InnoCarnival 2022 started on 22 Oct 2022 at Hong Kong Science and Technology Park. The event was supported by 54 partners, including seven universities, five research and development centres, 11 government departments and 31 organisations. During the carnival, 37 physical booths are set up at the Hong Kong Science Park, showcasing a series of I&T achievements and interactive games, together with around 145 online workshops covering a wide range of I&T topics (including parent-child workshops) and about 40 webinars, with the aim of showing the public the importance of I&T in people's daily lives and inspiring the younger generation to pursue knowledge and cultivate interest in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics). CUHK occupied a total floor space of 156 sq.m., which was the largest in the hall.

Professors from different departments including the Department of Statistics, Chemistry, Life Sciences, Physics, Mechanical and Automation Engineering, Statistics, Mathematics and Earth Sciences joined to present their projects (total of 13 projects). In addition, there was a special ball game area operated by CUHK Robocon team. The team just won the Grand Prix Award at the Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union’s Asia-Pacific Robot Contest (ABU Robocon), which was held online on 21 August 2022.
