Dutch Photonics Mission to Taiwan

date: November 12 2017 - November 17 2017     |     comments

Are you a Dutch registered company active in photonics and are you interested in cooperation with Taiwan? Join the Netherlands Photonics Innovation Mission, from November 12 to November 17, 2017.

The goal of the mission is to identify opportunities for Integrated Photonics in the field of research & development and to strengthen existing relationships. Fiber Optic Sensing aims to explore applications.

Public-private cooperation in Taiwan

Taiwan is one of the markets where the Dutch photonics sector wants to position itself in public-private relations, both in terms of technological cooperation and business development.

The Dutch photonics sector is one of the leading companies in the Integrated Photonics and Fiber Optic Sensing areas worldwide. PhotonDelta combines the knowledge and experience in the field of Integrated Photonics. Within Fiber Optic Sensing, the Netherlands has built up a knowledge base, including in the field of structural health monitoring. This position can be very interesting for application in specific sectors in Taiwan.


Two Parallel Programs

The program consists of company visits, networking activities, workshops and matchmaking for 2 parallel missions: a mission focused on Integrated Photonics and Technology Cooperation, and a mission focused on Fiber Sensing and Applications. There are also some joint activities.
