It is an event where companies in Europe and Asia with the ambition for international expansion present their pitches to investors, providers of loans and subsidies as well as to other business experts specialized in internationalization. 

The P4E session that took place on October 23 2020 was organized in collaboration with the InnoMed Project in Taiwan, and had its focus on the Health & Medtech sector. In this hybrid edition of the event, attendees participated both in an offline location in Taiwan’s Hsinchu Science Park and online in a virtual conference room. Four companies from Taiwan and one company from the Netherlands presented their businesses to a jury composed of governance leaders and industry experts in the Netherlands.
