Since 2016, EU and Taiwan have invested 18 million Euros in four joint projects, involving more than 30 teams from industry and academia across ten countries. These collaborations focused on Smart Manufacturing and Disaster Prevention and Relief with Drones; furthermore, the joint efforts had resulted in the development of new technologies and products in both Taiwan and the EU. The bilateral cooperation has been complementary and mutually beneficial.The Special Session aims to encourage EU-Taiwan collaboration on 6G projects in SNS. Through sharing knowledge, promoting innovation and identifying mutual interests, it seeks to strengthen the strategic partnership and building consortia to developing cutting-edge technologies. The special session on Taiwan at EuCNC will exchange insights from EU-Taiwan joint projects in 5G and explore new collaborations in 6G. It will provide an overview of Taiwan’s 6G research and feature leading Taiwanese companies such as Chunghwa Telecom, Auden, Compal, and Liteon. Cutting-edge technologies like Joint Communications and Sensing (JCAS), AI-Native technologies, Reconfigurable Intelligent Surfaces (RIS), and Video Coding will also be discussed.
