Abstract:
The Tainan Hydraulics Laboratory of National Cheng Kung University (NCKU) in Taiwan and the College of Engineering, Mathematical and Physical Sciences of University College Dublin (UCD) - National University of Ireland, Dublin, have finalized a partnership agreement and signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), covering student and faculty exchange and research collaboration on cultural, technological and scientific cooperation. An area of special interest is the collaboration in the field of renewable energy. This agreement can be successfully established thanks to the efforts from Taipei Representative Office in Ireland.

NCKU Signed New Partnership With Ireland

TAINAN, Taiwan and Ireland | Posted on December 26th, 2008

The MOU was signed on Friday, December 26th, 2008, by Professor Hweng-Hwung Hwung, the NCKU Senior Executive Vice President (SEVP) and Professor Chen-Ching Liu, Associate Dean of the UCD College of Engineering, Mathematical and Physical Sciences.

Professor Hweng-Hwung Hwung said that Ireland and Taiwan have in common geography, oceanic resource, technology advancement and economic development. "It is expected that the academic research, industry development and global reputation could be promoted through the communication and collaboration between both sides," added Professor Hwung, the SEVP of NCKU.

Professor Chen-Ching Liu of UCD expected more university-scale academic activities undergoing in the future after inking the MOU, instead of currently limited topics on energy and hydraulics. "UCD is interested in not only energy, but also in biology, medicine and nanotechnology," added Professor Liu from UCD.

Professor Hwung stressed that after singing the MOU, more communications and substantial collaborations should be taken into practice. "The NCKU Tainan Hydraulics Laboratory could be activated as the onset point of collaboration, such as to co-organize conferences, and professors should be encouraged to seek long-term substantial collaboration," said Professor Hwung. In addition, Professor Hwung, the NCKU SEVP, also promised to financially support the collaboration between both sides.

Based on the MOU, both institutions agree to the following general forms of cooperation: 1. Joint research activities; 2. Exchange of invitations to scholars for lectures, talks, and participation in conferences, colloquia and symposia; 3. Exchange of information in fields of interest to both institutions; 4. Exchange of faculty and research personnel for study and research; and 5. Special short-term academic/scientific programs.

University College Dublin (UCD), formally known as University College Dublin - National University of Ireland, Dublin (An Coláiste Ollscoile, Baile Átha Cliath - Ollscoil na hÉireann, Baile Átha Cliath) is Ireland's largest university, with over 1,300 faculty and 23,000 students. Located in Dublin, capital of Ireland, UCD was founded in 1854 as the Catholic University of Ireland with John Henry Newman as the first rector. Mr. James Joyce, viewed as the most influential writer in the 20th century, was one of the famous UCD alumni. The University consists of five colleges: College of Arts & Celtic Studies; College of Business & Law; College of Engineering, Mathematical & Physical Sciences; College of Human Sciences and College of Life Sciences. College of Engineering, Mathematical & Physical Sciences currently has seven schools, including School of Architecture, Landscape & Civil Engineering, School of Chemical & Bioprocess Engineering, School of Computer Science & Informatics, School of Electrical, Electronic & Mechanical Engineering, School of Geological Sciences, School of Mathematical Sciences and School of Physics.

Professor Chen-Ching Liu had served as a professor in University of Washington and University of Iowa for more than 25 years before he was appointed as the Associate Dean of College of Engineering, Mathematical & Physical Sciences in UCD, Ireland.
