MOEA held a press conference on Oct. 26 to celebrate Taiwan's six MOEA-sponsored 2021 R&D 100 winners.
The R&D 100 Awards, often referred to as "the Oscars of invention," or "the Nobel Prizes of Technology," has announced its 2021 winners. The Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA) has won seven R&D 100 Awards this year.

The prizes were for the Software-defined Augmented Robot Joint (SARJ), the 3D Printing Biomimetic Materials and Structures for Tissue Integration (BioMS-Ti), and the Ubiquitous Water Wand (UWAW), Misinformation join-fighting mechanism enabled by AI forensics technology, the Continuous Type Heat Treatment System Equipment for Micro Parts (CTHT) and RFID Yarn: Overcomer for 5 Major Durability Test. This marks the 14th consecutive year MOEA has received the honor of winning the prestigious achievements.

World-leading research organizations such as MIT Lincoln Laboratory, Los Alamos National Laboratory, and Oak Ridge National Laboratory are among the other award recipients.

Vice Minister Chuan-Neng Lin of the Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA) remarked that innovation is the keystone of building a bulwark from the industries, and that the MOEA has always supported organizations in innovating technologies through its Technology Development Programs (TDPs). He notes that many TDPs have received honors at the R&D 100 Awards, and more than 90% of these technologies have been transferred to industries. This shows that Taiwan's innovative spirit is internationally recognized and also creates substantial industry value.
