The InnoHK Launch Ceremony was held yesterday, May 25, marking a milestone in the government’s commitment to promote Hong Kong’s innovation and technology (I&T). As the flagship initiative, InnoHK aims to promote research collaboration to put the city on the global advanced technology map.
Addressing the ceremony, Chief Executive Carrie Lam said, “With our solid foundation in research and a good number of world-renowned experts, Hong Kong could better leverage its strengths in life and health sciences. I thus proposed, in my 2021 Policy Address delivered last October, to set up an InnoLife Healthtech Hub at the Lok Ma Chau Loop Hong Kong-Shenzhen I&T Park.”
“To follow through on this initiative, the Government Budget this year has earmarked another $10 billion for further promoting life and health technology development, ranging from hardware, research talents and clinical trials to data application,” she added.
Spearheaded by the Innovation and Technology Commission, the initiative has received an overwhelming response from world-renowned universities and research institutions since its inception.
