2018 IIDC Hong Kong International Invention and Design Competition Report

2018IIDC invention competition organized by CIIS and in collaboration with Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC), it was hold in 5-7Dec in Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, in Smartbiz Expo global invention zone. This event gathered more than 300 inventors and81 inventions from 12 countries and regions. They are from Taiwan, Japan, Thailand, Russia, Egypt, Malaysia, Indonesia, Poland, England, China, Hong Kong, United States. Competition is under the categories of “innovative technology”, “medical and healthcare”, “smart home and building” , “eco and better living”, and “design”.

With the support of HKTDC, the IIDC competition and exhibition got a fruitful outcome and came to a successful conclusion. There are many young inventors come to join IIDC event this year, These young inventors performed very outstanding, they are spotlight at the venue. Like many other international invention exhibitions, the Hong Kong IIDC event with Smartbiz Expo was exhibition-competition based; however, its greatest distinction is that with HKTDC as intermediary, the events were generally based on the trade of intellectual property rights and partnership with buyers. In the 3-day exhibition, buyers were able to immediately enquire about commercially viable inventions and place direct orders, and this active on-site trade channel that allowed inventors to successfully receive orders was a key feature in the exhibition.

IIDC also supported by International Federation of Inventors Associations (IFIA) , with the assistance of IFIA and its President( Mr.Alireza Rastegar) in drawing talented inventors from all over the world and providing two IFIA Best Invention awards is much appreciated. One of the award was presented to Invention " LIQUID CRYSTAL DISPLAY BASED CASCADE IONIZING RADIATION DETECTOR VISUALIZING IN REAL TIME " from Poland. This invention is allows non-invasive visualization of the interior of solids and biological organisms. It has a high resolution, which allows for the differentiation of details about the size of a single micron. It allows to minimalize the Rtg/X-ray energy used for medical diagnostic and minimizes the side effects of ionizing radiation on alive organisms, it attracted much attention at the exhibition. The other award was presented to Invention " Personal brain structure displaying device having intracranial electrodes and its displaying method" from Taiwan, this invention co-labeling algorithm uses pre-implant magnetic resonance imaging and post-implant computed tomography fusion for the localization of epileptogenic zones and its relation with automatic labeled surrounding cortex. The method is aimed to improve a technique investigation in epilepsy brain mapping for staged epilepsy surgery. Therefore, the technique is designed to image seizure source for epileptologists and neurosurgeons to conduct epilepsy surgery. The IFIA representative Dr.Masoud SHAFAGHI gave a speech in the award ceremony, to remind the importance of this event is very special for inventor and bushiness, to congratulate the winners and to thank the organizers.

The inventions in IIDC exhibition included patents from all over the world. Half of these inventions came from technology industries, university incubation centers and academic research. Youth inventor continued to be a highlight of this event. Twenty inventions were from elementary, middle and senior high schools, their age from 10 to 16, they displayed many their brilliant ideas, creativity and English fluency of these young inventors when describing their inventions to international visitors were particularly noteworthy. At the IIDC, many of inventors even received orders from Hong Kong, Singapore etc. many countries which made them brilliant successes.
