TRO hosts Convention to boost bilateral cooperation in science and technology

 

On 8 December 2018, the TRO hosted the first ever “Bai San” Convention to further strengthen Taiwan-UK cooperation in science and technology. Approximately 160 UK-based Taiwanese from academia, industry and government attended the Convention to participate in interdisciplinary meetings and various activities. In his opening remarks, Representative Lin encouraged participants to seize opportunities to expand their networks in order to promote Taiwan-UK interdisciplinary collaborations in academia and industry.

 

The first half of the Convention featured 13 short TED-style talks covering a range of fields including natural sciences, biotechnology, design and entrepreneurship. The Bai San Convention is one of the main events by the TRO-initiated ‘Taiwan-UK Network Association’ (TUNA), a 500 member organisation comprised of scholars, innovators, technology specialists, students and businessmen.
