- Environmental-friendly Textile Dyestuff and Chemical
- Quick Testing Technology for Toxic and Harmful Textiles and Clothing Products

The deadline for application is on 15 October 2008, 5:00 PM (Hong Kong Time).

For Guangdong-Hong Kong Technology Cooperation Funding Scheme (TCFS) 2008 research and development projects, the scheme selected should be “ITSP - R&D Centre (R&D Projects)” under grant type and then “Guangdong-Hong Kong TCFS: Platform Research Scheme”.
