The Smart CUHK Challenge provides an experimentation platform and resources to support students and staff to propose innovative solutions for building a smart, green and sustainable campus.
CUHK launched The Smart CUHK Challenge to provide members of the University with opportunities for knowledge transfer, education and engagement.
The Smart CUHK Challenge provides resources and a platform to experiment with new ideas and encourage members of the University to:
(a) play an active role in addressing scientifically challenging problems related to the building of a smart campus and proposing innovative solutions using a multidisciplinary approach; and
(b) share their findings and creations to spark discussion and debate and inspire action, ideally involving the wider community to create two-way interaction, to provide external perspectives and to make a difference in the community.
The Smart CUHK Challenge will:
(a) set up a funding scheme in the format of a college-based ‘Smart Campus Solutions Competition’, to help students innovate and undertake projects in line with the vision of a smart CUHK campus;
(b) organize knowledge-exchange events, such as seminars, workshops and sharing sessions; and
(c) implement publicity plans and activities to promote the smart campus initiative to the wider community and inspire change through action by highlighting success stories.
The smart university campus will serve as a living laboratory for researchers to transfer the knowledge they create and for students to learn about and explore new ideas. It will also encourage all campus users to engage deeply with campus life.
The Smart CUHK Challenge will provide an opportunity for those who are interested in the topic to play an active role in addressing scientifically challenging problems related to the building of a smart campus. It will provide a two-way platform for CUHK students and staff to interact with the community and realize the responsibility of tertiary institutions to conduct research and scholarship by offering innovative, relevant smart living solutions for application beyond the campus boundaries to make a difference in the community.
