German-Korean innovation platform InDeKo founded in Dresden

The innovative cooperation between Germany and Korea reaches a new level:”InDeKo Innovation Centre Germany Korea – The Korean-German Innovation Hub” is the name of a new association founded on 7 December 2017 in the Korean Honorary Consulate in Dresden. The aim of the association is to bring together Korean and German scientists and companies in all innovation-related fields and to create a lively platform for this purpose.

At the inaugural meeting, the renowned physicist Professor Dr. Peter Fulde, who spent half of his time in Korea over the past seven years and has built up the “Institute for Basic Science”, was elected President of the new company. The former German Ambassador to Seoul, Dr. Hans-Ulrich Seidt, Berlin, the Managing Director of Solarwatt GmbH Dresden, Detlef Neuhaus, and the Honorary Consul of the Republic of Korea, Notary Public Dr. Christoph Hollenders, Dresden, are his deputies on the Executive Board.

The fact that the most promising German-Korean platform in times of industry 4.0 and increasing digitization was founded in Dresden is due to the concentration of non-university research institutes, the international reputation of the University of Excellence TU Dresden as well as numerous personalities from Saxony who are committed to deepening German-Korean cooperation in innovation-related areas.
