R&D Organization TDP

The R&D Organization TDP is jointly carried out by 21 research institutes, including the Industrial Technology Research Institute, the Institute for Information Industry, the Development Center for Biotechnology, and the Metal Industries Research & Development Center. Its aim is to develop key, cutting-edge industrial technologies and to improve research environments and basic infrastructures. The R&D Organization TDP emphasizes the research and development of technologies and the integration of the five major fields, promotes an innovative management style, and outsources its technology applications to help breed creativity and create stability in our domestic industries.


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.

  • 。CNC controller technology
  • 。Innovative and value-adding technology for traditional industries
  • 。Advanced manufacturing technology


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.

  • 。Innovative and smart medical technology
  • 。New drugs with a high-profit margin
  • 。Biotechnology-derived protein drugs
  • 。Foods and bio-resourcesy
  • 。Innovative industrial material technologies
  • 。Specialty chemical technologies for the consumer goods industry
  • 。Textile technology


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.
