The High-Level Technology (HLT) Fund was established in 2017 to provide grant financing for promoting the integration of high-level technology and innovative solutions into ADB projects addressing development challenges, with the Government of Japan as the first donor.

The HLT Fund supports various modalities including additional financing to ADB’s Investment Project (such as sovereign loans) or to Technical Assistance. It also supports the new program called Technology Innovation Challenge, where technology providers can directly participate in proposing the pilot projects.
