AMRC Korea hosted a Global Network Workshop at the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) in Sheffield with the purpose of building a global network for overseas expansion and R&D collaboration between South Korea and the UK.
The event was held in Sheffield, UK, to establish global collaboration system with AMRC members and UK companies and to discover global R&D partners.
The event, which began with a visit to the AMRC Center on the 2nd, included an introduction to the latest manufacturing technology and tours. The event included seminars on the current R&D status and business support at each centre, such as Composite Center, DPTC Centre, Machining Center, and Factory 2050, visits to manufacturing sites through lab tours by center, and technical consulting by centres.
Five Korean companies - Hanjoo Metal, Jungrok, Next Generation Materials, N'think, Ajin Industrial - visited the UK and had meetings with AMRC industrial members as Korean companies are keen to discuss the potential for business and technology collaboration.
Technical exchanges and business meetings with UK companies were held on the topics of lightweight parts manufacturing, carbon composite parts manufacturing, technology development collaboration between South Korea and UK companies, and global R&D collaboration consortia.
