Taiwan signs cooperation pact with Stanford University
San Francisco, April 4 (CNA) Taiwan's Ministry of Science and Technology signed an agreement with Stanford University on Tuesday to cooperate in talent development, as part of an effort to encourage more young Taiwanese adults to pursue careers or attend academic exchange programs in Silicon Valley.
Minister of Science and Technology Chen Liang-gee, who signed the agreement with a representative from the university and is on a 10-day visit to the United States, said he will also sign cooperation pacts with University of California, Berkeley, and 20 local start-ups, to launch cooperation in cultivating talent.
Through the cooperation, it is hoped that exceptional Taiwanese professionals in the field of technology will learn about innovation in Silicon Valley and share their experience when they return to Taiwan, Chen said.
Chang Ying-chih, a visiting professor at Stanford, which is in the heart of California's Silicon Valley, said that under the new cooperation project, four Taiwanese scholars in the areas of materials science, biomedical engineering, energy and the environment will spend at least one year at the university participating in related experiments.
Meanwhile, Chen noted that the visit is also aimed at seeking closer exchanges between Taiwan and Silicon Valley in the area of artificial intelligence (AI).
Chen and his delegation also visited tech giants IBM and Intel, as well as several start-ups, to discuss AI technology.
Following the visit to San Francisco, Chen was scheduled to visit Boston and is set to return to Taiwan on April 10. (Courtesy of CNA)
