Innovation and Technology Commission (ITC)
Mainland-Hong Kong Joint Funding Scheme (MHKJFS)
ITC is now inviting applications for the MHKJFS. MHKJFS aims to support and encourage R&D collaboration among universities, research institutes and technology enterprises in Hong Kong and the Mainland. It provides funding support for both platform (at least 10% industry sponsorship) and collaborative (at least 50% industry sponsorship) R&D projects with an element of Mainland and Hong Kong cooperation.
It is now soliciting proposals with the following three specific themes:
(a) Research on Prevention and Treatment of Cancer;
(b) Research on Modernization of Chinese Medicine; and
(c) Prevention and Treatment of Respiratory Tract Infection;
(2) Artificial Intelligence; and
(3) New Materials.
Applications under the MHKJFS must be submitted simultaneously by the Hong Kong and Mainland institutions to ITC and the Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) respectively, where R&D work must be conducted in both places. ITC and MOST will provide funding to the Hong Kong and Mainland applicant organizations respectively, and will monitor project progress according to their own requirements.
For details, please refer to the information on the program and application here.
