InnoTech Month 2017: Introducing "InnoForce" to promote innovation culture to community
The Innovation and Technology Commission (ITC) today (September 30) launched the InnoTech Month (ITM) 2017 with a range of exciting activities to promote a culture of innovation and technology (I&T) to the community.
To commemorate the 20th anniversary of the establishment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, the ITM 2017 has specially designed a promotional truck – "InnoForce". "InnoForce" will go around the territory for two weeks (from today to October 13), allowing members of the public to better understand "Robotics", "Smart Living" and "Healthy Ageing" and how I&T could improve their daily life through trying out the fun-filled virtual reality (VR) game and activities on the truck.
"InnoCarnival 2017", which is the anchor event of ITM 2017, will be held at the Hong Kong Science Park from October 21 (Saturday) to October 29 (Sunday). Carrying the theme of "Live Smart．Be Innovative", the event will provide an opportunity to the public to appreciate an array of creative inventions and research achievements of local universities, Research and Development centres, professional bodies and technology institutions in a range of activities such as exhibitions, workshops, seminars, guided tours and so on. McMug will continue to be the ambassador for this year's InnoCarnival. All activities are free of charge; and members of the public are invited to join.
The InnoCarnival 2017 is organised by the ITC with the support of Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups and the Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation as campaign partners and another some 70 programme partners.
