The successful training of future generations of scientists in universities is the key to the success of ALMA–Taiwan. University efforts thus play a decisive role and are crucial for the success of ALMA–Taiwan. The University Consortium of ALMA–Taiwan (UCAT) conjoining six major universities in Taiwan is hence formed, with the establishment of tuCASA (the UCAT Center for ALMA Science Advancement) through the funding of the National Science Council (NSC), to promote Taiwan’s ALMA Science.

The major mission of tuCASA is therefore to (i) promote and facilitate ALMA science programs in Taiwan, (ii) foster the science training of future generations of ALMA scientists from local universities, and (iii) nurture more competent ALMA users in Taiwan, in order to achieve the following fundamental goals:

  1. to widen the scope of university participation and broaden the user pool from local universities,
  2. to encourage more competitive use of the ALMA,
  3. to better prepare Taiwan’s astronomy community for ALMA science, and
  4. to ensure the best ALMA science from Taiwan.
