Organised by The Hong Kong Research Institute of Textiles and Apparel (HKRITA), the second RITA Awards Presentation was held on 7 July 2015 to acknowledge the Institute’s partners to the research and technology development in the textiles and apparel industry. The HKSI, which has joined hands with HKRITA to develop high performance sportswear such as rowing suits and cycling wear, was presented with the “Partners in Progress” award to acknowledge its contribution to promoting the realisation and commercialisation of R&D results. The collaboration between the two organisations has had a positive impact on Hong Kong athletes’ sports achievements, enabling them to better adapt to the sports environment and competition needs.

The awards presentation was part of the Innovation and Technology Symposium held on the same day, which promoted exchanges in upgrading technologies and innovative possibilities for the industry. For more detail of the awards presentation and the symposium, please visit HKRITA’s website:
