Announcement Ministry of Science & Technology utilizes the academic innovative technologies to create new business opportunities in the industries through corporation linkage
To know more about the industry needs and effectively promote academia-industry collaboration, the Ministry of Science and Technology’s “Academia-Industry Collaboration by Research Institutes Project” has been working with the Taiwan Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers’ Association, Taiwan IoT Technology and Industry Association, Taiwan Association of Machinery Industry, and Taiwan Medical And Biotech Industry Association to hold five Academia-Industry Collaboration Exchange Forums on Smart Cars, Internet of Things, Smart Cities, Smart Machines and Biotechnological Medical Materials in August and September. In these Forums, the teams from National Sun Yat-sen University, National Chung Cheng University, National Taiwan University of Science and Technology, National Cheng Kung University, National Formosa University, Chang Gung University, Southern Taiwan University of Science and Technology, National Pingtung University of Science and Technology, National Taiwan Ocean University, Kaohsiung Medical University, National Tsing Hua University and National Chin-Yi University of Technology presented their potential technologies. There were 330 participants who attended these forums and there were 33 groups for one-on-one consultations.
The following potential technologies were received well: “Development of the Power, Suspension, and Steering Systems for the High-Safety Freight Motor Triwheeler” by Professor Chien-Hsiung, Tsai from National Pingtung University of Science and Technology, “Electric Bus-Related Powertrain Modeling” by Professor Liang-Kuang Chen from National Taiwan University of Science and Technology, “Adaptive Servo-Tuning and Collision Detection of the Five-Axis Linear-Motor Machine Tool” by Professor Ching-Hung Lee from National Chung Hsing University, “Development of the Optical Measurement Technologies for Calibrating the Robot” by Professor Wen-Yuh, Jywe from National Formosa University, “Portable Healthcare Detecting Module Integrated with Smart Phone” by Professor Dar-Bin Shieh from National Cheng Kung University, “Saliva Protein as Biomarker for Oral Cancer” by Professor Jau-Song Yu from Chang Gung University, and “Balloon Pessary Minimally Invasive Medical Device Commercialization” by Professor Cheng-Yu Long from Kaohsiung Medical University.

The Ministry of Science and Technology’s “Academia-Industry Collaboration by Research Institutes Project” has built an Academia-Industry Collaboration platform

At the event, Chiou, Chyou-Huey, from the Department of Academia-Industry Collaboration and Science Park Affairs, MOST said that he expected to work with these public associations to hold the Exchange Forums and recommend academic technologies, which may have the potential to be commercialized. This will facilitate the interactions between academia and the industries, enabling the academic technologies to meet the industry needs, creating a wide variety of business opportunities and commercializing outstanding academic technologies.
Based on the great R&D momentum and industrial experience of “corporations,” the “Academia-Industry Collaboration by Research Institutes Project” provides value-added, field trial and start-up guidance services to help the commercialization of academic research results and establishment of start-ups, linking the academy circle with the industries, building a diverse academia-industry collaboration platform, making R&D technologies from universities meet industry needs, improving the application of each technology and developing academia-industry collaboration. This year, we have been working with the “Biomedical Innovation Clusters Integration Program,” “Taiwan Reputed University Startups to Taiwan Unicorns (The TRUST-U Program)” and “Global Research & Industry Alliance (GLORIA)” for better project resources integration as well as academia-industry collaboration and its promotion. The annual presentation will be held in Warehouse No.4 of the Songshan Cultural and Creative Park on November 6 and there will be nearly 50 successful academia-industry collaboration cases. Everyone is welcome to join us in this experience.
