EU-Taiwan Industrial Dialogue

EU-Taiwan Event on Industry of the Future

This business oriented event is a joint initiative of the European Commission, the Bureau of Foreign Trade (BOFT), the Department of Industrial Technology (DOIT) and the Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) of Taiwan facilitated by the Enterprise Europe Network (EEN), the European Cluster Collaboration Platform, the Industial Development Bureau (IDB), the Environmental Protection Administration (EPA) and Silicon Europe Worldwide at the occasion of the third industrial dialogue between the EU and Taiwan.

The aim of the Event is to foster cooperation between European and Taiwanese companies, clusters and business associations by exploring possible common areas of interest for cooperation and complementarities, in terms of sectoral, value chain, and market focus.

The event will feature seminars on smart manufacturing, circular economy, 5G and clusters cooperation. In addition, a specific matchmaking event will take place on 26 June for clusters and business associations while a Business to business (B2B) and Business to clusters (B2C) matchmaking will take place on 27 June.

The event builds on the success of the EU Innovation Week organised in Taipei back to back to the Industrial dialogue in June 2016 during the COMPUTEX fair in Taipei. At that occasion B2B, C2C and B2C matchmaking meetings were organised by our EEN partner TAITRA for 250 EU and Taiwanese clusters and companies.

Registration to any of the activities of the EU-Taiwan event on Industry of the future is free of charge.
