HKSAR ICT Awards 2018 - Smart Mobility Award

Background

The Hong Kong ICT Awards aims at recognising and promoting outstanding information and communications technology (ICT) inventions and applications, thereby encouraging innovation and excellence among Hong Kong’s ICT talents and enterprises in their constant pursuit for creative and better solutions to meet business and social needs.

 

The Hong Kong ICT Awards was established in 2006 with the collaborative efforts of the industry, academia and the Government. Steered by the Office of the Government Chief Information Officer and organised by 8 Hong Kong ICT industry associations and professional bodies, the Awards aims at building a locally espoused and internationally acclaimed brand of ICT awards.

 

There are eight categories under the Hong Kong ICT Awards 2018. There will be one Grand Award in each category, and an “Award of the Year” will be selected from the eight Grand Awards by the Grand Judging Panel.
 

 

Objectives

1. Building Hong Kong as Smart City with novice ICT applications 

Mobility and transport are essential if a city is to function properly. There cannot be a smart city without Smart Mobility. A smart city should be connected and citizen-centric, which is accessible to visitors and residents, travelling and moving goods across the city trouble-free, bringing citizens and visitors more convenience, better quality of lives, more sustainable power usage, higher level of safety and city competitiveness. The objective of the award programme is to encourage more designs and development of applications leveraging the integration of Internet-of-Things (“IoT”), big data and analytics, as well as mobile applications, which will enhance the flow of people, goods, and tourists; improve citizens' and visitors’ experience; and enable smart mobility for a smarter Hong Kong. 

2. Championing HK as Hub for IT Talents, Creativity and Innovations

The Award programme will serve as a platform to facilitate the community to have a dynamic and transparent exchange of expertise with renowned ICT professionals, to sparkle and co-create innovative ideas, and to nurture technology talents. GS1 HK will also nominate appropriate winners to participate at other regional and global awards competition.
We hope that through these recognising and nurturing initiatives, it will further stimulate creativity. 

3. Inspiring Local Industry Adoption 

Innovation and technology are drivers for economic growth and the key to enhance business competitiveness. Award winning cases attest to successful implementation, helping users in Transport, Logistics and Tourism understand the value of smart business applications, encouraging industry adoption, creating a mutually beneficial interaction between technology and business sectors, which leads to a sustainable eco-system of technology-driven new business paradigm.
