Program Overview :

To strengthen Taiwan's position in the current global competition for talent, meet the need for scientific research manpower in Taiwan, attract talent back to Taiwan from overseas, and support the government's forward-looking infrastructure development and industrial innovation policies, the Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) initiated the Leaders in Future Trends (LIFT 1.0) Program in 2017. With the goals of stimulating industrial innovation and fostering technological leaps, this program has sought to recruit talent individuals from Taiwan studying and working aboard to contribute their expertise in Taiwan. Building on the foundation of LIFT 1.0, the 2020 LIFT Program 2.0 ("this Program") seeks to provide a platform for the establishment of connections between overseas talent and Taiwan’s industries, universities, and research institutes through both online and offline activities. Under this Program, qualified overseas talent will receive round-trip airfare and full subsidies for meals and accommodation in Taiwan. Arrangements will be made for participants to attend the "Leaders in Future Trends O2O Conference," and they will have opportunities to meet face-to-face with domestic firms, universities, and research organizations with the goal of finding employment opportunities in Taiwan.
