Date:6/22/2009

TAIPEI, Taiwan, June 22 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- The Healthcare & Science business of Thomson Reuters today announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Science & Technology Policy Research and Information Center (STPI), a non-profit organization under the National Applied Research Laboratories in Taiwan, on collaborative efforts to provide direction and support for Taiwan's Science & Technology (S&T) development.

STPI aims to conduct S&T policy research in order to provide Taiwan's government with the necessary information to accelerate the growth of research and innovation in Taiwan's S&T industry, and improve Taiwan's S&T competitiveness in the global arena.

STPI and Thomson Reuters will work together to cultivate greater public awareness and understanding of issues and topics concerning Taiwan's S&T development and applied research. This will be achieved by a balanced and objective analysis of international trends in S&T development, and development of consistent methodologies using bibliometrics to monitor Taiwan's S&T output, which will assist STPI in planning its policies and long-term strategy.

Said Dr. Bou-Wen Lin, Director-General, STPI, "Both STPI and Thomson Reuters share the same objective of providing an informative and balanced viewpoint in supporting research on trends in science & technology development, and assisting in the analysis of changes in S&T policy demands. We therefore decided to strengthen our collaborative efforts by signing an MOU. With the professional support and bibliometric expertise provided by Thomson Reuters, we will be able to conduct research much more effectively. Both our organizations also benefit from the synergy which will help us to serve our target audience better and fulfill our goals."

Under the MOU, Thomson Reuters will provide its bibliometric expertise as well as databases and professional support to help the STPI develop appropriate and consistent methodologies for measuring S&T output of research institutions and technology companies in Taiwan that are in keeping with evaluation standards used by the international research community.

Said Mr. Gary Liang, senior regional manager, Thomson Reuters in Asia Pacific, "We are pleased to be the primary partner for STPI in its S&T research policy undertaking, and for the opportunity to collaborate strategically on consistent methodologies for measuring output and provision of important scientific data which can be used by Taiwan's academic and industrial researchers."

Said Mr. Wong Woei Fuh, Asia Pacific commercial director, Thomson Reuters, "Our strategic collaboration with STPI is in line with our support of local research communities in their continuous efforts to promote R&D and research standards. As the leading global provider of intelligent information to research and business communities, we are committed to ensuring the integrity of our information and methodologies in bibliometric analysis and research evaluation."
