Our Mission
In order to lead technology R&D innovation, remove any roadblock to Taiwan's technology advancement, and enhance Taiwan’s international competitiveness; the Ministry of Economy Affairs (MOEA) established the Science and Technology Advisors Office in 1979 in accordance with the Science and Technology Development Plan. In 1993, under the stipulation of Article 21 of the Organization Law enacted by the MOEA, this office was formally restructured and became known as the Department of Industrial Technology. This Department is primarily mandated to implement Technology Development Programs to consolidate the research capabilities and soft power from research institutes, industries and academia sectors to develop cutting edge, key and multidisciplinary industrial technologies.
