Global credentials

Surrey Research Park has moved to boost its global credentials by signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with South Korea’s Taedok Science Town and the World Technopolis Association.

 

Surrey  Research Park is home to industries including information communication, software, biomedicine and biotechnology. Based in Guildford, it has helped business such as IDBS, Lionhead Studios and Detica, as well as providing services to smaller companies through the Surrey Technology Centre.

 

The MOU was proposed by the mayor of Daejon in South Korea and is designed to strengthen technological ties between the two science parks, UNESCO, the UN and the World Technopolis Association – a global body set up to promote technology transfer between member cities.

 

Surrey University claimed the agreement will also enhance the reputation of the South East of the UK as a leading region for innovation and development.
