Accelerator for Global Science Research Engagement
The Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) Center for Global Affairs and Science Engagement (GASE), launched on November 2018, plays a critical role in facilitating global partnerships across diverse institutions of global scientific research.
Who We Are
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 strive 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. GASE also holds international academic conferences to cultivate talents and strengthen the relationship between Taiwan and the international R&D community.
GASE 3+1 Mission
The three working areas for GASE’s operation will focus on “International Branding and Communication”, “Global Talent Empowerment” and “International Outreach and Coalition Building”. Alongside the three working areas, GASE also plans “Haido series” to focus on the country itself and reinforce Taiwan’s R&D power locally and internationally.
As an inter-sectional platform, GASE carries out its mission based on “5+2 Industrial Innovation Plan” and the “DIGI+ program: Digital Nation and Innovative Economic Development Program” to promote the inter-disciplinary development of the Six Core Strategic Industries - Biotechnology and Health-care, Digital Transformation, Cyber Security, Semiconductor Program, 5G and 6G networks, and improving Internet connections among public and private sectors.
