A note from the Daejon Global Innovation Forum
On Tuesday I made a presentation as part of the 2015 UNESCO- World Technopolis Association (WTA) International Training Workshop. The topic for the session in which I participated was "Network for Active Academia-Industry-Government Collaboration in STP and Technopolis." Daejon, like Incheon Songdo where I now live and work is part of the nationwide network of technoparks. The location of these parks is shown on the accompanying map (click for a full-size version). Further details are available at the website of the Korea Technopark Association. I've been learning a lot about the history and growth of techno-parks in Korea and around the world, and how this movement relates to the more recent emphasis on venture startup campuses and ecosystem.
