The Task Force on the Review of the Research Grants Council (RGC) (Phase I) was set up in July 2016 under the Research Group (RG), one of the standing committees of the University Grants Committee (UGC). It was entrusted with the responsibility of overseeing the implementation of the Phase I Review of the RGC and submitting recommendations to the RG and UGC. The Phase I Review aims to examine macro issues such as the portfolio balance of the research funding schemes administered by the RGC, the RGC's structure and comparable good practice in overseas funding agencies. The findings of the RGC Review will be considered by the UGC and the RGC.
