CH Biotech and the College of Bioresources and Agriculture, National Taiwan University and NTUILO jointly held the award ceremony of the first “2019 CH BioTech Innovation Award", FANG,JU-YING, the master of Department of Plant Pathology and Microbiology studies on the pathogenic mechanism of Citrus Exocortis virus won the first prize of this year and won a scholarship of NT$200,000 to create the highest individual scholarship in Taiwan's agricultural biotechnology field.


CH Biotech was established in Taiwan for nearly six years. In June 2018, the global R&D center was launched with an investment amount of NT$2 billion, setting a new record for investment in Taiwan's private agricultural biotechnology field. Currently, the company has more than 50% of human resources on R&D. The R&D department is composed of Taiwan-trained, internationally experienced doctors and masters, focusing on developing globally unique and innovative formulas for agricultural materials. CH Biotech continues to develop its international market in United States, Canada, Brazil, Uruguay, Argentina, Chile, Australia, etc.

CH Biotech is positioned as a “R&D” enterprise and puts a lot s of efforts to promote innovation in Taiwan academia. At the beginning of this year, CH Biotech jointly launched the first "CH Biotech Innovation Award" with College of Bioresources and Agriculture, National Taiwan University to encourage innovation of agricultural biotechnology in academic, so as to deepen basic science and explore new ideas for solving today's agricultural problems.

Chiou, Chyou-Huey, Director of Department of Academia-Industry Collaboration and Science Park Affairs Ministry of Science and Technology, MOST, thanked CH BioTech for organizing this scholarship activity and set a record for the highest scholarship. In addition, he pointed out that it is accurate choice to CH BioTech. First of all, the output value of agricultural biotechnology in the world is about 47 billion US dollars, a truly multi-billions industry. Taiwan itself contains outstanding achievement in this field and the build-up of agricultural biotechnology will definitely bring new output value to the agricultural industry. The second one is its sharpness toward talents policy. The Ministry of Science and Technology has recently made efforts to promote industry-academia cooperation, and the award from CH Biotech does correspond with government’s direction, rewarding students to cultivate talents in the biotechnological field, creating outstanding contributions to industrial competence.

Prof. Huu-Sheng Lur, dean of College of Bioresources and Agriculture, also said that although Taiwan's agricultural biotechnology contain abundant energy in research and development, the long-term lack of co-work from leading enterprises and academic, indirectly affecting students' willingness to apply for doctoral degree. He is thus looking forward to more companies conducting the positive cycle of Taiwan's agricultural biotechnology research and development. In this term, companies can also find new technologies and eligible talents, and can form win-win situation within enterprises, universities, and students.
