2020 LITEON Award: Working with suppliers in support of advanced technology innovation and application


The "LITEON Award" was founded in 2001 as part of the company's corporate social responsibility to nurture technological talent in the Chinese-speaking world and encourage young innovators and industrial designers to make market value and entrepreneurship feasibility two essential factors in their assessments and to develop technologies or techniques in the areas of light, electricity, energy conservation and smart technology. For 20 years, the award has attracted Chinese-speaking industrial designers and tech innovators from more than 20 countries to participate in capturing the industry's latest visions and trends.


20th LITEON Award teamed up with customers and suppliers to encourage innovative thinking in Taiwanese students

For 20 years, the LITEON Award has been an advocate of the importance of innovative design in technology products in the Chinese speaking community and the investment in the area. The award gives young creative teams in Taiwan a platform for exchanging ideas with world-class corporate, academic, and technical experts and social resources worldwide. The 20th LITEON Award welcomed the support of LITEON customer, Mouser Electronics, and LITEON suppliers, Infineon and Merck, as co-sponsors. The award attracted 1,747 participants despite the pandemic. While the finalists focused on smart living, there were a number of entries that explored smart healthcare and disease control applications and brought technology innovation into new fields. The Southern Taiwan University of Science and Technology (STUST) became first to win gold in both the Technical Innovation category and the Design Innovation category. Its entry in the Technical Innovation category was the AI-assisted vocal assistant system for laryngectomee. The gold winner in the Design Innovation category was "HanDo", a modular prosthetic limb for unilateral child amputees. The design offered affordability and flexibility at the same time.

LITEON Award to be reborn as LITEON Geekathon

The LITEON Award encouraged innovative design in technology for 20 years, and received more than 2,000 participants a year for 10 consecutive years. More than 30,000 people competed in the event over the years. The award helped new generations of innovative designers find matching industry demands and connect with the world. Starting in 2021, the LITEON Award will become known instead as the LITEON Geekathon. The focus will be shifted to technology, and the contest topics will be closely aligned with LITEON's direction for future development. The purpose of the event will be to facilitate industry-academia collaboration and help entries find their place in the industry.
