2015 Staff Exchange Program between STPI and KISTI Successfully Finished in November 2015

The annual staff exchange program between STPI and Korea Institute of Science and Technology Information (KISTI) comes to a successful end in November. The staff dispatched this year include IT professional and planning administrator. The theme of visit in Korea focuses on the latest development of Big Data industry and science and technology innovation (STI) policy, while the visit in Taiwan focuses on sci-tech policies and cloud computing.

2 KISTI delegates meet with representatives from Divisions of Policy Research, Databases and Information Services, Innovation & Entrepreneurship Promotion and Information Management in 4 independent sessions.  They gain in-depth understanding of not only each Division’s tasks and achievements but STPI’s supporting tasks to the Ministry of Science and Technology during the meetings.  They also meet with researchers in National Center for High-performance Computing (NCHC) to better understand how NCHC strengthens Taiwan’s high performance computing and networking infrastructure.

This year, instead of one-on-one receiving program taken place every year, KISTI invites 7 delegates from 4 nations to participate in “2015 KISTI Global Academy”.  Experts from Taiwan, Vietnam, Thailand and Republic of Kazakhstan join a 5-day visit program designed to build up a sustainable international cooperation network.  These delegates are introduced to KISTI’s science information service platform, SME support and supercomputing infrastructure application during the intensive visit schedule.  They also have the opportunity to learn from each participating nation’s latest development in S&T information management.

The collaborative partnership between STPI and KISTI has been established for over 4 decades.  Both institutes play significant roles in supporting the government in sci-tech information management and mechanism enhancement.  The annual staff exchange program enables both institutes to update each other’s latest development in significant projects and observations.
