大灣區戰略新思維-「大灣區的科技生態及香港應用科技研究院的應對戰略」Strategic New Thinking – Technology Ecosystem in GBA and ASTRI’s Strategy


Professor Toa Charm


Denis Yip


Astri, Science Park

The GBA Business School has organized a webinar yesterday (14 December) on “Technology Ecosystem in GBA and ASTRI’s Strategy”. It has been our honor to have Dr. Denis Yip, CEO of ASTRI as the keynote speaker with Dr. Toa Charm to be the moderator. Together, they gave a fruitful and inspiring discussion about the mission of ASTRI on the tech industry in GBA and how Hong Kong can seize the emerging opportunities. At the webinar, Dr. Yip expounded on the I&T opportunities in the GBA and ASEAN in the next 5 years and how Hong Kong, being one of the core cities in the GBA, can be the hub of Innovation and Technology (I&T). In view of the opportunities, ASTRI regards nurturing talents is of utmost importance. “Hong Kong need to identify where our I&T market is.” Dr. Yip explicated how ASTRI is enabling a smarter GBA through collaboration, commercialization, and innovative strategy. In the talk, he spelled out the innovation landscape in Hong Kong and the GBA, Hong Kong’s advantages due to its excellent start-up infrastructure, and more. He also pointed out how the technology ecosystem in the West and the East is expanding through opportunities brought by the “Metaverse”. He strongly believed the GBA will develop into an engine driving a sustainable start-up ecosystem and fostering widespread business dynamism. He reiterated that ASTRI will continue to improve its development strategies – from technology transfer to talent cultivation to collaboration with Mainland China – to further develop Hong Kong into the world’s premier technology hub. He concluded, “If you only think of Hong Kong, you can never be a unicorn.” 12月14日,大灣區商學院在香港科學園舉辦了一個網上研討會,探討大灣區的科技生態及香港應用科技研究院的應對戰略。今次本院有幸邀請了香港應用科技研究院有限公司行政總裁葉成輝博士主講這個專題,由OpenCertHub主席湛家揚博士主持,在席上暢談和分享了香港應用科技研究院在粵港澳大灣區的使命,及香港在這個新機遇之下如何配合。 葉博士闡述香港作為大灣區的其中一個核心城市,可利用這次機遇,成為區內的科技及創新中心;香港應用科技研究院可積極協助培育科技人才,透過合作、商業化項目和創新策略,推廣大灣區在科技創新及應用。現時香港已具備成熟的創新和科技環境,並已有一套成熟的基礎建設,充份利用了中西融合的優勢,這將有助香港成為灣區內的初創引擎,令商業活動更蓬勃。他總結:「若你希望成為科技獨角獸,便須放眼更大的市場。」
