Opportunities from NSC
  • Elite Project
    The reason that the NSC uses the name “Po Lo” for ” Elite Project”in English to designate the program is highly symbolic. Elites were a legendary figure who is well-known for his abilities to spot and recognize “horses of one thousand miles” (excellent horses that can run far and fast). The Elite Project is meant to recognize and recruit Taiwan’s “best and the brightest” abroad who are capable of transferring new technologies to Taiwan’s industries. On the other hand, those who are invited back to Taiwan would hope to meet the Po Los who can recognize and appreciate their forte and expertise.

    The project recruits primarily through the NSC’s Science-technology Division attached to Taiwan’s official mission overseas (usually under the name of Taipei Economic and Cultural Office), which identifies and recommends the potential candidates to apply. The evaluation committee set up by NARL would then screen and select the applicants. Overseas senior professionals specialized in the following key fields are given precedence by the recruitment office.1) Basic sciences, 2) biomedical science and technology, 3) image displays, 4) digital contents,5) information and communication technology, 6) semiconductors, 7) energy science and technology, 8) environmental science, oceanography and natural disasters, 9) nano and advanced material science and technology, 10) key service industries, 11) international law and politics, and 12) humanities and arts.

    The Project invites 20-25 elite professionals annually and pays for their round-trip airfare and perdiem expenses for a duration ranging from one to three months. The NARL helps set up their visits to local agencies. Through their lectures, seminars, short-term courses or joint research endeavors, the invitees can thus demonstrate their expertise and speciality, and share their experience in problem solving and managerial know how with the local audiences. Such kinds of interactions facilitate possible follow-up collaboration between the invitees and local organizations.
