    We can make our university better by creating a “smart campus.” This means we can make our campus more sustainable, innovative, and healthy. This will help us make a better future. We can do this with the help of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). I hope you have some ideas for creating a Smart Campus with Smart Learning, Smart Living, and Smart Saving aspects through our HSUHK Innovation Project Competition 2023. And I believe your ideas will shine via the competition!

    Mr Nathan LAM, Solution Consulting Manager from DIGIQAL, will be coming to share his ideas about new technologies that can help make campuses smarter. He will also talk about how to make good pitches for new technologies. He has a lot of experience in designing and building digital solutions, specializing in Supply Chain, Retail, Public and Government Sectors. Before joining DIGIQAL, Nathan worked at PCCW Solutions, Fujitsu HK and Tyco Solutions. He is knowledgeable about the latest trends in technology.

    This workshop will teach you how to use new technology to make learning more interactive, make campuses more accessible, and make campuses more environmentally friendly.
