The Patent Application Grant (PAG) is a funding scheme set up by the HKSAR Government to assist Hong Kong companies and individuals to obtain patents for their inventions. The PAG aims to promote innovations and encourage local companies and individuals to protect their inventions through patenting. Patents obtained through funding from the PAG will be held by the companies and individuals.

Application process of the PAG

The Hong Kong Productivity Council (HKPC) is responsible for assessing the application of the PAG, while the Innovation and Technology Commission (ITC) supervises the application process. Subject to a administration fee, a grant of HK$250,000 will be available to the each applicant upon approval.

Eligibility for the PAG

Any Hong Kong incorporated company or Hong Kong permanent resident who has never owned any patents in any countries before will be eligible for the PAG if certain requirements set by the ITC are met.
