The Greater Bay Area, formed of Hong Kong, Macau and nine Guangdong cities, will be a formidable integrated business and economic hub in the region. Hong Kong, with its unique strategic attributes in location, international accessibility and multi-cultural appeal, is well positioned to leverage the unprecedented opportunities arising from the Greater Bay Area, and race ahead in innovation and technology.
To capitalise on the opportunities, HKSTP serves the role in identifying Hong Kong’s relative advantages and complementary strengths with other Greater Bay Area cities, and helps our ecosystem develop new frontiers.
Our evolving strategies and efforts to create an optimal environment and cutting-edge facilities to help Hong Kong innovators achieve success underscores our determination to make innovation and technology another pillar of the city’s diversified economy.
Expanding for Growth
HKSTP’s portfolio of facilities and value-added services is constantly expanding to cater for the growth and diversifying needs of Hong Kong’s innovation and technology ecosystem.
Located on a 127,000-sq ft site to the west of Hong Kong Science Park Phase 3, the new extension stage 1 with two buildings will provide research-related infrastructure and facilities, adding 834,600 sq ft of dedicated laboratory and work space to accelerate the development of healthcare, AI/robotics technological research when completed in 2019.
InnoCell aims to provide around 500 residential units of affordable accommodation for talent and incubatees from Science Park. This 17-storey building sits on a 32,000-sq ft site adjacent to the southeast entrance of Hong Kong Science Park. Being a pioneer to showcase the smart living & co-creation community, InnoCell will create a more vibrant I&T ecosystem, provide an additional incentive for attracting and retaining talents, and enhance collaboration among local and overseas talents.
InnoCell is one of the pilot projects adopting Modular Integrated Construction (MiC) systems, and is expected to be completed by the end of 2020.

Occupying a strategic location in Hong Kong bordering Shenzhen, the Hong Kong-Shenzhen Innovation and Technology Park offers four times as much land area as Hong Kong Science Park, giving Hong Kong’s innovation and technology ecosystem not only the space to grow but also the proximity to tap the supply chain, manufacturing capabilities and talent pool across the border.
In 2017, Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation set up Hong Kong-Shenzhen Innovation and Technology Park Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary, to build the superstructure, manage, maintain and operate the Park.
