The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the R.O.C. arranged for a delegation of parliament members from the Baltic States (Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia) led by the Hon. Ainars Latkovskis, Chairman of the Group for Interparliamentary Relations with Taiwan, to visit Taiwan Tech on July 13th (Thursday) in the afternoon. The delegation was accompanied by Deputy Counselor of the Department of European Affairs Hsu Wei-Ming to exchange ideas on the current status of the education of young talent in the various fields of science and technology as well as the development of the information technology industry in Taiwan. They were received by Taiwan Tech President Liao Ching-Jong, Vice President Chu Yi-Hsu, Dean of the Office of Research and Development Chu Jinn, Dean of the College of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Huang Bohr-Ran, Dean of the School of Management Pin-Ruarn, Associate Professor Chin Tai-Lin of the Department of Computer Science and Information Engineering, and Director of the International Education Section Alicia D. Lloyd.
 
Director Alicia D. Lloyd provided a detailed introduction to the special features and achievements of Taiwan Tech’s research and development, to which the guests responded with enthusiastic affirmation. Both sides engaged in a lively exchange and discussion on the topics of education reform and development in Taiwan, university-industry collaboration, teacher training, and instructional evaluation, as well as the allocation of government resources. The meeting finished successfully with an exchange of souvenirs and a group photo session.
 
Since 2012, Taiwan Tech has signed collaboration agreements with three top universities in the Baltic States, namely Riga Technical University, Tallinn University of Technology and Vilnius Gediminas Technical University. Both sides select students for exchange. To date, 9 students have come to study at Taiwan Tech, and Taiwan Tech has sent 27 students to these universities. In 2016, Taiwan Tech and Lithuania’s Vilnius Gediminas Technical University jointly applied to the EU for the “Erasmus + Mobility Program” and successfully obtained funding for one exchange faculty member and one exchange student. It is anticipated that this in-person visit and discussion will help to deepen mutual friendship and develop more diversified collaboration in the future.
