Research and development is never a one man’s job. In order to reach for more cross-domain collaboration as well as to provide students a more opportunities to learning, Taipei Tech has joined the University system of Taipei since 2011. Many joint R&D results came along under cooperation between the University and its academia partners at home and overseas. To share our achievements with the public, the 2017 joint outcome conference was hosted by Taipei Tech on campus on June 9.
In order to develop PEV (Persuasive Electric Vehicle) technology and make smart city comes true as soon as possible, MIT and Taipei Tech would like to establish the City Science Lab@ Taipei Tech (CSL @ Taipei Tech) using the City of Taipei as a living lab to test and evaluate urban innovation developed by the City Science Initiative at the Media Lab and at Taipei Tech and to foster a mutually beneficial collaboration. The signing ceremony was held on March 29
The 2017 Bangkok International Intellectual Property, Invention, Innovation and Technology Exposition (IPITEx 2017) was held in Bangkok during February 2 to 6. Taiwan delegation had an outstanding performance getting 4 gold medals, 4 silver medals, and 1 bronze medal in this competition.

“I hope that I can have a mouth pen to write with” said Xuan-han Wang, a junior high school student at National Hualien Senior High School who suffered from a rare disease called Achondroplasia. This disease affects Wang’s hands and legs, and the only way he can write is to lie on a table and hold a mouth pen. Nevertheless, this special pen made from Japan is going to stop production soon. Without this mouth pen, writing for Wang, seems to become even harder. Jia-chang Wang, Associate Professor from the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Taipei Tech, lead a 3D print team to make a new mouth pen for Wang. From booking train tickets to carry heavy professional equipment, Wang’s team went to Hualien 3 times conducting a customized mouth pen and assistive device for Xuan-han.
Since Taiwan is gradually entering an aging society, long-term care become more and more important. Taipei Tech gathered professors in related fields to form a long-term care research team.
