HONG KONG - The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) government announced Friday that the 2020 edition of InnoCarnival will be held from Dec 23-31 virtually, which will showcase local innovations and research achievements and feature a series of InnoTech workshops and webinars.

The event, organized by the Innovation and Technology Commission of the HKSAR government, will run under the theme "Collaborate.Innovate.Beyond Imagination" this year.

A press preview held on Friday exhibited the research and development (R&D) projects of some of the participating teams with briefings from their representatives on the inspirations behind their work, the R&D process, and the features and application of the projects.

These projects included a Wearable Exoskeleton for Motion Assistance, developed by the Chinese University of Hong Kong, that helps paralysed patients stand and walk, and a Smart Automatic Parking System for Electric Vehicles developed by the Automotive Platforms and Application Systems R&D Centre that enables an unmanned electric vehicle to automatically navigate itself into a parking space.

Among the projects was also a Toilet Flushing Water Sanitization System developed by the Nano and Advanced Materials Institute that helps reduce bacteria and viruses in toilet flushing water through nano bubbles.

The Commissioner for Innovation and Technology Rebecca Pun told reporters that the HKSAR government has been dedicated to nurturing local innovation and technology (I&T) talents and promoting an I&T culture in the community.

Virtual InnoCarnival 2020 provides a one-stop platform to showcase the I&T achievements of local universities, R&D organizations, government departments, non-government organizations and technology enterprises, she said, which is also expected to ignite people's interest in innovation and technology.
