Seminar and Matchmaking event between Korea delegation and EU Clusters
The European Cluster Collaboration Platform organises a Cluster Seminar and Matchmaking Event within the context of the European Utility Week on 6-8 November 2018 with a delegation from Korea to the EU, as well as opportunities for Intra-European matchmaking. The aim is to allow cluster organisations for information exchange and networking opportunities with counterparts from Korea and in parallel to present a platform for exchange among European cluster organisations.
The European Cluster Delegation has been selected on the basis of their interest in engaging in cluster collaboration with Korea in industry sectors such as:
- Smart city
- Transport (electric mobility)
- Enabling technologies used to develop innovations in clean energy products, services and solutions, such as lightweighting, composites, additive manufacturing, nanotechnology, ICT
The Korean Delegation visit to the EU and matchmaking event seeks to support cluster cooperation for strategic business partnerships.
The EU and South Korea have developed a stable economic relationship over time since the signature of the EU-South Korea free trade agreement in 2009 and ratified in 2015. Bilateral cooperation on cluster development has been formalised thanks to the signature of the Administrative Arrangement signed on Cluster Cooperation by the Korean Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy and the Korea Industrial Complex Corporation of the Republic of Korea and the European Commission in May 2018.
This event offers an excellent opportunity not only to explore business cooperation opportunities with Korea, but also to strengthen intra-European cluster cooperation in the domains of the European Utility Week such as energy, smart cities and enabling technologies.
This event is by invitation only but, if you would like to meet the participants, please come and join us at 9:30 on 8th November at the session on 'International cooperation opportunities for European businesses. Special guest: Korea' at the EU Projects Zone.
