Industrial Bridging and International Collaboration Group (IBIC)
The goal of Industrial Bridging and International Collaboration Group (IBIC) is dedicated to promote the academic/industrial collaboration in research and development activities of National Research Program for Biopharmaceuticals (NRPB) both nationally and internationally. It is anticipated that IBIC will enhance the capacity of national research and development, promote collaboration between academic, research and medical institutions, facilitate partnership with pharmaceutical and biotech industries. The successful partnerships will be facilitated through industrial alliance, co-development, technology transfer, licensing and win-win models to accelerate the commercialization of research results and expand the scale of Taiwan’s pharma/biotech industries.
Academia-Industry Bridging Program (AIBP)
The goal of the Academia-Industry Bridging Program (AIBP) under National Research Program for Biopharmaceuticals (NRPB) is to facilitate the transfer of research outputs from the academia to the industry for further development and commercialization. Research projects covered by NRPB, National Science and Technology Program for Biotechnology and Pharmaceuticals (NSTPBP) and National Research Program for Genomic Medicine (NRPGM), which involve nine medical centers, are screened for further assessment based on technology feasibility, market, regulation, competition and patent analyses. Project managers are then appointed to coordinate the legal, business and patent issues, as well as to monitor progress and coordinate licensing, partnering, alliance or spin-off activities.

  1. Screen and evaluate products and technologies with commercial potentials
  2. Identify and bridge drug development value chain gaps
  3. Facilitate potential products and technologies to establish start-up companies
  4. Facilitate international research and development collaborations
  5. Strengthen international technology transfer and promote scientific interactions
