UK and Taiwan launch research mobility programme

The British government will provide £200,000 to strengthen research collaboration with Taiwan in emerging technologies, Robin Grimes, the chief scientific adviser for the Foreign Office has announced.

The funding will be spent over the next year through the UK-Taiwan Innovative Industries Programme (UKTW I2P), which Grimes launched with Taiwan’s vice-president Chen Chien-Jen during a trade visit to Taiwan on 21 March. The programme will support research collaboration in areas such as biotechnology, artificial intelligence, robotics, clean energy and autonomous vehicles.

The majority of the funding will support researchers from Taiwan to carry out research at UK universities and research institutes, the British Office Taipei said in a statement on 21 March. The remainder will be used to carry out sector analysis and bilateral visits, it said.
