Technological and Higher Education Institute of Hong Kong (THEi)

THEi was set up in 2012 by the Vocational Training Council (VTC) of Hong Kong to offer degree programmes with a difference. They are innovative as many are in niche areas, combining areas of study not often found in Hong Kong but much needed by it. They are vocationally and professionally oriented and developed with significant industry input, with the ‘learn and do’ approach enabling students to apply specialised knowledge and skills to real-world issues. All our programmes include meaningful industry attachments with international and local firms in Hong Kong and overseas to provide students with first-hand experience of working in the real world. We aim to produce work-ready graduates.

Environment and Conservation Fund (ECF)

The ECF established under the Environment and Conservation Fund Ordinance (Cap. 450) in 1994. As part of its long-term commitment to environmental protection and conservation and with the funding approval of the Finance Committee of the Legislative Council on June 14, 2013, the Government has injected $5 billion into the ECF, which serves as seed money to generate annual investment returns to support such green projects and activities. Since establishment, the ECF has provided funding to support over 4,290 educational, research, and other projects and activities in relation to environmental and conservation matters.
