Taipei, 4 September – The European Economic and Trade Office (EETO), together with the European Business Regulatory Cooperation (EBRC) hosted a field of distinguished micro- and nanoelectronics experts at its Silicon Europe Taiwan Day Forum. The forum, attended by around 110 representatives of European and Taiwanese industry and research entities, showcased insights on European excellence in the fields of micro- and nanoelectronics, presented European competitive clusters’ know-how, experience and innovations, such as “Silicon Europe”, as well as offered the opportunity for direct B2B matchmaking. SEMI Taiwan, the Taiwan branch of the global industry association serving the manufacturing supply chain of micro- and nanoelectronics industries, supported the event. The forum was part of the EU’s efforts to enhance EU-Taiwan cooperation aimed at paving the way for sustainable engagement and cooperation between Europe and Taiwan.
The experts delivered a clear message that cooperation between industry, academia and administrations has been a key enabler in enhancing successful IT and micro- and nanoelectronics clusters in Europe. Silicon Europe and its partners cover the whole semiconductor value chain and shape a cutting-edge network of micro- and nanoeletronics actors in the heart of Europe. The European ecosystem for innovation is expected to be a good example for the development of Taiwanese high-tech clusters and future EU-Taiwan cooperation.
