常見問題 FAQs

 

1) 我有兩個不同的項目在手,能否在今屆同時報名參加創新及創業兩個項目? 

 

答:可以,只要項目性質符合參賽資格。

If I hold two projects of Innovation and Entrepreneurship respectively, can I register the competition in both categories?

Yes, you are warmly welcomed! Please be reminded that each of the project is required to be under rules of particular category.

 

2) 如我的參賽作品是一件實物,是否須於截止交件日期(20/4/2018)遞交?

 

答:參賽作品實物毋須於初評展示或於截止交件日期遞交。如參賽作品能成功進入總評,參賽者須自行於指定時間運送作品實物至總評場地。If my project is an actual invention, should I submit it on or before 20th April 2018 (the deadline)?

You need not submit it in the phase of Initial Judging. You are only required to submit the actual invention once it successfully entries the Final Judging.

 

3) 請問初創企業所指的「已登記及註冊並營運時間超過3個月」是由何時開始計算? 

 

答:上述日期應由截止報名日期(23/3/2018)當日開始計算,(即22/12/2017當日或之前已登記及註冊並營運未足三年者,已可參與初創企業項目)。

When it comes to “registered and have been operating for at least 3 months” in the category of Start Up, how can I count the days?

The accurate days should be counted on or before 23rd April 2018 (the registration deadline date). That is, the enterprise which was registered and started operating on or before 22nd Dec 2017 (and not yet operated over 3 years) is eligible to participate in the category.

 

4) 初創企業所指的畢業3年內是如何計算?

 

答:參賽者須提交最終學歷之畢業證明,並以當中所載之頒發日期計算。How can I prove that I am “graduates within 3 years” and eligible to the category of Start Up?

The awarded date stated in your latest graduation certificate can serve the purpose. Therefore, you are required to submit the certificate copy upon registration.

 

5) 請問何時得知入圍總評及參加全國賽的名單? 

 

答:大會將於初評(5/5/2018)後一周內以電郵通知(6/5-12/5/2017)已入圍總評的參賽隊伍,至於參加全國賽的名單(創業項目),將預計於頒獎禮後一周公布。

6) 知悉2018年度全國賽是以創業為主題(每兩年一屆),如我今年勝出的作品是屬於創新類別的話,那我是否可以留待2019年參賽? 

 

答:由於全國賽事每年的主題有創新和創業的劃分,如今屆勝出的創業作品將留待與下年度勝出的同類作品作遴選,由評審團挑選合適作品參與當年的全國賽事,而創新類別亦然。

Since the theme of the National Competition this year in 2018 is Erepreneurship, will my Innovation project be reserved to the National Competition in Innovation categories the coming year in 2019?

The two categories - Innovation and Entrepreneurship - of “Challenge Cup” National Competition are respectively held every other two years in cross and never overlapped. The awarded Innovation projects will be reserved to the Hong Kong regional competition held in 2019 and compete with other projects by that time. The final winners will be listed to participate in the National Competition. So as to the Entrepreneurship categories.

 

7) 我和其他院校朋友合作的科技創新或者創業項目,是否可以參加比賽? 

 

答:按大會規定,創新項目的團隊成員必須來自同一院校,以便日後以同一間院校名義參加全國賽;唯創業項目的團隊成員毋須來自同一院校(日後統一以組長院校名義參與全國賽)。

My partners and I are from different institutes, can we register the competition?

According to the rules of the competition, all of the members in a team should come from the same institute (for Innovation projects) in order to take part in the National Competition on behalf of a single institute while the Entrepreneurship projects are not bounded by this rule (The institution of the team leader will represent the whole team when taking part in the National Competition).
