Amid the COVID-19 pandemic the Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) continues to promote international exchanges and innovation-oriented development through digital means. To this end, ITRI will host the “Empowering IoT Startups, Taiwan can help” webinar for North American startups and innovative companies on October 15th, California local time. North American startups and innovators interested in IoT-related technology are invited to participate in this international online event, which offers the opportunity for technical exchanges and matchmaking with Taiwan companies such as Tong Hsing Electronic Industries, Realtek Semiconductor, and Kentec. ITRI will take advantage of this opportunity to promote the capacities of its IoT Integrated Service Center (IisC) to the world, thereby promoting IoT- and innovation-related technology cooperation between Taiwan and the international community.
Dr. Jupiter Hu, Deputy General Director of ITRI’s Electronic and Optoelectronic System Research Laboratories and Project Leader of IisC, stated that the IisC project links resources needed in technology development and commercialization for IoT system developers and will offer a one-stop service for hardware design manufacturing. Startups can gain access to required technology, modules, manufacturing processes, commercialization advisory services, and small-scale pilot production knowhow. This will accelerate the commercialization of innovation successes, he said. As integration and linking play a crucial role in transforming ideas into reality, the upcoming webinar will showcase how IiSC integrates resources and helps Taiwan’s innovative technology go international. This event, he added, will enable foreign firms that are interested in IoT development to build a tie with Taiwan and ultimately create a win-win situation.
“Empowering IoT Startups, Taiwan can help” is an international web-based event that welcomes North American IoT-related startups and innovative companies to participate. Applicants can register online and will receive a URL upon approval to join the webinar held from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on October 15 California local time (PDT). Besides introducing the services and resources of IisC, the online activity will also feature representatives from Tong Hsing Electronic Industries, Realtek Semiconductor, and Kentec, who will illustrate the services they provide, along with the new product introduction process and how they assist IoT customers in rapid commercialization.
