The Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks agency has launched a City Challenge competition where citizens’ ideas will be sought in five areas – integrated transport, energy reduction, generation and efficiency, waste management, digital public services and smart homes.

The participants have to show how Internet of Things, ICT and environmentally-friendly technologies can be used.

“Interested individuals do not have to be a skilled professional to enter the competition because we will provide training for the necessary practical skills. All they need is a great idea and the desire to make a positive impact on Hong Kong,” said an official.

The government will train shortlisted participants through workshops on product design, app development, maker skills and presentations.

The winning prototypes and ideas will be announced on June 25. They will get prizes worth a total of $52,000. They could also be offered internships by companies in the city’s science park or be admitted into the agency’s startup incubation programme.
