Strategic cooperation with Taiwan
To benefit from each other’s knowledge in joint research areas; that is the goal of the Memorandum of Understanding signed by ECN and the Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI), the largest high-tech R&D institute of Taiwan. The Memorandum of Understanding expresses the mutual goodwill of both organisations and acts as a framework for collaboration, now and in the future.
Both institutes will strengthen each other in the field of green energy, with particular focus on wind energy, carbon capture and bio-energy. Both the Netherlands and Taiwan have the ambition to develop their green energy industry, and both ECN and ITRI aim to support the industry and their government in this endeavour. There are overlaps in the R&D activities of both organisations. It is therefore in the interest of both institutes to exchange information and employees. Clients and other collaboration partners can also benefit from this strategic alliance, as ITRI is one of the world’s leading research institutes.
