Taiwan is facing the immense challenge of making a successful transition to clean energy. Taiwan’s energy transition policy emphasizes an increase in renewable energy, which is also the goal of the EU’s 2020 Energy Strategy. The EU and Taiwan share a mutual interest in developing offshore wind energy in Taiwan. The Bureau of Standards, Metrology & Inspection (BSMI), MOEA, the Bureau of Foreign Trade (BOFT), MOEA, and European Economic and Trade Office (EETO) under the framework of European Business and Regulatory Cooperation Programme (EBRC) will co-host the “2018 EU-Taiwan Offshore Wind Power Certification Seminar” on 14 March.
The European Economic and Trade Office - the European Union's office in Taiwan – offers in-service traineeships for young university students and graduate students from the member states of the European Union, pre-accession states or Taiwan. Tasks would typically be equivalent to that given to junior executive-grade staff e.g. compiling documents, researching and analysing information and documentation, contributing to high quality reports, organizing visitor programmes and other events, replying to queries, participating in team meetings, filing, linguistic support, etc.
