Innovation and Technology Fund approves $26 million for ITC research projects

The Innovation and Technology Fund (ITF), which is administered by the Innovation and Technology Commission, has approved a total of HK$26M to fund eight ITC led projects in the past six months.

The projects are diverse in scope and range from antiviral and durable clothing for healthcare workers to fabric for unidirectional liquid transport, medical pressure clothing, wearable energy fabrics, and antiviral, washable and reusable face masks, just to name a few.  These projects not only demonstrate the strong research capabilities of the ITC staff members but also their commitment to the well-being of the community.  Congratulations to the following successful recipients of the funding.
