More Newly Funded Projects in 2008

Processing Trade Enterprises are experiencing significant difficulties in meeting requirements of periodic online supervision from China customs authorities.  A recently awarded project, namely, "RFID-Enabled Real-Time Manufacturing Shop-floor Information Infrastructure for PRD Processing Trade Enterprises" (GHP/042/07LP), aims to develop an easy-to-deploy shop-floor information infrastructure for manufacturing companies to achieve real-time and seamless dual-way connectivity and interoperability between applications systems at enterprise, shop-floor, work-cell and device levels.  This project also strives to improve the visibility and traceability throughout the manufacturing processes.  This project is a joint research and development collaboration between organizations in Hong Kong and Guangdong Province.


Food safety attracts a lot of public interests in China and Hong Kong.  The University of Hong Kong and the Chinese University of Hong Kong will jointly participate in a Guangdong-Hong Kong collaborative research project, namely "RFID-enabled Platform Technology for the Integrated Shenzhen-Hong Kong Food Safety and Supply Chain Management Public Information Platform" (GHP/024/07LZ). This project targets to facilitate the integration of supply chain management amongst the enterprises across the regions and enable their seamless information flow along the food supply chain from China to Hong Kong. A cross-border RFID-enabled public information platform will be studied and developed. RFID and sensoring technologies will also be deployed as enabling technologies.
