The National Science Council (NSC) has been a key player in achieving Taiwan’s goal to build a ‘Technologically Advanced Nation’, and it was through the NSC that CERN established contact with a number of scientific institutions in Taiwan. In 2001, the Academia Sinica, the National Central University and the National Taiwan University, funded by NSC, joined the ATLAS and CMS collaborations, making substantial contributions in the field of advanced electronics. The engagement to create a WLCG Tier-1 centre has been maintained and it is operational since 2005. In addition, Taiwan operates one of the Tier-2 centres for the WLCG project.
