The Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA) continues to promote state-of-the-art technology and the active deployment of key patents, efforts that have helped Taiwan win international recognition again for its intellectual property strategies. Clarivate today (Apr 20) announced its Top 100 Global Innovators 2021 report, in which five Taiwan institutions were singled out, namely ITRI, Hon Hai Precision Industry, Quanta Computer, and, for the first time, Asus and Kinpo Electronics.

The number of award-winners from Taiwan hit a new high, with Taiwan ranking third in the world, ahead of even Germany and the U.K. Under the leadership of the MOEA, ITRI stood out among 14,000 institutions worldwide, gaining a place on the list that only 0.7% of these institutions achieved. ITRI won honors for the fifth time, making it the most awarded institution in Taiwan and the first among Asian R&D institutions.

Over the past five years, ITRI has licensed its patents to over 915 companies/times. Its almost 5,000 patents have assisted Taiwan industry in protecting their R&D innovations, defending business opportunities, and gaining advantages throughout the world. These patents have enhanced the strengths of Taiwan enterprises, injecting innovation vitality into Taiwan industry.
