Call for participants

Forum Date

July 8-11(Wednesday-Saturday), 2015



Traditionally been thought of as the places for higher education and basic research, universities are currently situated in the crossroads of research, education and innovation.  It is vital that knowledge flows from universities into business and society. Therefore, universities also lie in the core of successful, leading economies in the world.

There are two main ways to propel technologies directly to industry by universities: licensing of intellectual property and initiation of start-up companies. Effective transformations of fundamental research to intellectual property commercialization rely on deliberate incubation. Additionally, campus entrepreneurship also needs to be promoted. Cooperation between universities and the industry will intensify inventions into innovations. From a BRIDGE perspective, strategic plans must be developed by universities to pursue and establish partnerships with the industry, in order to meet today’s challenges and create the future opportunities, which is indeed the perpetually mission of universities.

2015 SATU Summer Intensive Program- Southeast and South Asia and Taiwan Industry-Academia Collaboration Trend Forum is organized by Institute of International Management, Medical Device Innovation Center and SATU International Secretariat in National Cheng Kung University (NCKU). This forum is aiming to emphasize the current trend of Industry-Academia Collaboration and bring higher education into a new era. Hopefully, this will bring novel ideas to our participants from Southeast and South Asia and Taiwan member universities.

Through this forum, we are confident to increase, strengthen, support and coordinate the research network and craft the potentially feasible and applicable adaptations or strategies for future policies in respective countries.
