With the main mission of supporting the government in S&T policy planning, the Policy Research Division aims to respond to relevant issues swiftly with S&T policies based on scientific evidence. In particular, the Division plans and discusses the implementation measures of policies, analyzes the social economic influence of S&T projects and policies, and conducts research on the planning and development of science parks and industrial clusters. To improve the quality of S&T policy research, the Division has been developing its core competencies. It has also provided comprehensive support for the Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) to formulate national S&T policies, plan on policy measures, and measure the performance of S&T projects. The Division has also participated in important S&T policy-making events such as the National Science and Technology Conference, National Science and Technology Development Plan, Science and Technology Development Strategic Blueprint (formerly known as White Paper on Science and Technology), and Science and Technology Counselor Meeting.
