To celebrate the 115th National Day, Druk Holding Investment’s innovation and technology department (InnoTech) will be conducting a Technology and Innovation Programme starting today at the Thimphu TechPark in Serbithang.

Focusing on the significance of leveraging technology for economic growth and the common good of the society, the programme aims to create a platform to enable conversation, learning, interaction and exploration of concepts and technologies that could transform the Bhutanese economy.

The program has three core components: the national entrepreneurship challenge, the InnoTech interactive exhibition and the InnoTech-Talks.

The five-day programme will be open to the public and the DHI InnoTech will organise free bus service from Changlingmithang to Thimphu TechPark from 9am to 5pm.

The event will also be hosting a fair consisting of food stalls, musical performances, open mic, movie or documentary screenings, networking programmes, a tour of the Jigme Namgyal Wangchuck super fab lab, workshops and other social activities.

Interested individuals can also exhibit their products by contacting InnoTech through their social media pages to arrange stall space.

The programme at the Thimphu TechPark ends on December 9.
