As you may know Altitude Tech made another big step in the international technology scene with a UK trade mission to South Korea organised by Innovate Uk after being selected from a list of companies with undeveloped projects. With a tight schedule packed full of interesting visits and networking opportunities we could write all day, however here are some of the highlights of the trip.
The first business day we visited the ‘British embassy’ in Seoul. We learned about the uk government efforts abroad to strengthen business ties with South Korea. Most notably we were introduced to EUREKA is an open platform for international cooperation in innovation.
They aim to raise the productivity and competitiveness of European businesses through technology. Boosting national economies on the international market, and strengthening the basis for sustainable prosperity and employment.
Amongst the other companies selected on the trip we were particularly pleased about our newly formed relationship with The National Physics Lab. NPL has world-leading experts and cutting-edge facilities, techniques and technologies to solve an existing analysis or measurement problems. Further development into the nanosensor field will require a high level of accuracy and calibration. The NPL are great partners to have regarding this.
Notable visits also include a trip to ‘UJU electronics’ facility where we gained valuable insight into the technology manufacturing industry. ‘UJU Electronics’ being Samsungs partner for connectors most notably in their smartphones.
We are proud to say that one of highlights of the trip was our visit to ‘The National Nanofab Center’. NNFC has expanded as the best domestic nanotechnology Infrastructure Institute to provide the World’s leading R&D service and tech commercialization of nanotechnology, through endless solutions to various challenges. During the visit we talked extensively with members of KAIST a public research university located in Daedeok Innopolis, also an NNFC partner. This has resulted in the start of a new joint venture to further develop our sensors with an aim to make them the best in their class.
In conclusion the trip yielded great results with ‘Altitude Tech’ receiving an overwhelming reception to their new technology, with new partnerships on the way look out for us hosting Korean visitors to see our facilities in the near future.
