Successful applicants will be supported through a structured programme of support and information and benefit from a 6 day country visit to meet South Korean officials and companies in Ulsan and Busan and attend ADEX Seoul 2019 with the aim of creating opportunities for technology collaboration.

Delegates will receive bespoke 1-2-1 support to help them exploit the opportunity before during and after the visit.
