The event was held at the Korea Chamber of Commerce & Industry, in Seoul, on April 7. The Ministry expects the alliance will play a key role of supporting R&D activities of the three sectors and so help them decrease technological dependence on a single market.
The Support Group consists of 32 public research institutes. The materials, parts and equipment businesses will have easier access to resources owned by state-funded institutes such as research personnel and test equipment.
