Call for Participation: Digital Cyber Security Innovation Mission Taiwan

Is your organisation active in the field of cybersecurity and do you want to explore R&D cooperation or business opportunities in Taiwan? Sign up now for the digital cybersecurity innovation mission, organised by the Netherlands Enterprise Agency and the Netherlands Office Taipei, in collaboration with InnovationQuarter and the Hague Security Delta.

The digital mission focuses on helping Dutch companies to enter the Taiwan market through a combination of actual market demand from Taiwan (and Japan), technical matchmaking and online webinars. It builds upon earlier activities related to cybersecurity in Taiwan like the connections build between ITRI and HSD partners under Global Epic. Since 2018 an extensive network with the government, academic/ knowledge institutes and the private sector in Taiwan has been established. Various events (including an Innovation Mission in 2019), projects and collaborations already took place. We welcome both previous and new participants to join!

Why Taiwan?

With the significant and increasing number of cyber-attacks on the public and private sector, the Taiwanese government is pro-actively establishing a striving cybersecurity ecosystem through both regulatory reform and economic incentives. The goal goes beyond building up national cyber resilience, but also aim to stimulate the development of the local cybersecurity sector through innovative product development, particularly through partnership with Taiwan’s world renown ICT hardware manufacturers. For more information on the Taiwanese cybersecurity market and opportunities for the Dutch companies, a new report will be made available soon and shared accordingly.
