Global Business Innovation Visit to South Korea - Advanced Materials

Posted on: 07/09/2018

Attend international events, meet South Korean companies and visit research centres of excellence.

Innovate UK’s Global Business Innovation Programme, delivered by the Enterprise Europe Network, is organising a second technology visit to South Korea for businesses developing advanced materials for mobility. Key technology areas are composites, light weighting, carbon fibre and high performance materials.

Successful applicants will have the opportunity to attend international events, meet South Korean companies and visit research centres of excellence with the aim of developing strong international partnerships for future collaboration/commercialisation.

South Korea is a country which has experienced spectacular growth and is the 11th largest global economy. With a strong composites industry there has been significant funding into the automotive and aerospace industries and the development of new carbon fibre technologies. Recent UK and South Korean collaboration in this sector, for instance the launch of the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre in Jeonju City, make this a market which offers significant opportunity for UK companies that are developing advanced material technologies.


Closing date for full application: Friday 28th September 2018, 12 noon

Briefing event: Wednesday 10th October 2018

Visit dates: Saturday 11th November – Saturday 17th November 2018 (inclusive)
