The KOREA EUREKA Day is an event taking place annually and giving Korean and European companies participating in EUREKA projects a rare opportunity to develop innovative project ideas together and foster new R&D collaborations. The KOREA EUREKA DAY 2013 will be held in Istanbul, Turkey, on May 28-30,  2013, and will feature keynote speeches by high-level governmental representatives, a matchmaking session, and informative seminars for potential participants in projects funded by EUREKA. 

ON MAY 28-30, 2013.'

This event is complementary to the EU-financed initiative "EU Gateway to Japan and Korea", which is helping European companies explore their market potential and build their business in Japan and Korea. Offering financial, strategic and logistical support, EU Gateway to Japan and Korea organises up to six business missions per year in high-technology and design sectors.

During their one-week stay in Japan or Korea, participants exhibit their products to a hand-picked Japanese audience and discuss with potential business partners in pre-arranged individual meetings. Briefings as well as studies on the local business culture and market opportunities ensure that the participants are well prepared. A study tour and a networking reception complete the busy schedule. Applications are currently open for business missions both to Japan and Korea. Find out more about this initiative on the EU-Gateway programme's website.
