TCFS Application

Guangdong-Hong Kong Technology Cooperation Funding Scheme 2018
R&D Project Applications for Textiles & Clothing

The Hong Kong Research Institute of Textiles and Apparel Limited (HKRITA) is now inviting applications for Guangdong-Hong Kong Technology Cooperation Funding Scheme (TCFS) 2018 research and development projects.

The TCFS aims to support applied R&D projects which will facilitate the economic development in the Greater Pearl River Delta(PRD)region. Under this scheme, the governments of HKSAR and Guangdong invite R&D project proposals in technology areas of common interest and provide funding support to approved projects.

For details of the scheme, please visit the webpage of Guangdong - Hong Kong Technology Cooperation Funding Scheme (TCFS).

Submission of Applications

To minimise unnecessary work and save time, the following two-step approach should be followed:

  1. applicants should first brief HKRITA on the proposed application by way of a powerpoint presentation which identifies the key features of the project proposal – this will facilitate an initial assessment as to whether the proposal can be supported; and, if so
  2. a formal application for funding, fine-tuned on the basis of earlier discussions, can then be formally submitted.

Please note that the application proposal for the funding has to be submitted by filling in the application form via ITCFAS. A hardcopy of the application should be stamped by your own Research Institution before submitted to HKRITA. We may require additional hardcopies of your application later.

Deadline for Applications

The deadline for application is on 15 June 2018.
