2 Taiwan’s Information/Electronics Industry zMake decent products affordable for the mass ye.g., $99 that satisfies 90% of the customers zSmall-sized, specialized companies y“Only when I come to Taiwan can I realize that motherboard is an industry by itself.” -- A. Grove zNo standard setter zLive on slim margin zVery little long-term R&D

3 Taiwan’s Universities zProfessors’ life is easy although pay is low zKind of semi-communism zVery good for self-motivated professors y$3,000 per year per student zIndustrial cooperation is encouraged, morally

5 The P7 Project zHigh-Performance CPU z3 years, NT$150M (US$5M) zNSC 80%, Industry (3 companies) 20% zNCTU-led multiple universities involvement

6 Organization for collaboration between universities and industries zMOEA funds ITRI; ITRI carries out projects cooperating with university and industry (kind of subcontract) zNSC runs an Industry-Academia Collaboration Fund zUniversity-run incubators (46 centers)
