Accelerator

iCan

In order to fully activate the industrialization of R & D results in academic institutions, MOST(科技部)entrusted National Chiao Tung University to promote “Integrated Cross-campus Accelerator Network (iCAN)“(科技部研發成果創業加速及整合推廣計畫). It was officially launched in July, 2016. In 2018, it’s the second year to carry out this project. It introduces the pioneering practices of domestic and international accelerators to speed up scientific and technological R&D achievements in academic institutions. The project comprises government’s 5+2 innovative industries such as “Green Technology”, “Biotech Healthcare”, “Internet of Things”, “Smart Machinery”, “Defense Industry”, “New Agriculture” and “Recycling Economy“. Have intercollegiate startup teams selection and bring them into entrepreneurship accelerating ecosystem. The project also provides resource like mentoring, pitching, and consulting. We aim to raise funds and bring them into the world for start-ups.

IoT Farm

As the world getting more competitive, Taiwan manufacturing has encountered tough challenges in development and investment environment. In addition, it’s not the leading manufacturing technique being able to insure a company survival. Instead, it depends on how a company to provide innovative service and solve issue from customers. To be key players of global business, industrial development should be changed from efficiency─driving─economic system to innovation─driving─economic system. What IoT industries really emphasize is not the technique platform but the one for a robust business model . Now, IAPS is dedicated to leading domestic IoT ecosystem to integrate vertically and form an alliance with related industries. Hence, IoT StartupFarm is born!

Fog Computing Alliance

Taiwan which is strong in ICT industry has the best position to develop Fog node technologies. In this alliance, we will show them various use cases. Fog computing is a system-level horizontal architecture that distributes resources and services of computing, storage, control and networking anywhere along the continuum from Cloud to Things. By extending the cloud to be closer to the things that produce and act on IoT data, fog enables latency sensitive computing to be performed in proximity to the sensors, resulting in more efficient network bandwidth and more functional and efficient IoT solutions. Fog computing also offers greater business agility through deeper and faster insights, increased security and lower operating expenses. This project is ready to setup an alliance to help industrial member utilizing Fog computing.

IP Alliance

Companies from Taiwan encounter international patent litigations increasingly which indicates that their operation cost is going up no matter which results of lawsuits turn out, and what is more, patent attorneys hired by enterprises are suffering patent establishment, deployment, and maintenance issues due to the tendency of many enterprises to control budget on patent. Hence, introducing and integrating patent from academic institutions within limited budget are, otherwise the cost-effective solution. Based on the belief of sustainable development and international competitiveness enhancement for Taiwan local industries , IAPS actively negotiated with National Science Council, Ministry of Economic Affair, and Ministry of Education, and eventually gained recognition from these relevant ministries enabling IAPS to be the only incubation-accelerating center where are capable of patent transactions with industries through our IP studio without approval of National Science Council.”
