The Industrial Technology Research Institute(ITRI) cooperated with the Kaohsiung City Government to connect universities in the South of Taiwan (including National Sun Yat-sen University, National Kaohsiung University of Science and Technology, National Pingtung University of Science and Technology, Kaohsiung Medical University and National Penghu University of Science and Technology) and set up five Southern Taiwan Interdisciplinary center for Innovative Technologies in 1995 to develop technology and industry research, and based on industrial needs to assist industrial transformation and innovation in southern Taiwan.
The goal of this center is to become a database for academic research teams. By providing useful information about the market, assist academic research teams in building appropriate business models, promote team connections and cooperation with manufacturers, and establish industrial ecosystem. By measuring the new markets and local industries of southern Taiwan (agriculture, metals, marine, medical device, Fun-Tech, circular economy, financial technology), and searching domestic and foreign research as the basis of a think tank, the center will integrate the energy of government-industry-university-institute and make National Sun Yat-sen University be a major platform and think tank for industry and government of southern Taiwan.
This plan promotes the goal: build a rural platform ecosystem, integrate resources from government, industry, research, and research as key agricultural activities, improve efficiency and performance, and promote the value creation of all stakeholders; (3) use new technologies to integrate virtual and physical channels Let farmers directly connect to the market, grasp demand, and promote growth. Drive focus, execution strategies and methods
Inventory the industrial market needs and technological developments in the agricultural, metal, medical equipment, and marine industries of southern Taiwan, assist industry-government-academic-industry cross-disciplinary cooperation, and guide the industrial development in southern Taiwan. The actual performance includes support for the future development feasibility and business of start-ups in these areas.
Assist agriculture, metals, marine, medical device, Fun-Tech, circular economy and financial technology to explore new opportunities, and link industry-university-academic-research cooperation to integrate international industry trends and the information of southern Taiwan.
Fiber-reinforced plastic composite materials are widely used in the shipbuilding industry. At present, Taiwan's large-scale yacht production has ranked among the top five in the world, and it is actively producing the nation's foundry business. This project studies and analyzes the dynamic performance of different composite ship structures, evaluates the various loads they receive, and then analyzes the composite hull structure with finite elements to achieve a lightweight ship with personnel comfort, hull and equipment safety.
Based on the development of industry, livelihood economy and smart technology, Kaohsiung would deeply cultivate through the incubation of fin-tech and financial innovation new teams and related companies of industry chain, Kaohsiung hoped to cooperate with the policy goal of transforming smart cities to drive the next wave Peak development of the industry and livelihood economy. The "basic metals (steel industry)" and "fasteners" industries in the mass production industry had formed a complete industrial cluster and industrial chain ecology in southern Taiwan. This plan analyzed the opportunities of Kaohsiung's traditional manufacturing industry docking and the development of fin-tech, evaluated the important issues, possible innovative services, and proposed possible solutions.
Therefore, the purpose of this project is to design and develop an innovative business model for Taiwanese agriculture. Complying with our government’s 5+2 innovative industry policy, we have considered emergent technologies, new business models and social realization factors, along with an integrated concept of the agricultural industry, village, and farmer to develop creative solutions.
This project as a whole includes one main project and three sub-projects. An innovative business model integrates emergent technology with stakeholders (e.g., farmers, government agencies, suppliers, wholesalers) and collaborative activities that enables the development of a healthy eco-system, enhances value co-creation and creates greater job opportunities within the Taiwanese agricultural sector, thereby, solving the aforementioned problems.
With the rapid expansion of e-commerce (EC) ecosystem, some rural EC clusters have also appeared in China since the mid-2000s, and have come to be known as “Taobao Villages”. A successful leader must have an environment of knowledge, technology, previous experience, trust, and support. However, the leadership development of grass-roots entrepreneurs (such as leaders in Taobao Village) that we see is not necessarily a necessary condition.Therefore, there is a need to investigate: (a) What factors enable interfirm co-production in a supply chain context? (b) What key properties define interfirm co-production (i.e. process synchronization and resource pooling) between firms and their supply chain partners? (c). What new value (i.e. reciprocal benefits) is jointly created through co-production?
