SEE PhD students received Second Prize of the Entrepreneurship Proposal Scheme in the 7th Hong Kong University Student Innovation and Entrepreneurship Competition
Under the supervision of Dr. Edwin Tso, three SEE PhD students, namely, Mr. Martin Zhu, Mr. Johnny Lin and Kelly Chen participated in the entrepreneurship proposal scheme of the 7th Hong Kong University Student Innovation and Entrepreneurship Competition, organised by Hong Kong New Generation Cultural Association (HKNGCA).
The award-winning proposal is entitled “A Novel Energy Free and Environmentally Friendly Cooling Paint for Building Applications”. Through this project, the team aims to promote a novel energy-free and environment-friendly passive radiative cooling paint product to reduce the air conditioning energy consumption in buildings. Empowered by the self-developed and ever-improving paint product, as well as fueled by the highly adaptive and long-term strategies, the team successfully attracted the interest from the judging panel members in the competition and got the Second Prize. In addition, by demonstrating this novel energy-saving technology to the public via the platform provided by the competition organizer, a great sense of environmental protection and living wellness could be raised among different sectors of society.
