Building Innovation Models of Taiwan’s Industries with University-Industry Partnerships Student: Wen-Shiow Hsu Advisor: Dr. Pao-Long Chang National Chiao Tung University Institute of Business and Management Abstract The main purpose of this study was to examine and identify the proper innovation models of Taiwan’s industries with an emphasis in utilizing the university-industry partnership as a basis for the creation of industrial innovations. Starting from collecting, integrating, and analyzing all information related to industrial innovations and university-industry partnerships, a core concept was developed. This core concept was then used as a tool to examine the ins and outs on the status of innovation in Taiwan and to analyze the interactions among government, academia, and industries. After assimilating all related information, this research extracted the key factors relating to the establishment of the university-industry partnership and its collaboration process. Based on these key factors, the frame structure related to the industrial innovation models that were developed with the university-industry collaboration partnership basis was further pursued in order to facilitate case studies. The case studies of this research paper, which include the university-industry collaborative projects funded by Taiwan’s National Science Council, were used to verify the validity of the industrial innovative processing configurations proposed. These case studies indicate that the innovative process within university-industry partnerships can foster concurrent development of products and process innovations such that they can be used to compensate for the lack of R&D resources and innovative capabilities within enterprises. The partnership relationship can also be used to solve the many problems that hinder the government funding process for industries and their R&D efforts, such as (1) improving the technology transfer methodology in order to eliminate the drawbacks of not being able to simultaneously achieve a R&D process time reduction and to reap enterprise R&D benefits, (2) introducing radical innovation into the industrial R&D processes including new technological information, new concepts, and new innovations that are desperately needed for product development, and (3) incubating R&D personnel within industries. The results obtained from these case studies verify the effectiveness and validity of the conceptual core structure proposed in this research. It is expected that the successful establishment of these modes can provide the government with a roadmap to plan, promote, support, and fund more successful industrial R&D innovations in Taiwan. Key Words: industrial innovation, university-industry partnerships, innovative process, radical.
