NCKU and CSC Activate Research on Next-Generation Steel Business Wire TAINAN, Taiwan -- September 16, 2013 With hundreds of millions of funding in the coming years, National Cheng Kung University (NCKU) and China Steel Corporation (CSC) would go all out to enhance the research and development (R&D) and production of high-grade steel in Taiwan, the university revealed at a recent meeting. The “Next-Generation Steel and Green Manufacturing Process and Product Innovation and Application Academia-Industry Collaboration Project,” an Academia-Industry Alliance Program jointly formed by NCKU and CSC, organized a meeting, September 7, to decide on various issues related to the collaboration between both parties. To increase both the industry’s and related industry’s output value to NTD300 billion respectively will achieve optimized benefits for the industry chain, supply chain and value chain of the steel industry, according to CSC. The Academia-Industry Alliance Program was proposed by the National Science Council (NSC), with a view to allow the industry to provide questions and the academia to come up with solutions to these questions. NCKU Vice President Dr. Huey-Hen Su welcomed the arrival of academic scholars and experts to the meeting on behalf of NCKU President Hwung-Hweng Hwung. Su pointed out that what distinguishes NCKU from others is her research capability to assist the industry. “Previously, the NCKU was ranked between 30^th and 50^th in the world in the field of materials science and engineering-related research,” explained Su. “Research funding from the industry also occupies a higher percentage in NCKU’s total funding; in other words, a research university like NCKU possesses great strength in competition-based plans.” CSC Chairman Juo-Chi Tsou expressed his gratitude to many of the academicians involved in this research and collaboration project. The NCKU-CSC joint academia-industry collaboration project focuses on the industry’s forward development program to be applied on advanced fuel-efficient vehicles and offshore wind turbines. The director of this project, NCKU Department of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) Chair Professor Dr. Weng-Sing Hwang said, “This project will be executed based on three main focuses - next-generation steel product research and development, next-generation green manufacturing process and next-generation innovative applications.” “What is meant by ‘next-generation steel’ is steel materials with doubled product quality and doubled product life,” explained Hwang.
