The Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI) will join forces to develop technology for ICT platforms and quantum computers. On August 27, Kim Heung-nam, president of ETRI signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Andrew Hamilton, vice chancellor and the de facto head of Oxford University, in a conference room at ETRI, and discussed their plans for collaborative research projects.

The two representatives decided to push forward with collaborative research projects in new materials, cutting-edge parts, sensors, wireless communications, and optical communications. As for the ICT and quantum computer areas, they are planning to cultivate collaborative research items and exchange technical information through manpower interchanges and seminars. On top of that, they agreed to create a partner network for collaborative research and to proceed with the commercialization of technology as well.

The president of ETRI remarked, “We will try to find a win-win measure through the development of state-of-the-art technology in partnership with Oxford University, a leader in ICT research.”

The vice chancellor said, “We will make an effort to develop a new technology in the ICT field through exchange and cooperation with ETRI, so that we can contribute to the world.”
