  • Synopsis of the Scheme

    This scheme aims at developing core technology research and application research in nanotechnology, developing key technologies, materials, crafts, and devices to break the bottlenecks, cultivating, and expanding the nano industry in Guangdong, and supporting the establishment of high-level innovation in the nano industry in the Greater Bay Area.

    This scheme includes major industrialization and free application types, with 19 research directions in total. Major industrialization has 4 research directions and requires a designated institution to lead and implement the project. The free application provides 15 research directions. Among them, there are 3 directions called ‘Province-District linkage’ tasks, which require the enterprises of Huangpu District to lead or the research results to be industrialized in Huangpu District.


    Applicants should meet all the following requirements:

    1. Matching funds are required. The matching funds shall not be less than 70% of the total amount of funds of the project if the host institution is an enterprise. If the host institution is not an enterprise, the matching funds shall not be less than 50%.
    2. In principle, the same research team can only apply for or participate in one project. One institution can only apply for or participate in no more than three projects.
    3. Applicants who have three or more Guangdong S&T projects that have yet closed or have project(s) that have been delayed for more than one year cannot apply for this project.
    4. Applicants who have any ongoing Guangdong major S&T projects or key R&D projects that have yet closed cannot apply for this project.
    5. For other detailed eligibility requirements, please refer to the scheme guidelines in the application system.
