Technology Innovation Focus

By promoting TDPs, DoIT fulfills its mission to pursue multifaceted innovation through R&D, promote industrial upgrading & transformation, enhance the nation’s competitiveness and create national economic well-being. Guided by the road map of national technology development policy and the prevailing industry trends, DoIT’s TDPs are focused on smart technology, green energy technology, smart manufacturing, and well-being and services innovation to achieve its overall goals of helping the industry optimize its added-value and its position in the global market through structural transformation.

Smart Technology

The program has dug deeper into the smart technology, constructed a wireless broadband communications environment dedicated to next-generation communications technologies, and created a brand-new digital convergence industry. Many startups have sprung up in turn, helping Taiwan become an exporter of new-generation communications devices and innovative applied services. This has further motivated industries to upgrade to knowledge-intensive business service providers, which claims a higher added value.

Green Energy Technology

The program pursues technologies to develop clean energies, such as solar lighting and smart electric cars, deploys related talents, and distributes funds. We also actively explore key energy-saving materials, technologies, equipment, product applications, and verification technologies. Through the abovementioned efforts, we will be able to improve Taiwan’s competitiveness and achieve the goal of becoming a major supplier of green energy technologies and systems.

Smart Manufacturing Technology

The program creates an industry chain in which the up-stream material suppliers serve as the engine to power down-stream manufacturing. Automation and services are also emphasized in this chain. By developing common, basic industrial technologies, integrating innovative services, and advancing intelligent systems, equipment, and development strategies for manufacturing key components, we aim to make manufacturing and service the two main driving forces of the industry.

Well-being Innovation

The program aims to help upgrade Taiwan’s medical, biotechnology, and consumer goods industry; and develop new drugs, medical equipment, health foods, and textiles that cater to public health and quality of life needs. We also use ICT technologies to develop innovative smart medical devices and axillaries, and at the same time advance biotechnology to develop better drugs and improve food safety inspection, in order to increase the competitiveness of Taiwan’s medical devices and pharmaceutical products.

Service Innovation

The program has created Living Labs as environments for information service providers to develop better system solutions and consulting capabilities, and to further attract providers to invest in its R&D efforts. By copying and promoting successful business service operation models and appealing to those who have potential to join international platforms to establish new service enterprises, Taiwan has been able to become a role model for the Asia-Pacific innovative technology applications sector and futuristic technology services value chain.
