The EU – Taiwan Matchmaking Event will bring together cluster organisations and SMEs from the European Union (EU), non-EU COSME countries, and Taiwan. It will provide participants with an excellent chance to promote Cluster to Cluster (C2C), Cluster to Business (C2B), and Business to Business (B2B) collaborations. The event will be held on-site at the Taipei Nangang Exhibition Centre, as a side event of the global ICT and IoT show and exhibition Computex 2023.

The overall objective of the event is to promote information exchange and networking opportunities for European cluster organisations and their members with counterparts from Taiwan, particularly in the fields of ICT, Semiconductors and Digital industries, Robotics, AI, Advanced Manufacturing, Circular Economy, Renewable Energy, Sustainability, Smart city, Connectivity and 6G.

The objectives for the participants include:

  • Strengthening EU-Taiwan cluster cooperation for the benefit of their members, including through a seminar, a cluster matchmaking event, and visits;
  • Identifying potential areas of common interest for cooperation and synergies, in terms of the sectoral, value chain, and market focus of their SMEs and other companies;
  • Through clusters, improving EU-Taiwan industry and academia-industry collaboration in research, development, and innovation. For its members, the clusters will identify possible areas of RDI collaboration (academia, research organisations, industries...).

This call for expressions of interest is being launched to identify a European delegation made up of representatives from cluster organisations from various industry sectors who are willing and committed to participating in an EU-Taiwan Matchmaking Event in the context of the global ICT and IoТ show and exhibition Computex 2023.
