Industry: 100%Industry partner can own the foreground IPIndustry partner is eligible for 30% cash rebate from ITC on sponsoring projects. ASTRI Proprietary13Project Internship (Graduated)

The Innovation & Technology Commission (ITC) has established an internship programme for organizations undertaking research and development projects funded ITF, including local universities, Research & Development Centres established under ITF, Hong Kong Productivity Council and private sector companies to recruit interns to assist in the R&D projects.

To be qualified for the Internship Programme, the recruited intern should be graduate with a first-degree or higher degree, including non-local students, from a local university. He/she should be graduated in the relevant field of the research project to which he/she is to be recruited.

Up to 2 Project Interns per ITF project. Internship Period: 6 24 months

For the Project Interns' first ITF project, the completion date of the project should be 12+ months from the date of application

Project Interns will be allowed to participate in another project, upon completion of internship in a project

Innovation & Technology Fund (ITF) Internship ProgrammeASTRI Proprietary14Summer Internship (Student)University students gain R&D experience at ASTRI (2014)

A total of 15 students, most of them took part in R&D projects in various research teams within ASTRI, completed 8 10 weeks training, through which they gained their first research experience in a real working environment.

Among them were three students from Princeton University who were selected to be summer interns through a joint summer research program between Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and Princeton University.

Apart from open recruitment, students were also selected through two award schemes. The first one is InnoTech Scholarship Award Scheme under The Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups which aims at providing internship opportunities to outstanding local undergraduates in the science, engineering, technology and health disciplines. Some top-notch students were recruited through the Excellence in Technology Innovation and Commercialization Scholarship Award Scheme (Ethics) hosted by a charitable organization, the Virtus Foundation Ltd.
