1:00pm – 2:00pm , 22 Jun 2021


WLB 103 / Zoom




The HKSAR Government has committed over $100 billion on I&T since its current term started in July 2017.  The importance of I&T to our future is axiomatic but how could we make use of Government’s policies and vast funding to help ourselves?  Why Government funding seems so readily available and yet seemingly difficult to secure?  Is I&T only for STEM?  What about “Art Tech”?  Let’s hear what a veteran public policy professional has to say and share. Please come if you wish to apply for more Hong Kong Government funding.
