Fifty five projects constructed by Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (Greater Bay Area) college students will be signed off with investors at the first Great Bay Area College Students Innovation and Entrepreneurship Projects Matchmaking Session.
The special session was held on Dec 24 in Guangzhou and the deals to be signed are worth more than $18 million. More than 800 innovative college students from the Great Bay Area along with nearly 150 investment organizations participated in the match-making session.
The projects covered eight areas including that of modern agriculture, advanced manufacturing and the information technology industries. Highlighted projects include the one brought by students from Hong Kong University of Science and Technology which integrates special QR code images and information encryption technology into product packaging to solve counterfeiting problems.
According to Jing Lihu, head of Department of Education of Guangdong Province, colleges and universities in Guangdong need to deepen their innovation and entrepreneurship education and students should take an active role within entrepreneurial practices. Jing hoped that more investors can pay attention and support to the entrepreneurial projects launched by college students.
Guo Weiqiang, a member of the group from Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, said the projects from Hong Kong universities at the session are great and by cooperating with investors in Chinese mainland, the students will surely realize their dreams.
