Park were invited to present on specific topics and share their experiences with representatives from different government departments and public organisations. The aim is to promote the R&D results of local I&T start-ups. Officiating guest of the day Dr. David Chung, Under Secretary for Innovation and Technology, also officiated the launching ceremony of EMSD's inhouse developed E&M InnoPortal, an online platform which promotes I&T collaboration.
Mr. Sit Wing-hang, Director of Electrical and Mechanical Services, pointed out in his welcoming address that ever since the first Innovative Technology Day held in 2017, EMSD has been driving specific tasks to promote I&T. These included setting up an Inno-Office, coordinating support for start-up projects and EMSD's own technology developments; as well as setting up the E&M InnoPortal which aims to match the R&D results of start-ups and universities with the technological needs of government departments, public organisations and the E&M trade. In just three months, the E&M InnoPortal has accumulated more than 100 technological development needs and R&D solutions, covering the Internet of Things, automation technology, artificial intelligence and energy efficiency technologies. EMSD has also successfully matched more than 10 pilot projects with potential users – an encouraging number.
