Having written another page in history with excellent performance in revenue, employment, and manufacturer occupancy in 2014, CTSP looks to the future and still has to complete the following tasks.
(1)Promoting Taichung Science Park Expansion Development Plan: To build up basic technology in Taiwan's IC industry and help businesses leave their roots in Taiwan in order to secure Taiwan's leading position in the IC industry, urban planning and environment impact assessments have been completed for the expansion plan, and the space can be expected to be made available to manufacturers on schedule in 2015 Q2
(2)Science parks represent one of the driving forces behind industry upgrading and transformation and economic growth in a country. Faced with challenges of a constantly changing high tech industry, the park is always trying to inject creative momentum. The CTSP Bureau will work with the Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) to promote innovation and entrepreneurship, academia-industry cooperative research, and training programs. Efforts will continue to be devoted to improving quality of the parks, supporting startups, helping manufacturers invest in R&D and innovation, facilitating academia-industry cooperative programs, and ensure effective product realization of R&D results so that the parks shift from efficiency-oriented to being innovation- oriented and facilitate transformation and upgrade of domestic industries.
(3)Efforts will be made to accelerate the second stage of environmental impact assessments for Phase 3 and Phase 4 of CTSP development and the corresponding review processes in order to make the space available to manufacturers.
