The Ministry of Science and Technology announced the results of a large number of special projects in the past 10 years last week. The data show that the Ministry of Science and Technology is really striving to pay attention to basic research and is committed to maintaining the stability of the special project subsidies. In the year of 107, there were about 21,000 applicants and about 27,000 applicants. After review, the average funding for each project was more than 1.209 million yuan, an increase of 2.6% over the fiscal year. On average, the passing rate of a large number of special projects in the past three years (105-107) is about 46% to 47%. If the number of hosts with the subsidy plan is calculated, the ratio is 53.2%, and the average amount per person is 1.367 million. The Ministry of Science and Technology said that it is particularly grateful to the convener, reviewer and first-instance members of the enthusiasm for the review work, which, through a fair and impartial Peer Review, assisted the Ministry of Science and Technology in completing the research project review operation. In the eyes of the eye, we will select high-quality projects that are original, influential and worth investing.
In the past three years (106~108 years), the science and technology budget of the Ministry of Science and Technology has an average of about 43.5 billion yuan (including the industrial innovation flagship plan of 9.3 billion yuan in 106 years), and the academic department supporting academic research has an average of about 27.4 billion yuan. The budget for science and technology is about 63%, and the annual funding is slightly higher than that of the previous year. It shows that the overall academic research funding of the Ministry of Science and Technology is stable and growing year by year. The Ministry of Science and Technology has also obtained the consent of the Executive Yuan to specifically list the proportion of basic research funding in the year of 108 to highlight the government's expectations and support for basic research.
As for the 1.5 billion yuan "Smart Innovation Research Center Promotion Plan" proposed in response to the AI development strategy, please increase the number of other projects. The project also focuses on deep research and application of basic research. Therefore, it cooperates with the Ministry of Education to subsidize the University's Characteristic Research Center, and supports the AI Innovation Research Center. It is expected to establish cutting-edge research in a cross-regional, cross-unit, and international way. Develop an innovative ecosystem and platform to nurture and attract world-class researchers to serve in Taiwan.
The Ministry of Science and Technology is well aware of the importance of basic research. In addition to doing its utmost to defend and strive for research funding, it is also actively assisting universities to try to leverage corporate resources to bring enterprise energy into the campus and provide long-term and stable research resources for teaching and research personnel. On the other hand, the Ministry of Science and Technology has also made an extra effort to promote the prospective infrastructure special budget project, and to deepen the breadth and depth of research to maximize the benefits of limited resources.
