Introduction and Funding Application
With effect from 8 June 2021, the Innovation and Technology Commission (ITC) has appointed the Hong Kong Productivity Council (HKPC) as the Secretariat of the Technology Voucher Programme (TVP). References to the Government or ITC in the programme documents should be deemed as referring to HKPC as well where appropriate. For enquiries, please contact the Secretariat of the TVP at 2789 7000 or email@example.com.
Launched in November 2016, TVP aims to support local enterprises/organisations in using technological services and solutions to improve productivity, or upgrade or transform their business processes.
Local entities fulfilling the following requirements are eligible to apply for funding under the TVP:
(a)(i) Registered in Hong Kong under the Business Registration Ordinance (Cap. 310); or
(a)(ii) Incorporated and registered in Hong Kong under the Companies Ordinance (Cap. 622); or
(a)(iii) Established in Hong Kong by relevant ordinances as statutory bodies;
(b) Not a listed company in Hong Kong, and not a government subvented organisation* or subsidiary of any government subvented organisation*;
(c) With substantive business operation in Hong Kong which is related to the project under application at the time of application.
(*A government subvented organisation means an organisation that receives subvention from the Government on a recurrent basis. The subvention contributes towards the organisation's operational expenses, in exchange for its service to the public. The recurrent subvention may account for the bulk of the organisation's income or may just be a token contribution/sponsorship forming a small percentage of the organisation's total income.)
- Provide funding for projects on a 3 (Government):1 (enterprise/organisation) matching basis.
- Cumulative funding ceiling per enterprise/organisation: HK$600,000.
- Up to 6 projects per enterprise/organisation.
TVP invites applications for funding all year round. An entity should register as a user and submit its application through the Technology Voucher Programme Funding Administrative System. For details, please refer to the following documents. Please contact Technology Voucher Programme Secretariat if you need any assistance.
Sample Documents Required for Applications
Upon receipt of an application, the Secretariat will check the eligibility of the applicant enterprise/organisation and conduct a preliminary screening.
