    The Competition was run in two rounds. Themed “An Advancing Net Zero (ANZ) Hub in CIC-Zero Carbon Park (CIC-ZCP)” this year, participating teams were required to demonstrate how to achieve net zero carbon emissions during design, construction process as well as after the completion of their rebuilt CIC-ZCP.
