During the OECD Workshop (3-5 April 2013) on Smart Specialisation in South-Korea’s “City of Light” Gwangju, Prof. Hugo Thienpont presented B-PHOT’s smart specialization strategy in photonics. Also Jan Larosse (EWI) and Prof. Koenraad Debackere (KUL) gave presentations on how Flanders invests in smart specialization approaches for entrepreneurship and industrial innovation and is able to monitor the results quantitatively.
This encounter between the Gwangju and Flanders regions will lead to a closer collaboration, in particular in the domain of Photonics.
