The Hong Kong Research Institute of Textiles and Apparel was established in 2006. We are funded by the Innovation and Technology Commission, HKSAR Government and hosted by The Hong Kong Polytechnic University. HKRITA provides one-stop services for applied research, technology transfer and commercialization.
HKRITA has four R&D focus areas:
New materials and textiles and apparel products.
Advanced textiles and clothing production technologies.
Innovative design and evaluation technologies.
Enhanced industrial systems and infrastructure.
We conducted research projects mainly through three types of program: Platform Research, Collaborative Research and Contract Research. Applications for research funding are welcome throughout the year.
HKRITA has been devoting sustained efforts to promote our successful projects for industry application. We have protectively liaised with potential partners. Exploratory meetings, technology demonstrations or site visits can be arranged for interested parties.
