Aiming to help startups and innovation companies grasp related business opportunities, the DoIT’s IisC project is responsible for establishing an IoT smart services platform to integrate and develop technology, modules, manufacturing processes, commercialization consulting and trial production, all of which are key steps in the development of IoT. This «one-stop hardware design and manufacturing services» platform is being provided to meet the needs of small- and medium-sized manufacturers or makers of innovative products. Dr. Jupiter Hu, Deputy General Director of ITRI’s Electronic and Optoelectronic System Research Laboratories, and the head of the IisC collaboration project, remarked that the pandemic has spawned the demand for digital transformation, while also promoting the vibrant development and unlimited business opportunities of IoT-related applications in retailing, home and lifestyle, smart manufacturing, and telemedicine. This IisC international interactive event will bring Taiwan’s innovative technology to the world, while also enabling foreign firms interested in innovative IoT to come to Taiwan, thereby linking advantages of each side and creating a win-win situation through cooperation.

While the international webinar arranges for North American and Taiwan IoT-related startups and innovation companies to interact online, the project is being expanded to Europe this year, with a webinar slated for May 11 Berlin time for likeminded companies. Besides introducing IisC services and resources, representatives from Phison and Getac will also explain the services they can offer, the process in having a new product reach the market, and how to provide IoT customers with rapid commercialization.
