Smart Cities Opportunities in South Korea
Innovate UK’s Global Expert Missions, led by Innovate UK’s Knowledge Transfer Network, play an important role in building strategic partnerships, providing deep insight into the opportunities for UK innovation and shaping future programmes.
The Smart Cities Expert Mission travelled to South Korea in June 2019. The findings and insights gathered during the delegation’s time are shared in the Global Expert Mission Report.
