ITRI showcases 16 innovations at RIN CEOs meeting

ITRI showcases 16 innovations at RIN CEOs meeting

2024-03-28

For the first time ever, Europe’s Research International Network, or RIN, held its CEOs meeting in Asia this year. The event took place this week in Hsinchu. The Industrial Technology Research Institute, or ITRI, showcased 16 of its overseas collaborations, which tackle challenges including labor shortages and climate change.

One arm picks up a wrench, and another attaches a part to one end. The hand tool industry traditionally relies on manual labor. But this artificial intelligence system can use dual robots to revolutionize assembly, offering enterprises a solution to the labor shortage. This is just one of the groundbreaking technologies developed by the Industrial Technology Research Institute, or ITRI.

Another highlight is this design for solar panel modules that are easily dismantled. Traditional encapsulation materials for modules are a challenge to remove, preventing the full recycling of solar cells and glass plates. But this new technology allows the recovery of high-purity silicon wafers that can be reused. For over 20 years now, ITRI has been a member of the European Trade Association of Research and Technology Organisations. The association’s RTOs International Network, or RIN, held its yearly CEOs meeting in Asia for the first time this year. Following Taiwan’s successful hosting bid, the event opened on March 26, showcasing cutting-edge technologies.

Taiwan Textile Research Institute developed an eco-friendly conductive ink, which has earned an R&D 100 Award and a gold Edison Award. In addition, there’s a collaboration with Germany’s largest research organization, called the Fraunhofer. It’s an autonomous adaptive robot for welding large structural parts.

At the event, ITRI showed 16 of its overseas collaborations. Some have already been adopted by corporations at home and abroad. They include a low-temperature catalyst technology for reutilizing carbon dioxide. ITRI Senior Vice President Stephen Su, who recently became RIN chair, said ITRI was working to enhance the global competitiveness of Taiwan’s industries.

Stephen Su
ITRI senior vice president and RIN chair
We were able to secure the position of chair in this international organization. Backed by international legislation, we want to promote Taiwan’s innovative technologies to the world, to help our industries be internationally competitive and achieve a certain position globally.

Edwin Liu
ITRI president
This will facilitate our integration with the world. We were also able to share some of our thinking behind the 2035 Technology Strategy & Roadmap with research organizations around the world.

Since its founding five years ago, the RIN has become Europe’s largest networking platform for global applied research and technology organizations. ITRI is striving to make its mark in the organization, and to ensure Taiwan’s industries stay ahead of the game with forward-thinking strategies.

RIN亞洲辦年會 首站台灣! 工研院秀"金牌"交流

2024-03-28

台灣工研院加入歐洲最大規模的研發組織協會,已經有20年歷史,旗下的RIN,研究國際組織年會首度移師到亞洲舉行,選在台灣,26、27日盛大登場,工研院展出16項國際合作成果,準備導入企業,解決缺工和達成淨零碳排目標。

夾起扳手,和另一端的零件組裝在一塊,以往手工具產業要組裝通通得用人力,有了AI組裝系統,靠著雙機器人,導入企業,解決缺工問題,工研院大秀肌肉,厲害的關鍵技術不只這項。

這套易拆解的太陽能模組,解決傳統封膜,根本無法完整保存太陽能板廢棄材料,這技術,能得到高純度的再生晶片,回收再利用,工研院加入歐洲最大規模研發組織協會超過20年,旗下的RIN首長年會,首度移師到亞洲,台灣成功爭取,26、27號盛大登場,亮點技術還有這些。

“紡織研究所他們所研發出來這個項目,它是做一個環保導電的墨水跟漿料,它是同時有得到RD100,跟愛迪生獎的金牌肯定。除此之外,我們跟德國最大的研究機構,叫做Fraunhofer,是用一種自走式適應性的機器人,來進行這種大型的結構件的焊接。”

16項國際合作成果有的已經導入國內外企業,這項低溫觸媒轉化技術,將二氧化碳再利用,剛接下RIN主席的工研院資深副總蘇孟宗力拼替產業提升國際競爭力。

“我們爭取到成為這個國際的組織的主席,然後聯合這些國際的法案,把台灣創新科技的研發成果,推展出去,幫助我們的產業在國際競爭力,能夠有提升到某一個地位。”

[[工研院院長 劉文雄]]
“可以更快的跟國際來接軌,那也可以把我們2035技術,策略藍圖的一些思考的一些方式,可以跟世界各國的研究組織來做分享。”

RIN已成立五年,是歐洲最大的國際應用研發機構平台,工研院嶄露頭角,也讓國內企業不落人後,超前部署。
