The Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) announced on Sep. 4 that it would hold a conference in Seoul on Sep. 17 regarding material and component technology transfer to cope with Japan’s export curbs.
Specifically, KAIST is going to present four new technologies at the conference as those that can replace Japanese technologies subject to the export curbs. Those consist of transparent fluorinated polyimide with low thermal expansion (developed by professor Kim Sang-yul at the Department of Chemistry), a non-destructive electromagnetic performance testing system (developed by professor Lee Jung-ryul at the Department of Aerospace Engineering), a nanotechnology-based electrode material for use in advanced secondary batteries (developed by professor Kim Do-kyung at the Department of Materials Science and Engineering), and a high-resolution photoresist (developed by honorary professor Kim Jin-baek at the Department of Chemistry).
In addition, KAIST is going to disclose five patented technologies related to artificial intelligence and materials and components so that those can be transferred to companies and help enhance their competitiveness based on industry-academic cooperation promotion.
More than 200 entrepreneurs and investors are scheduled to be invited to the conference for discussions for the purpose of technology transfer and mutual cooperation. The nine KAIST professors who led the development of the technologies are slated to attend the conference, too. Details of the technologies will be described there, followed by technology transfer consulting sessions.
