Strategic Patent Fund

In order to have a good protection of the IPRs of HKBU inventions within the constraint of limited funding resources of the respective academic unit, SPF has been established with the support of the Innovation and Technology Fund.  This funding is available for those top quality first jurisdiction patent filings, which will be strategic if filed in a second or a third jurisdiction.  The SPF provides grants of HK$30,000 each towards the costs of filing an approved patent in a second or third jurisdiction.  This SPF funding can be used to match the $30,000 funding support from the University in paying for such patent applications.
