Since 2019, the Taiwan Design Research Institute (TDRI) has been spearheading the "T22 Local Industry Revitalization via Design Project," employing design thinking and cross-domain collaboration to foster local innovation. Commencing with the "Ceramics Production Area - Yingge," followed by the "Urban Agricultural Production Area - Beitou," the "Stone Production Area - Hualien," and "Manufacturing in Changhua," TDRI is dedicated to revitalizing local industrial chains. Leveraging professional teams from both domestic and international organizations, the institute collaborates to address challenges within local industries.

This study delves into the T22 strategy, focusing on the role and potential impact of TDRI within the "Design to Revitalize Local Industries Program." Recognizing design as a cross-disciplinary and integrated approach, it is deemed pivotal for the innovation and sustainable development of local industries. By examining the practical application of T22 in the industry, the study hones in on potential mechanisms driving the upliftment of local industries.

The analysis reveals that: (1) Guided by design thinking, TDRI prompts local industries to reevaluate market needs, subsequently creating innovative solutions aligned with consumer expectations. (2) Fostering competitiveness among industries stimulates healthy competition and joint development, promoting diversified growth in the local economy. (3) Assisting industries in adapting to environmental changes enhances their global competitiveness. (4) Promoting innovation and sustainable development in local industries serves as a reference for government administration, facilitating collaboration between the industry and design sector through the program's success stories.
