Silicon Europe delegation visited Taiwan

From September 1st until September 3rd, a Silicon Europe delegation visited Taiwan to take part in the Semicon Taiwan event.

Taiwan has been selected as one of the priority regions outside of Europe as part of the Silicon Europe internationalization strategy. Several activities to explore and further develop the relation between Europe and Taiwan have been defined as part of this strategy.

In addition to attending the Semicon Taiwan event, this mission proved to be the opportunity for the Silicon Europe delegation to meet representatives of the Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST), the Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA), several departments of the Industrial Technology and Research institute (ITRI), the Taiwan Semiconductor Association (TSIA) and the European Chamber of Commerce in Taiwan.

In collaboration with the EBRC (European Business and Regulatory Program), a workshop was organized during the Semicon Taiwan conference on the theme of IoT. Speakers from the different Silicon Europe countries gave presentations in front of a Taiwanese audience.

The Silicon Europe Alliance was explained and promoted. Several useful contacts were established and agreements for follow up have been made. As a result,  matchmaking events for companies will be organized in Taiwan in 2016.
