Subject to the cumulative funding ceiling of $200,000, up to three projects from an enterprise may be approved. To ensure proper focus on project implementation, an enterprise is not allowed to undertake more than one Technology Voucher Programme project at the same time. Expenditure items under an approved Technology Voucher Programme project shall not receive funding support from other local public funding sources.

Is there any restriction on the project duration?

ITC may also seek clarification or supplementary information from the applicant enterprise if necessary.
