Description

The 4th Hong Kong Innovation Day (HKIA)

Project Title : Flexible Scoliosis Brace with Artificial Hinge

To nourish a culture of innovations in healthcare, the School of Nursing, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University and Good Seed are co-organising The 4th Hong Kong Innovation Day (HKIA).

HKIA is expected to stimulate innovative ideas and concepts that bring immediate benefits to the patients, clinicians as well as the healthcare industry. We cordially invite healthcare institutions (public or private), universities and colleges, as well as entities and small private enterprises focusing on health innovations in Hong Kong and the Greater Bay Area of China to submit their contributions regarding the solutions, discoveries and innovations in healthcare science to participate in The 4th Hong Kong Innovation Day.

The top three awards will consist of a trophy, a certificate and a cash prize. Outstanding team(s) selected by the jury at the Hong Kong Innovation Day will also join The Global Healthcare Innovation Day (GHID) to be held in Toronto, Canada in 2020 to compete for the Innovation for Health Award of Excellence.

Initially developed by leading healthcare organisations in Geneva, Switzerland, GHIA has grown into an international collaboration between Switzerland, Canada, and Hong Kong. The international event is to provide a platform that allows entrepreneurs, academics and healthcare professionals to showcase and promote their healthcare innovations, as well as to exchange ideas that benefit medical and healthcare sciences.
