Topic. 加速行動產業創新，台灣怎麼做？ St@rt here, Taiwan – A New Model for Accelerating Mobile Innovation Time. 16.30h. Tuesday, 23rd February Place. Lavazza Stage, 4YFN, Fira Montjuïc, Hall M8 Barcelona Speaker. Roger Huang, Head of Strategic Planning, CoCID/ MOEA
Taiwan has many ICT industrial clusters that are in world-leading positions. Businessweek magazine once highlighted Taiwan's vital role in the global technological supply chain with the headline, “The global economy couldn't function without it.”
The speech will unveil the growing entrepreneurial spirit in Taiwan, how the Taiwanese government leverages the resources from international/ domestic ICT industries and governmental initiatives such as “Mobileheroes” and “4G Smart City Project,” incubates innovations and sets up the global community. In addition, the Taiwanese government partnered with the industry to shape the whole island as a live testbed to encourage innovative ideas and to dissolve the commercialization issues.
In the era of “Mobile is Everything,” innovation is the driving force, but only through execution can innovation really come true and be sustainable.
