Be part of the UK-Taiwan Academic-Industry & Technology Transfer Collaboration Forum

The UK-Taiwan Academic-Industry & Technology Transfer Collaboration Forum, organised by the Science and Innovation Network Taipei and the British Council Taipei, will take place on 14 September 2012 at the Royal Society of Chemistry in London.    The Forum is designed for:

  •     Researchers interested in building academic-industry links with top HEIs from Taiwan.
  •     Academics operating in technology transfer wishing to access manufacturers in Taiwan.
  •     Practitioners involved in university-business collaborations looking to expand networks in greater China.
  •     Administrators experienced in facilitating academics working with commercial sectors willing to exchange views with Taiwanese counterparts.

With support from the National Science Council in Taiwan, the forum provides an opportunity to exchange knowledge and experience of academic-industry cooperation and technology transfer, to generate ideas and forge partnerships. It also aims to identify opportunities for university-business collaborations, develop potential working models and schemes, and explore possible strategies for collaboration in technology transfer between the UK and Taiwan.

Confirmed participants from Taiwan include approximately 20 representatives from the Taiwan Top Universities Alliance, Academia Sinica, Industrial Technology Research Institute of Taiwan (ITRI), National Applied Research Laboratories (NARL) and the National Science Council (NSC).
