As open innovation sets a global trend, the Taiwan Research-based Biopharmaceutical Manufacturers Association (TRPMA) and the Digital Treasury Corporation (DTCO) (hereafter “we”, “us” or “our”) jointly develop the Bio IPSeeds Trusted Platform (hereafter the “platform”), which uses the features of the blockchain technology, such as IP notarization and traceable transaction information, to help facilitate the communication between the academia and the industry. The platform allows researchers to register their research results, and the industry to quickly search for and locate suitable development projects. The platform aims to expedite the development and marketing processes of new drugs and new medical devices by matching the collaboration requirements between the academia and the industry, such as through joint development, technology transfer or fundraising.
