Origin and Purpose of the Activity
With the aim to develop Taiwan's space industry infrastructure, the Executive Yuan of Taiwan proposed the "Space Infrastructure and Industry Development Advance Program" since 2022. Through inter-ministerial collaboration among the National Science Council, the Ministry of Economic Affairs, the Ministry of Digital Affairs, and the Ministry of Education, this project focuses on three main domains: satellite technology development, industry promotion, and talent cultivation. With the expectation of the program, we hope to strengthen Taiwan's space technology and stimulate the development of the domestic satellite industry.
To cultivate young talents and upgrade technology in the space field, the Industrial Development Bureau of the Ministry of Economic Affairs held the first "RunSpace Innovation Challenge" in 2022. The competition covers various themes based on the development of the space industry. We would like to expand new ideas from participants and explore more practical collaborations between entities and participants.
