On May 26, the Pohang Accelerator Laboratory (PAL) and Daegu Technopark held the signing ceremony of Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) at PAL. In this contract, there are specific details of a cooperative work system created to concurrently develop the light source science and medium-sized enterprises. The main topic was on support in the field of essential industrial technology to establish a system that supports both industries. Through mutual support on central industrial technology, industrialization will be accelerated and the latest equipment will be available to develop methods of verifying test certifications. Both parties will create a system in which they share skilled human resources, technical information, and scholarly researches.
In order to fulfill the needs of the industrial sector of the Creative Economy, PAL has established the Korea National Industrial Convergence Center. Furthermore, PAL has supported small and medium enterprises in developing new products by making infrastructure and analyzing technology involved in the use of the accelerator. By including the Pohang Light Source, the big science equipment business, which was initiated by the government, can compete with foreign companies with highly advanced technology. Complying with the direction taken by the government, numerous strategies to stimulate the accelerator equipment industry will be utilized. These strategies aim to stimulate a creative economy by creating new jobs in the small and medium enterprises and entering the foreign markets.
On the other hand, Daegu Technopark Nano Practical Application Center is providing support and research in the nano-based parts industry, touch industry, and green energy industry. Through various innovative and diverse support programs (CS policy, Dr. NPAC, i-NPAC etc.), Daegu Technopark Nano Practical Application Center was appointed as “a center for research and trustworthy examination of touch-based parts” in 2012.
