ITRI reaching out to foreign IoT start-ups

Taiwan’s renowned government-backed Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) is inviting foreign IoT start-ups to visit Taiwan to learn about the island’s electronics industry.

ITRI brought advanced IC processing toTaiwan in 1976 by licensing RCA’s 7micron CMOS process and then proceeding to scale it over subsequent generations while spinning it off, along the way, into start-ups like UMC. 

The project is called Taiwan Innovation & Technology Arena (TITAN) and involves 10 youth IoT startups selected from the US, Belgium, Canada, Finland, Mexico, Singapore and Spain which will will join six counterparts from Taiwan. 

The visitors will learn about possible local partners, production opportunities and how the Taiwan supply chain works. 

Each start-up gets a grant of NT$600,000, and they will be allowed to stay in Taiwan for six months. 

Taiwan’s minister for science and technology, Chen Liang-gee, says TITAN is aimed at cultivating international talent and introducing innovation startups into the country, aiming to systematically build linkages between Taiwan’s startup ecosystem and international funds and talent, and accelerate the development of next-generation IoT technologies and applications.
