Multinational R&D center in Taiwan

"The Program of Multinational Innovative R&D center in Taiwan" is an important element in the International Innovation and R&D Base Plan, which forms part of the National Development Plan. The aim is to get multinational corporations collaborating with local Taiwanese firms so that Taiwan can establish itself as a regional R&D center within the Asia Pacific region. This in turn will help to support multinational production activities, thereby enhancing the role which Taiwan plays in global R&D, giving the R&D activity of Taiwanese industry greater depth and encouraging Taiwanese companies to focus on cutting-edge research.

Implementation of the plan began in 2002. Until Oct, 2011, several leading international corporations including Intel, HP, Dell, Sony, Microsoft, IBM and Ericsson have established 51 R&D centers in Taiwan. Among these companies, many found that the industry environment and infrastructure here are much better than what they had expected, and some even expanded the scale of their R&D centers. This proves Taiwan to be an ideal location for multinational corporations to establish their R&D bases for innovative R&D activities. The introduction of key technology by these R&D centers will help Taiwan to become a valued partner to the world's multinational corporations in the area of technology, and will contribute to the further development of Taiwanese industry.
