On Tuesday, August 27th, OBIO hosted a delegation of distinguished scientists from National Cheng Kung University to meet with representatives from the Ontario health science industry including OIRM and CCRM, and the provincial government. Building on a meeting held earlier this summer, meeting participants heard from NCKU researchers about Taiwan’s science parks and areas of research specialization.
As Taiwan looks to develop its health science industry within the context of its world-class ICT cluster and advanced manufacturing capacity, OBIO facilitated conversations to find new opportunities to collaborate and identify potential new partnerships. One of the pillars of the work that OBIO does focuses on access to markets.
Hosting a second positive, collaborative discussion between stakeholders from Ontario’s health science industry, officials from the Ontario government and representatives from Taiwan’s National Cheng Kung University, is another step toward deepening relationships as OBIO continues to work to build Ontario’s health science industry.
