Technology has the capability to change the world and improve the quality of life for people all over the world. The 2013 Symposium on Technology for the Future, sponsored by Arizona State University, National Science Council, and AZ-TW Society of Technology takes place on Saturday, September 14, 2013 from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm.
This symposium will facilitate research scientists and business leaders from Taiwan and Arizona to discuss and present their views and visions of the future. The goal is to create a platform so that people from Taiwan and people from Arizona can work together on new research projects, and to create joint business ventures. Arizona has many outstanding research and business programs such as sustainability, and Taiwan is well-known for its technology innovation and business acumen.
Terence Chang is one of the board of directors at AZ-TW Society of Technology. He shares, “AZ-TW plays an important role to facilitate the technology exchange between Taiwan and Arizona. Our mission is to bring more high tech jobs and business opportunities to local Arizona, while building a solid innovation and collaboration relations between the two. We started this non-profit organization in Feb, 2013. We plan to work with major high-tech companies in Arizona to offer job pool and to match high tech work force.”
Chang continues, “An example of this is International Turbine Engine Company(ITEC) which is a shared company between Honeywell and a Taiwan. They work together to utilize the funding from Taiwan and the high tech resources in the US to produce world first class fighter jet engines, and sell around the world. It not only creates job opportunities, but also creates win-win business.”
