The EdUHK Education And Social Entrepreneurs (EASE) Fund Scheme, a seed funding scheme first introduced in 2018, is a major initiative in nurturing entrepreneurship within EdUHK communities as a means of transferring EdUHK knowledge, and hence, making an impact to society. The Scheme aims to create and promote a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship in the EdUHK community; to support students, staff, and alumni to pursue their dreams and creations by starting up a sustainable venture relating to EdTech, Education innovation and Social innovation; and, to provide a new channel for transferring knowledge and EdUHK research outcomes into real-life applications so as to benefit the society. 

Subsidized by the Youth Development Fund (YDF), the EASE Fund Scheme 2021/22 will be enhanced and the Knowledge Transfer Sub-office, RDO is pleased to announce that the EASE Fund Scheme 2021/22 is now open for application.
