Sep 06, 2017 Medical & Health Care Comments Off on Scholar: Taiwan’s universities face shortage of funding and talent
Taiwan's universities are facing a shortage of finance and talent. That was the word Wednesday from Dr. Lee Fang-jen, head of the College of Molecular Medicine at the National Taiwan University.
Lee was commenting on National Taiwan University's poor showing in The Times' recent ranking of the world's top universities. Despite ranking higher than all the 25 other ranked universities from Taiwan, National Taiwan University came in at 198th place. This was the university's lowest-ever performance in The Times' rankings.
Lee said that a university's competitiveness depends largely on how much support it gets from the government, and on how much talent it can retain in its research departments. Lee said Taiwan's universities cannot remain competitive if they continue to suffer from a shortage in both areas.
