The Ministry of Science and Technology Taiwan Center for Global Affairs and Science Engagement (MOST GASE) is a mandate office to foster international cooperation and partnership in science & technology. Our main role is to promote Taiwan's engagement with international research community while nurture and empower local researchers.

The operation of MOST GASE is based on the consultation from its inter-institutional, inter-disciplinary, and inter-sectional expert network. As a mandate office of MOST, we continue to leverage its internal and external resources to promote Taiwan’s R&D brand. While initiating industrial collaboration, social innovation, and forming partnerships with higher education and research institutions worldwide, MOST GASE tries to create an ecosystem to integrate Taiwan’s Science and Technology diplomacy efforts.

GASE continues to build a solid R&D brand and elevate Taiwan’s R&D visibility in the world through our monthly newsletter, website, and social media platforms.

Introduction of MOST

The Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST), originally established as the National Science Council (NSC), Executive Yuan on February 1, 1959, is the government agency dedicated to scientific and technological development. Its three main missions are promoting nationwide S&T development, supporting academic research, and developing science parks.

In this age of knowledge economy, S&T innovation has become the key driver of economic growth and national progress. As such, the NSC was reorganized and became MOST on March 3, 2014 with a new organizational structure aiming to strengthen the integration of academic research with industrial development. On one hand, MOST continues the traditions of promoting academia-industry partnership and encouraging innovations; on the other hand, it reinforces the impetus for R&D in industry, fosters S&T creativity, assists startups and supports industrial development.
