HISTORY AND INTRODUCTION
Tjing Ling Industrial Research Institute (TLIRI) was established in March 1975 under the contract enteredvbetween National Taiwan University and Yen Tjing Ling Industrial Development Foundation, with the aim of engaging in engineering technology R&D, promoting the cooperation between industry and academia in order to facilitate our national economy growth and infrastructural development.
TLIRI building is located at No. 130, Section 3, Keelung Road, within the campus of the University. The entire building was donated by the Foundation and started to operate in March 1977.
TLIRI is a nonprofit research organization in the College of Engineering, National Taiwan Uni-versity. The running expenses of the Institute come from the service overhead. The Foundation also sponsors yearly research grant on a project base. TLIRI apportions service overhead to the University as feedback.
There is a supervisory council in TLIRI which takes charge of reviewing the development goals, activity plans and expenditure budget for TLIRI, and supervising its fulfillment and performance. The deanvof the College of Engineering is the chief commissioner of the council, and the dean of the College of Electrical Engineering and Computer. Science is the vice-chairman of the council. There is one director and one deputy-director in TLIRI acted by professors from the college of Engineering.
TLIRI is a bridge between the University and the outside body including industrial companies, government bodies and research organizations. The main activities of TLIRI fall into the categories of entrusted and cooperative research, professional training, industrial testing and international conference servicing, etc.
Prospective Technology Development
In order to promote the industry related tech-nological development, prospective research are financially sponsored by Yen Tjing Ling Industrial Development Foundation. The results are then transferred to related industries to help them improve their technology level or to develop new products.
Presently there are 20 research groups esta-blished with the scope ranging optoelectric technology, software engineering, manufacturing and processing, test & analysis, hydro tech-nology, system automation, material science technology and chemical engineering.
In addition to continuous self-development of new technology, every research group also accept the R&D and technology transfer entrusted by the outside bodies.
Cooperative Research Between Industry and Academia
TLIRI is very familiar with the R&D resource and expertise of the College of Engineering, the College of Electrical Engineering and Com-puter Science and other relative colleges, National Taiwan University. TLIRI is also at full of professional service experience for the cooperation between industry and academia. Based on the so-called win-win concept, it provides the ever-improving service for medium and administration management.
The agencies who have entrusted and are entrusting research cooperation include govern-ment, military, national business, corporate foun-dation and private enterprise, etc.
