How would you like Hong Kong to be in the future?
Our city is faced with different kinds of challenges. Will knowledge, creativity and applied technology bring a different future to us?
If you have an idea on how to turn Hong Kong into a smart city, join us in City Challenge – Bridge to a Smarter City. In technology and creativity we trust, let’s disrupt today and build a better tomorrow.
The Competition comprises three groups and welcomes all Hong Kong citizens to participate.
Organised by Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation, City Challenge – Bridge to a Smarter City is the first and ever territory-wide competition inviting all citizens and students in Hong Kong to come up with innovative and technology-based applications to turn our city into a smarter and better place to live.
INNOVATION INTEGRATION + RESOURCE SHARING = EFFICIENCY + LIVABILITY + SUSTAINABLE CITY DEVELOPMENT
A city is SMART when the allocation and deployment of its social resources is done efficiently through the extensive adoption of solutions and applications sprung from IoT (Internet of Things), ICT (Information and Communications Technology) and environmental-friendly technology. This leads to a more livable and sustainable city environment where its citizens can enjoy enhanced living quality and a much more convenient lifestyle.
