“In Taiwan, we traditionally looked at the development of high-tech industry from the mere perspectives of science and technology. However, with the changes in international geopolitics, science and technology have crossed national borders and transcended the gap amongst people and policies that ultimately bring impacts on society stability, diplomacy and mutual trust. It becomes clear therefore that in Taiwan’s next phase of high tech development, we cannot ignore the connections and effects in other related disciplines resulting from the advancement of science and technology, such as laws and regulations, finances and managements, social impacts, global relationships, etc. Consequently, as a higher education institution we must also conduct education and research in these highly specific but relevant fields critical to technology-driven industrial transformation."
