Academic Community: Educational Cooperation

In addition to training professionals in related fields, TCI strives to cultivate talents in the biomedical industry such as leading research and development and project managers, so that the industry continues to grow and develop. TCI is actively involved in relevant academic and educational organizations to establish industry-academia cooperation, including: National Pingtung University of Science and Technology and Tajen University. TCI believes that domestic biomedical industry talents can be cultivated through educational cooperation.

The TCI Youth Cultivation Project cultivates the next generation of outstanding youth, from elementary school to universities, through organizing, co-organizing activities and camps. The Biotech Innovation BioCup Product Proposal Competition is jointly organized by TCI Academy and NTU BioEntrepreneurship Student Association. With in-person lectures by senior supervisors, bringing a wealth of practical courses, and leading the students to discover the actual operation process of the factory. In addition, elites from the same school can cooperate and discuss proposals to compete for the prize. The total prize of the competition is $60,000 NTD to encourage students to learn by doing and gain practical experience and ability in the biotech industry!

Collaboration with Academia - Industry-Academia Cooperation

As TCI aspires to be number one in the world, the Company must take people as the foundation, cultivate human resources and build a good foundation. To this end, we established the TCI ACADEMY, with the three core areas of  "Biological Sciences," "Humanistic Care," and "Art and Aesthetics," to provide a broader vision and platform by bridging the industry and academia through various forms of company visits and topic sharing.

The only non-government organization in Taiwan selected as one of the top ten popular science foundations in Taiwan

On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of World Earth Day in 2020, the Ministry of Education invited all five major science museums in Taiwan to plan the first “Taiwan Science Festival” and invited public and private institutions with scientific research capacity and science education connotation to be the “Top 10 Popular Sciences Foundation.” As the only private business organization selected, TCI held 1,000 factory receptions. 

Continuing the promotion of popular science education, in 2021, TCI collaborated with the National Museum of Natural Science to organize the special exhibition "From Sea to Land." The exhibition features vertebrates, introducing the evolution of animals from swimming in the sea, and walking on land to soaring in the sky. The Science Museum's science exhibitions are the starting point for inspiring scientific research. TCI has become a global leader in biotechnology thanks to the strong commitment of scientific talents in research and development. Through cooperation with the National Museum of Natural Science, TCI held a special exhibition at the Pingtung Rock Park for Pingtung students to have popular science resources, hoping to inspire young students to learn science and nurture future biological talents in Taiwan.

Community: Embracing the Crowd

TCI has long been involved in public welfare activities and care for remote villages in Pingtung. Driven by senior management, colleagues in all departments enthusiastically responded and implemented public welfare activities. Therefore, the notion of “Taken from society, give back to society" has been extended and passed down within the culture of the corporation for a long time.

Purchasing Pineapples from Shan-Dao Academy, Flipping Rural Disadvantages

Located in Gao-Shu Township, Pingtung County, Shan-Dao Academy's mission is "to integrate social reform into educational practice so that human civilization can develop sustainably and become more virtuous." Through education, skills training, community building, and the cultivation of fruits and vegetables, the school provides guidance for disadvantaged children and parents to pursue education and employment on their land and hopes to spread the school's philosophy to other rural areas, helping more children to grow up happily and in addition, assisting more disadvantaged families to turn their fortunes around. 

Impressed with the philosophy and commitment of Shan-Dao Academy, TCI has continued to work with the Academy since 2018 to purchase organic pineapples planted by children instead of donations. In addition to the children learning life skills with their own hands, the proceeds from buying pineapples fund counseling for children to achieve their dreams to reverse education and economic restraints. TCI plans to collaborate long-term with Shan-Dao Academy to create various values such as education for children, caring for disadvantaged families, and community building.

Established the Biodiversity Park, Creating Prosperity Through Restoration

In 2021, TCI cooperated with the National Pingtung University of Science and Technology to create Taiwan’s first industry-academia collaborative “Biodiversity Park.” The Park occupies 2.5 hectares of land. Soil preparation and irrigation system has been completed in the Park. The faculty and students of the National Pingtung University of Science and Technology completed the first ecological survey.
The “Biodiversity Park” is planned for the rehabilitation of Taiwan’s native plants, cultivation and production of functional biomedical crops, and low-carbon farming trials. The Park expects to cultivate various Taiwan native plants, such as Pothia, rose, Hibiscus sabdariffa, okra, Bignose Rhinacanthus, Chiapao melon, daylily, white wax apple, and others, to protect the biodiversity of local organisms. Then, through TCI's specialty, "Bio-Resource Data Mining Platform," to identify the healthcare and economic value of native plants. With the "IBD Raw Material Plant Production and Cultivation Talent Training Program," industry-academia cooperation provide students with an internship in the cultivation and production of functional biomedical crops in "Biodiversity Park."
The first soil carbon sink survey has been conducted in the Park and tested environmentally friendly farming methods with greater carbon sequestration benefits. After developing a complete methodology and experience, TCI will guide the farmers to switch to environmentally friendly farming methods and create a 1,000-hectare "Sunrises Farm" in Taiwan, planting cash crops such as Djulis and buckwheat. It is expected to increase crop yields, bring significant economic benefits to farmers, increase natural carbon sinks, and increase carbon reduction benefits. Ultimately realize "creating prosperity through restoration" - that is, ecological prosperity, industrial prosperity, and future prosperity.

Donation to the Taipei Orphan Welfare Foundation

Since 2016, TCI has worked with the Taipei Orphan Welfare Foundation every year to take practical action to protect orphans. At the end of each year, colleagues generously join the donation drive for scholarships, academic and academic advancement counseling, talent training, career exploration, employment, and entrepreneurship. After the individual donations, TCI doubled the total donations in the company's name and worked with the staff to protect orphans.
In 2021, TCI turns this internal donation campaign to the public and joins hands with the Taipei Orphan Welfare Foundation to release a Mother's Day video, "The Companion," and launch a campaign in which "for every like on the Facebook post, TCI will donate $100." This event hopes to remind the public to care for orphans through the power of the community. In addition to public communication, TCI also announced this message to its stakeholders (including customers) and invited them to interact with each other on social media to raise the voice of social welfare. The total amount of donation in 2021 amounted to NT$1.5 million.

Corner Bookshelf Helps Pingtung Students, Spreading the Seeds of Sustainability

A book can bring knowledge, new perspectives, hope, and opportunities. In 2016, TCI initiated the "Corner Bookshelf" project, starting in Pingtung's rural elementary schools, setting up bookshelves with books in schools to create a reading atmosphere, hoping to enable Pingtung's local rural children to break through geographical limitations and harbor a broader vision. In addition, to create a comprehensive carbon reduction network, TCI Academy promotes carbon reduction on campus by placing energy-saving and carbon-reducing books or picture books on the corner bookshelves so that the spirit of sustainability is deeply rooted in daily reading.
By the end of 2021, TCI established corner bookshelves in 218 elementary schools in Pingtung County and sponsored new books for students to borrow each month, creating regular reading opportunities for nearly 5,000 students. After completing the first phase of the corner bookshelf in rural elementary schools, the scope will gradually expand to other non-rural areas in Pingtung County and schools of all levels above the elementary school level, which expects to create reading opportunities for about 30,000 students.
