The NTCRI promotes the bamboo arts through encouraging the passing on and improvement of techniques, the collection of related documents, and the research and development of new products. The organization trains up bamboo artists, and works with international designers, while selecting artists to attend international exhibitions, which has the happy double result of exposing Taiwan's bamboo artists to techniques and pieces from around the world, and of attracting the attention of foreign designers, artists, and creators to the nation's finest bamboo artists, that they might engage in cooperative projects.
The NTCRI implements training and research programs, including research on materials and their improvement, and publishes teaching manuals, while providing technical assistance and arranging domestic and foreign crafts exhibitions. The organization also provides assistance with product development.
