ITRI’s Public Welfare Committee.

ITRI’s core mission is to promote industrial transformation and upgrading to create economic value with multidisciplinary state-of-the-art technologies, while at the same time applying innovations to solve social issues and improve people’s well-being. ITRI established its Public Welfare Committee in 2011 to support social welfare services through technology applications, technology education, and corporate volunteering, in the hopes of spreading its care for communities, creating a sustainable environment, and expanding the impact of science and technology throughout society.

Technology Helps Create a Better Society

To date, ITRI has introduced over 50 technologies that promote public welfare. This year, ITRI developed a user-friendly overseas patient medical system. This system integrates information equipment and service system software platforms to assist volunteer teams from Taiwan in providing free clinics abroad and in disaster areas. Furthermore, ITRI utilized low resistance water source detectors and EleClean, a disinfecting spray, to meet the need for clean water and environmental hygiene in disaster zones. ITRI’s innovative technology in smart machinery and biomedical devices has assisted those with mobility-related disabilities, seniors, and patients. For instance, ITRI developed the Smart Oven, which improves production efficiency at baking facilities for children with disabilities. Meanwhile, a smart tabletop game has been designed for seniors to boost their ability to care for themselves and to reduce the burden on caregivers. ITRI also developed rapid genetic testing for Spinocerebellar Ataxia, which speeds up the complex DNA testing process and benefits patients and their families. Furthermore, ITRI utilizes bio-asphalt regeneration and thermal cracking oil production technology that turns asphalt, paper slag, and other industrial refuse into renewable resources, saving energy and costs.
