1) Funding Support (ITF)

Launched in 1999 with fund HK$5 bn

4 funding programmes
a) Innovation & Technology Support Programme (Two major types:
 Platform Projects:
 10% from industry; 90% from ITF
 Industry does NOT own IPs
 Collaborative Projects:
 50% from industry; 50% from ITF
 Industry will own IPs
b) University-Industry Collaboration Programme
(50 % from industry; 50% from ITF; Industry will own IPs)
9
c) General Support Programme (for non-R&D activities)
 Project scope:
• contribute to fostering innovation and technology
culture in Hong Kong;
 Project grant: up to 90% of total approved project cost
d) Small Entrepreneur Research Assistance Programme
(SERAP)
 Dollar-to-dollar matching basis; maximum HK$4 million
from ITF)
10
2) R&D Centre Programme

5 R&D Centres
1) Nano & Advanced Materials Institute (NAMI)
— Nanotechnology and advanced materials
2) Research Institute of Textiles and Apparel (RITA)
— Textiles and clothing
3) Automotive Parts and Accessory Systems (APAS)
— Automotive parts and accessory systems
4) Logistics & Supply Chain Management Enabling Technologies
(LSCM)
— Logistics and supply chain management
5) Applied Science and Technology Research Institute (ASTRI)
— ICT
[Note: under ASTRI  HKJCICM]

3) Cash Rebate Scheme
-
10% rebate for ITF projects and projects
undertaken with local R&D institutions
-
e.g. a $1mn Collaboration Project:
HK$
(a) R&D expenditure borne by
the company
500,000
(b) Profit tax saved (16.5%)
(82,500) (a x 16.5%)
(c) Cash rebate (10%)
(50,000) (a x 10%)
(d) Taxable part of the cash
rebate (16.5%)
Actual R&D expenditure
8,250
(c x 16.5%)
Only 37%
of total
cost
375,750 (a–b–c+d)

一條龍
One-Stop Support

ITC serves as a conduit to match user needs with
technology know-how developed by innovators/researchers;

ITC provides funding: ITF and Cash Rebate Scheme;

Government users to provide inputs on user requirements to
I&T suppliers, ie. matching demand with supply;

Government departments and public bodies to conduct trial
use of research deliverables;

User feedback after trial use would facilitate
innovators/researchers to fine-tune research outputs to
products more in line with market demand;

I&T suppliers build referencebility.
Examples
1) LED lighting

Highways Department, Housing Department
2) E-Learning Pilot Scheme

Education Bureau
3) RFID Technology for workplace automation and
operational efficiency

Customs & Excise Dept, Correctional Services Dept,
Radio Television Hong Kong

4) Health Care and
Welfare Sector


Hospital Authority
Hong Kong Council of
Social Service

4) Health Care and Welfare Sector

Projects

Handy device for community nurses for home visits

Drug dispenser for elderly patients

Special computer with Skype capability for bed-ridden senior citizens

RFID Tags and Management System for tracking new born babies in
hospital

RFID Tags and Management System for tracking tools and gauzes used in
operating theatre in hospital

Digitization and e-copy of pathology slides for easy retrieval/ examination
by doctors in hospital

Computer designed for easy sterile for Paediatric Ward

Convenient login device for doctors/nurses to login HA main system

III. Refine Funding Mechanism for
Facilitating Technology
Realisation/Commercialisation
19
Extending ITF “Vertically”
Provide funding support for production of
tools/prototypes/samples and conducting trial use in public
sector;
Provide “Follow-On” Funding – advanced approval mechanism.
Extending ITF “Horizontally”
Adopt “cluster project approach” for project consideration.
20
Vetting Criteria
 Scientific component;
 Technical capability;
 Financial considerations;
 Existence of a holistic plan to realisation /
commercialisation;
 Relevance with Government policies or in overall
interest of the community;
 Proposal on IP rights and benefit sharing; and
 Management capability.
