     The ITSP adopts a three-tier funding framework. This application exercise covers Tier 2 and Tier 3 funding. Tier 2 involves the funding of applied research and development projects that are industry-oriented and have potential for commercialisation, while Tier 3 involves the funding of exploratory and forward-looking projects. 

     "For this round we would in particular like to receive proposals under the themes of 'Smart Technologies for Helping Combat Climate Change', 'Healthy Ageing', 'Smart City', 'Cyber Security' and 'FinTech'. However, proposals not falling under these themes would also be accepted," a spokesman for the ITC said.

     The application period commenced today (January 26) and will last until March 31 this year.
