Innovation Policies and Technology Parks in China and Taiwan: An Evolutionary Approach

Tonatiuh Najera Ruiz


Innovation and technology development are closely
related to economic development. Governments in many
countries have launched a series of policies to encourage
innovation and the development of technology as a mean to
generate economic development. These initiatives require
coordination and participation of a range of stakeholders,
including the government, research centers, universities and
companies. This paper shows the development of innovation
policies in China and Taiwan as well as the different adaptations
that have been made to their national innovation systems (NIS) in
the last 50 years, as well as inferred opportunities for
technological cooperation beyond borders. Even though both
countries started from very different conditions, they both have
some common elements.
