Taipei, Taiwan – The National Taiwan University (NTU) served as host for the 32nd Executive Board Meeting on 21-22 November 2019. The institution was formally accepted as an Associate Member of the University Consortium (UC) early this year. NTU is one of the top comprehensive and research-oriented universities in Taiwan. It provides a diverse, competitive, and international curriculum while insisting on a strong academic training for cutting-edge research and development. It is also one of the world's preeminent research and education institutes that provides leadership and academic excellence in a wide array of disciplines across science, arts, and the humanities. NTU hosts four international research centers, six national research centers, and fifty college level research centers.

During the meeting, NTU, led by Dean Huu-Sheng Lur, organized a tour of their Gallery of University History which recorded the development of NTU starting from its founding years. In addition, they also brought the attendees to their Experimental Farm and presented a Smart Agriculture Drone Demo conducted by their engineering students. Organic products from the farm were also served to the Executive Board members.
