The funding ceiling is one-third of the total project cost or $15 million, whichever is the lower. The scope of funding covers expenses directly related to the establishment of the new smart production lines in Hong Kong, including the costs of procurement, installation and commissioning of the machinery, equipment or apparatus, as well as fees for engaging technical consultants for the design and setting up of the production lines concerned (testing and staff training costs inclusive).
     The Scheme is open for application throughout the year. Details are available at the ITF website (www.itf.gov.hk). For enquiries, please contact the Secretariat of the Scheme (Tel: 3655 5678; email: rfs-enquiry@itc.gov.hk).
