We are pleased to once again announce that the SciTech Challenge will take place in Hong Kong, opening this March. Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks will be organising the contest, in joined hands, with Arrow Electronics, one of the Asia-Pacific's leading electronic component distributors.

 

SciTech Challenge is a competition open for innovators to pitch their products, through workshops and mentorship accelerate progress in their idea-to-development-to-prototype-to-production stages. > Bring ideas into realisation

 

This year, SciTech Challenge 2018, with the topic on Home Care, anticipates a wide range of potential ideas and products to solve some of the many daily life situations of patients with special-needs.

Where supply meets demand, key is to understand the needs and conditions of patients in order to explore applicable products. HKCSS[香港社會服務聯會] and Shatin Hospital will be supporting SciTech Challenge 2018, by revealing first hand insights and experience on handling post-surgery and special-needs patients.
