Professor John Leonard meets with members of a delegation from the Epoch Foundation, on its eighth biennial visit to MIT and CSAIL on October 4, 2006. The Epoch Foundation was established in 1990 by twenty leading companies from a range of industries in Taiwan. The aim was to integrate the resources of the private sector with the world's best academic institutions. Epoch has since tried to promote growth by focusing research on Taiwan's industrial and economic issues, regional economic cooperation, and the region's economic outlook.
