A survey conducted by the Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation (HKSTP) in 2016 revealed that a sizable proportion of tech talent in Hong Kong were in search of affordable space that could serve both work and live. Enter InnoCell, a curated co-creation and smart living space designed to bring together R&D talent within Hong Kong Science Park – the city’s largest incubation and innovation hub. Its use of shared spaces and smart living technology helps to build interaction and collaboration, resulting in a network of like-minded talent who inspire one another.

R&D community with shared values

In addition to knowledge-exchange events, InnoCell hosts a social calendar of happenings. The focus at HKSTP goes far beyond building infrastructure and providing support services, but creating a community that lives and breathes their passion for I&T. This is why InnoCell applicants are selected to ensure that they are aligned with a common goal to inspire progress, create impact, and instigate change.

Co-creation is the capacity to work together to generate ideas, solve problems, and exploit new opportunities. It’s the ebb and flow between different types of work, roles and perspectives. Physical space helps shape human behaviour, which compounds over time to create culture, and facilitate a creative ecosystem. InnoCell provides a custom space for like-minded innovators to harness and hone their talent, exchange ideas and pursue the next big I&T breakthrough.
