Advantech Foundation is devoted to industry/academic cooperation. We setup the TiC100 program for excellent research institutes and college students, and planned the EDC (Early Design Campaign) and EACC (Enterprise-Academy Cross-over Collaboration) for illustrious industrial design college students and MBA students, in order to implement Advantech's altruistic spirit and spread our positive concepts more widely into schools.

EDC is held by Advantech, and it brings in user-oriented innovative design process methods. Advantech will propose an innovative product concept design that satisfies the market demand every half year, and invite well-known Taiwanese industrial design school students to participate in the design development.

EDC emphasizes taking the user as the starting point, and aims at building a good link between industrial designers and engineers, infusing innovative design into industry, and schools, making Taiwan designed products better known on the international stage.
