The third annual KORANET conference October 19th 2011, in Seoul, Korea. Apply now!

KORANET (Korean scientific cooperation network with the European Research Area) is holding a workshop to provide opportunities for young researchers from the EU and Korea to meet face-to-face for the exchange of ideas, knowledge and information on entrepreneurship skills, and to explore future areas of research and collaboration.

This one and a half day entrepreneurship workshop will actively address the knowledge gap between scientific knowledge and the creation of commercially viable enterprises and will bring young researchers from Europe and Korea together with entrepreneurs, technology transfer and intellectual property experts, and others involved in the process of taking an idea to market.

The workshop will take place in parallel with a nanotechnology conference (Seoul, Oct 19th) aimed at promoting collaboration between the EU and Korea. Both are being organised by KORANET and funded under FP7, and early career researcher delegates coming from Europe would also be welcome to attend the Nanotech conference in Seoul.
