Nanotech Convergence T+2B Center Opens in Daejeon

According to Yonhap News,

(DAEJEON=Yonhap News) The city of Daejeon will be building a one-stop support system for local nanotech firms at all stages of technological commercialization.

Holding an opening ceremony at the National NanoFab Center (NNFC) on April 17, Daejeon also signed MoUs with participating organizations to successfully carry out the city's T2B (technology to business) initiative.

Located on the 7th floor of the NNFC, the new T+2B Center has a permanent exhibition hall for products and technologies developed by local nanotech firms, a consultation center providing technological advice, and a comprehensive T2B support office.

Currently, products and technologies of 24 local nanotech firms selected through a public contest are on display in the permanent exhibition hall, along with nano for automobiles.

The items on display will be replaced regularly, and remain open to the public, as well as Korean and foreign business persons and buyers.

The city's T2B initiative will last until 2020, costing a total KRW 8 billion from national and city funding. The Nano Technology Research Association (NTRA) is supervising the entire initiative, and has stationed two employees at the T2B Center to be in charge of all operations.

As of 2014, Daejeon is home to 269 nanotech firms and around 5000 employees, ranking third after Gyeonggi Province and Seoul.
