It is expected to last at least three years and benefit a total of 300 start-up teams.
Sixty-five teams formed by students and alumni at CityU have been selected so far. Each team would receive HK$100,000 worth of seed funding.
Led by SEE PhD student and research assistant, Mr. Zhu Yihao Martin and Miss. Du Yuwei, I2Cool is also selected for the HK$100,000 seed fund. The innovation is about the creation of “novel energy-free passive radiative cooling paint” that is environmentally friendly. The paint, which has high thermal emission and high solar reflection, can be applied to the exterior or roofs of buildings, aims to save energy use from air conditioners. The team would explore more uses of the cooling paint, such as combining it with solar panels to increase power generation.
