Entries invited for 2015 State Science and Technology Awards
The Innovation and Technology Commission is inviting Hong Kong people of Chinese nationality who have significant achievements in science and technology to submit entries for the 2015 State Technological Invention Award (STIA) and the State Scientific and Technological Progress Award (SSTPA). The STIA and SSTPA are two award categories under the State Science and Technology Awards administered by the State Council of the People's Republic of China.
The State Science and Technology Awards are highly prestigious in the national science and technology sector. The awards aim to recognise outstanding contributions to scientific and technological progress by citizens and organisations, commend the enthusiasm and creativity of scientists and technologists, accelerate the development of scientific and technological undertakings, and enhance overall national strength.
The Commission has been entrusted by the National Office for Science and Technology Awards (NOSTA) to co-ordinate nominations from Hong Kong for the STIA and SSTPA since 2002.
Entries for the 2015 STIA and SSTPA in Hong Kong will close on November 21, 2014. The Commission will invite a judging panel of experts to consider the entries received before making nominations to NOSTA.
Details of the awards and the application procedures are available at www.itc.gov.hk/en/ssta or from the Innovation and Technology Commission (Tel: 3655 5792).
