2018 Midstream Research Programme for Universities open for applications

Hong Kong (HKSAR) -      The Innovation and Technology Commission (ITC) is now inviting funding applications on the research theme "Elderly Health and Care" under the Midstream Research Programme for Universities (MRP) of the Innovation and Technology Fund (ITF).

     The MRP aims at encouraging universities funded by the University Grants Committee to conduct more theme-based midstream research in focused technology areas, such that more research outcomes could be made available for further downstream research work or product development. The funding ceiling for each project is $5 million. Projects involving collaboration across multiple disciplines, universities or research institutions will be accorded priority and a higher funding ceiling of $10 million per project.

     The application period commenced today (February 28) and will last until April 30 this year.

     Further information and application procedures on the MRP are available on the ITF website (http://www.itf.gov.hk/" target="_blank">www.itf.gov.hk).

For enquiries, please contact the ITF Secretariat (MRP section) on 3655 5958 or by email: enquiry@itf.gov.hk.
