Carnegie Mellon has sealed an agreement with Taiwanese officials establishing new research and educational outreach programs with the Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI). "Signing the agreement, marks the beginning of a long-term relationship," said Carnegie Mellon Provost Mark Kamlet. "We will work jointly with ITRI to identify future key technical areas of research."

Research at the government-sponsored ITRI lab will focus on circuit design and applications in communication, information technology, computer and consumer electronics, and multimedia.

"The lab is an important part of our strategy to integrate research in various centers, and it will be funded at about $1 million a year," said Pradeep Khosla, head of Carnegie Mellon's Electrical and Computer Engineering Department. The information technology industry accounts for 10 percent of the U.S. economy and nearly 60 percent of business capital spending.

"The new research lab also is designed to contribute significantly to technology developments in Taiwan and Asia," said Tsuhan Chen, a Carnegie Mellon professor and co-director of the ITRI Lab along with Shiaw-Shian Yu at ITRI in Taiwan. [January 2003]
