The main missions of NARLabs are:

  • To establish R&D platforms
  • To support academic research
  • To promote frontier science and technology
  • To foster high-tech talent

Integrated Strategy to Drive Innovation

To foster a more innovative environment, NARLabs serves as a platform to align the upstream and downstream segments along the R&D continuum, which is a crucial aspect of Taiwan's S&T transformation process. In this context, NARLabs aims to enhance its "translation" function and maximize its role in selected projects across various fields with high potential for success. For example, the establishment of platforms for next-generation smart electronics and experimental biological materials aims to elevate the development potential of Taiwan's information and communication technology and bio-technology industries. However, the related connection and integration should proceed with the formulation of complementary measures and implementation of performance management to meet the future needs of developing the country's innovative R&D programs and economic system.

Creating Social Benefits and Values

The R&D platform established by NARLabs carries the mission of creating social benefits and values. In a time when individual technologies can no longer meet future needs of society and industry in a fast-changing economic context, we have to take advantage of the established research capacity as a platform to collaborate with Taiwan's outstanding multidisciplinary research teams in fostering various R&D initiatives that are forward-looking and challenging as well as of social value.
