See The Future With Assisted Living Technology

Welcome Join Us in Taipei 2020!

In 2020, it is particularly exciting as GASE enters its 2nd year to bring together over 20 excellent universities from all over Taiwan to facilitate partnerships across the world and various research disciplinary. As AGING Society becomes a challenge and vital issue for both Taiwan and Japan, GASE organizes “Taiwan-Japan Matchmaking Conference on Aging Research Cooperation: See The Future with Assisted Living Technology” to invite Taiwanese participants to join on-site to discuss future cooperation opportunities with Japanese researchers online.

About GASE

The Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) Center for Global Affairs and Science Engagement (GASE), launched on November 2018, plays a critical role in facilitating global partnerships with diverse scientific research institutions. GASE is a joint initiative by MOST and National Taiwan University (NTU). Designed as a university- centered structure with 15 university members on the Steering Committee, the goal of GASE is twofold: first, to elevate Taiwan’s engagement with international research community; second, to nurture and empower local researchers.
This conference is part of GASE’s FORMOSA+ program, a series of event programs (Global Expert / Youth Networking / Staff Training) that invite experts to share their international experiences and exchange their professional knowledge for young scholars, academia administration staffs and researchers. GASE FORMOSA+ series aims to foster global human resources to have active international interactions and strengthen the ability to expand international collaboration.

On behalf of GASE, I’m pleased to invite all the eminent participants from Taiwan and Japan to this great conference. As GASE’s main task is to enhance Taiwan and global scientific research cooperation, this is what we hope to accomplish with GASE Matching Conference 2020. We hope this event harvests a spirit of global unity and cooperation, and that within it flourishes a great matching and conversation regarding the future of scientific innovation in both countries. To conclude, we wish all the participants great success in their future endeavors and hope you could create new relationships, in the meanwhile, enjoy the event as well.
