During the 5 year period (2003-2008, the MoE funded research excellence project on "Cosmology and Particle Astrophysics" (CosPA), and its NSC sequel, a study of the origin of our universe, are the driving force in developing Taida's IoAp. IoAp will start with three outstanding groups:
(1) radio astronomy,
(2) optical and infrared astronomy, and
(3) theoretical astrophysics,
with the research interests of each group overlapping well with those of the CosPA project for at least the first ten years.
Taida's IoAp should reformulate its long-range development plan at least every ten years.
  To internationalize the institute and make it an internationally recognized center, all courses at Taida's IoAp will be conducted in English.
