Hsinchu Science Park

Imaging a piece of land sharing less than 0.04% of land in Taiwan but creating global high-tech industry records from times to times, the Hsinchu Science Park (HSP) generates an annual revenue of more than 35 billion USD in average over the past five years and enjoys its global reputation as a brilliant science park. The HSP has cultivated a number of high-tech talent and global flagship IT enterprises over the past four decades, e.g. the largest IC foundry provider TSMC, the second largest mobile phone chipset maker and the third largest IC designer MediaTek, etc., which solidified the position of the Hsinchu Science Park in global IT industries. Besides, the Park also includes a number of renowned foreign companies, e.g. the largest plasma etching equipment maker Lam Research, the second largest IC equipment maker TEL, the third largest optical lens maker HOYA, etc. The Hsinchu Science Park is constantly extending its industry capacity as well as competence in semiconductor, opto-electronics, information, and telecommunications industries. As a venue full of chances, the Hsinchu Science Park has turned out to be the first choice of high-tech industry investment globally.

The past four decades have seen the HSP attain the strategic goal of luring high-tech investments. By putting in place an internationally competitive environment for Taiwan’s high-tech industry, it has helped induce an across-the-board upgrade of domestic industry and foster expansion of national economy. In addition to stimulating R&D on the science and technology front, benefits are enjoyed in many other respects—creating clusters of industrial ventures, cultivating talent, brining prosperity to local communities and enhancing the nation’s overall cultural awareness. Furthermore, the success of the HSP is now being copied at the Central Taiwan Science Park and Southern Taiwan Science Park as well as acting as benchmark science park for global peers.
