Note 1: The Guangdong / Hong Kong Technology Cooperation Funding Scheme, launched in 2004, is a key Guangdong / Hong Kong cooperation initiative to encourage collaboration among universities, research institutes and technology enterprises in Hong Kong and Guangdong Province. Under the Scheme, the governments of the two sides invite R&D project proposals in technology areas of common interest and provide funding support to approved projects, which need to demonstrate Guangdong / Hong Kong cooperation (e.g. collaboration between Guangdong and local research institutes and enterprises).
