Knowledge Transfer Project Fund (KPF) is now open for applications!

KPF scheme is a CUHK funding scheme under the University’s initiative in supporting professors to translate their research into community-based social impact projects. With the continuous support from the University and Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship Fund, we have witnessed some successful applied researches that brought about tangible social impact in the local community.

Previously funded projects fell into one or more of the seven main categories listed below. Applicants are welcome to propose new social impact areas based on the nature of their own projects:

  • Culture and Heritage
  • Good Health and Well-being
  • Gender Equality
  • No Poverty
  • Quality Education
  • Reduced Inequality
  • Sustainable Cities and Communities

To apply for the scheme, Project Leaders and Co-Leaders should be full-time CUHK staff members on professoriate or research academic ranks; other teaching staff would also be considered on a case-by-case basis. Each successful application may receive up to HK$400,000. Find out more details here.
