Eindhoven - Taiwan design program

In 2016, the Taiwanese capital of Taipei will be the World Design Capital (WDC). In the run up to 2016, there will be an intensive cooperation between Eindhoven and Taipei. Eindhoven is the city of technology, design and knowledge, and in 2020 will be among the top 10 innovative regions in the world. Therefore, Eindhoven is seeking cooperation with other regions in the world, including Taiwan. 

There will be exchanges between designers, companies, universities, the manufacturing industry and research institutions. There will also be joint ventures regarding research between Eindhoven and Taiwan, opportunities to make connections to ensure that interaction and co-creation take place on all levels. That is what makes this program so unique; it creates a new network!
