Excellence in Key Advantages Program (NTU Core Consortiums and Competitiveness Programs)

The purpose of this project is to acquire resources external to the University with the spirit of a seed program, to foster new talent and an exceptional generation of researchers, and to establish core research capabilities that represent NTU.

Eligibility

A full-time NTU faculty member or research fellow on regular payroll may receive subsidies for at most one ORD-sanctioned research project (including the Excellence in Key Advantages Program--for the most competitive talent cultivation in internationally competitive research areas; Academic Research--Career Development Project: Sprout and Jade Picking Projects). Those involved in more than one such project will receive subsidies for only one of them.

3. The Project's Chief Investigator must also be the Principal Investigator of one of the project's Subprojects

 

(2) Principal Investigator of a Subproject

1. the Principal Investigator of a Subproject must be a full-time NTU faculty member or research fellow on regular payroll. Once the list has been approved, no changes to the Chief Investigator of the Main Project or the Principal Investigator of a Subproject may be made.

2. An approved list may only be assigned to the Principal Investigator of a Subproject (which may have at most one approved list)

3. Project team members: At least one-third of the Principal Investigators of the Subprojects must be assistant/associate professor/research fellow or faculty members/researchers who have officially been appointed but whose employment has not yet commenced.

Project framework (individual research projects are not supported)

1. Number of Subprojects: 3 (minimum) to 6 (maximum); no subsidies are provided if fewer than 3 Subprojects

2. For a research team that is already in the process of implementing this project and has been notified, at the time of approval, of its preapproval until Dec. 31, 2021 or Dec. 31, 2022, no additional applications may be submitted.

3. For those who have received ORD matching funds such as grants for Academic Research Career Development Laurel Project or funds from the Excellence Research Center (including grants for both the Main Project and the Subproject), the conclusions of the proposal's review and the University's overall budget will be taken into consideration before a decision on funding can be made.

Subsidy Period and Amount

(1) Duration of project planning and funding: Jan. 1, 2021 to Dec. 31, 2023 (for a total of 3 years), subject to the conclusions of the proposal's review.

(2) Amount of funding available: The maximum grant amount for each subprogram is NT$500,000 in principle. This cap may be raised to NT$1 million if it is necessary to acquire consumables and/or instruments for conducting experiments, subject to the conclusions of the proposal's review and the University's overall budget. 
(3) The Requested Budget for Entire Term of Project Period is not required during the project application stage. The necessary budget will be allocated upon recommendation and successful application.
