Open UniverCity Achievements Exhibition at City Hall

Open UniverCity Achievements Exhibition at City Hall

The collaboration between Taipei City Government and National Taiwan University, the NTU@Taipei Open UniverCity Project is holding an exhibition of its achievements at the first floor lobby of city hall from January 9 through 11.

According to the Department of Information Technology (DOIT), the project establishes a link among faculty, students, and city agencies to allow the application of innovative solutions to tackle urban problems.

Highlighting the mayor’s emphasis on the value of “Open Government, Public Participation,” the Open UniverCity Project task force has worked on strengthening partnership with the city government since 2016. Commissioners from the departments of transportation, social welfare, and information technology have taken parts in sessions comprising students and professors. Numerous real-world issues have been presented to stimulate innovative thinking among the participants.

DOIT Commissioner Lee Wei-bin and NTU acting president TW Kuo attended the opening ceremony on January 10. Lee remarked that the exhibition is an important landmark for future collaboration in the project between the two sides.

Prior to the beginning of the 2017 fall quarter, the task force invited project instructors, teaching assistants, and city agencies to take part in a preparation workshop to discuss implementation. After the end of the quarter, students enrolled in seven university courses came up with various solutions to answering city affair challenges, providing invaluable reference materials for city hall.
