Our Mission
In 1979, in order to encourage technological innovations, achieve breakthroughs in industrial technologies, and increase Taiwan’s competitiveness, the Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA) established the Science and Technology Advisors’ Office in accordance with the Science and Technology Development Plan. Later, in 1993, under the stipulations of Article 21 of the Organization Law enacted by the MOEA, the Office was restructured to become today’s Department of Industrial Technology (DoIT). DoIT is dedicated to the implementation of Technology Development Programs (TDPs) by integrating the expertise of think tanks, industries, and Taiwan’s academic sectors to develop key innovative, multidisciplinary industrial technologies. It is also our aim to facilitate communications among the private, academic, and research sectors, and with the concerted efforts of the three sectors, to improve industrial technologies, apply new technologies in different fields, and accelerate the industrial upgrading and value creation.
