The Innovation & Technology Commission today launched the fourth round of the Midstream Research Programme for Universities.
Universities can send funding applications for research and development projects under the themes of drug development and green engineering technologies.
Projects under the drug development theme refer to mid- to downstream research on innovative chemical, biological or Chinese medicines-based drugs for disease management.
Those under the theme of green engineering technologies cover a wide range of areas in the engineering discipline, including renewable energy such as solar and wind energy, third generation semiconductors, remote sensing technology, artificial intelligence, intelligent buildings and smart grids.
The funding ceiling per project is $5 million. Projects involving collaboration across multiple disciplines, universities or research institutions will be given priority and a higher funding ceiling of $10 million per project.
The application deadline is March 26.
