About KIC-Europe

The Korean government has recently been promoting the internationalization of national researchers, venture companies and SMEs to the world market. Especially an on-site continuous dialogue between Korea and the EU should be built up to enhance greater reciprocity in terms of mutual interest.
To achieve this, the KIC-Europe (Korea Innovation Centre-Europe) as the systemic collaborative infrastructure was established in Berlin, on 16th of March.

Our three pillars of activities are:

■ Innovation cooperation for Korean Startups
■ Technology commercialization (technology transfer; licensing; joint ventures)
■ Business acceleration and innovation-based incubation services for Korean SMEs

KIC Europe opens up access opportunities for Korean Startups and SMEs to cooperate with European partners by providing strategic solutions and networking.
