Biotechnology is a knowledge-intensive industry that requires coordination of human resources, technology, domestic and international law, and capital. When these components are effectively managed and integrated, long-term research endeavors may produce products with high economic value. To stimulate and promote valuable and effective biotechnology research, Academia Sinica, in concordance with governmental development policy, has constructed the National Biotechnology Research Park (NBRP) in Nangang, Taipei; opened in October 2018.
The National Biotechnology Research Park (NBRP) provides the first ecosystem platform for biomedical research on a national level. With the joint participation of industry, government, universities and national research labs, the NBRP aims to accelerate completion timelines for new drug development, with the ultimate goal of enhancing human health and welfare. As a coherent engine driving R&D for new pharmaceuticals, the NBRP has built a bio-corridor for academic research and industrial development that maximizes efficiency across value chains. The NBRP focuses on the first part of journey toward biotechnological success by creating strong links between basic research and pre-clinical animal studies. Pre-clinical research results are then supplied to surrounding parks for further product development and mass production.View more
