City Innovation & Technology Grand Challenge organized by the Innovation & Technology Commission (ITC) engaged people from all walks of life, from across the world to submit innovative ideas and transform them into impactful solutions. A series of workshops and training, such as Design Thinking, Entrepreneurship and Scenario Analysis, as well as a wide range of thematic talks by the industries were held during the Grand Challenge.
In this competition, two IT and one Hospitality teams from VTC obtained the Innovation Awards and received a total of HK$90,000 cash prize in the University /Tertiary Institute group.
Among the teams, IT(LWL) was one of the top 3 teams entering the Grand Final Pitch in the University/Tertiary Institute Group to present the ideas to Chief Executive, Secretary of Innovation & Technology, and 600 audiences in the Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks on 16 Oct 2021.

The achievement of the student teams is really a big encouragement to the teaching teams involved.
