Technology commercialization is the one of the innovation initiatives KAIST is strongly driving. KAIST showcased six core technologies developed by KAIST research teams during the 2018 KAIST Core Tech Transfer Day on September 10 at Coex in Seoul. More than 300 investors, buyers, and venture capitalists showed up for the fair. This is the second fair organized as one of the strategic innovation initiatives that KAIST is promoting.    

Developers of key technologies selected in the fields of bio, nano, AI, and semiconductors presented their distinct technological prowess to the attendees. The technologies are highly relevant for the new industrial environment trends in the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

The 15-member committee comprised of patent attorneys, venture capitalists, and commercialization specialists selected the six core technologies based on their innovativeness, applicability, and marketability. The Office of University-Industry Cooperation (OUIC) plans to offer buyers various services for developing business models, business strategy analysis, and marketing at home and abroad. The six core technologies featured at the fair include:
- Novel technology of a nano patterning platform by Professor Hee Tae Chung from the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering
- Anticancer therapeutic candidate materials strengthening immune function by Professor Byung Sok Choi from the Department of Chemistry
- Biofuel mass production using micro-organisms by Distinguished Professor Sang-Yup Lee from the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering
- Compact single-shot hyperspectral camera technology by Min Hyuk Kim from the School of Computing
- AI-powered high speed ultra-high definition upscaling technology by Professor Munchurl Kim from the School of Electrical Engineering
- A radiation strong MOSFET device by Hee Chul Lee from the School of Electrical Engineering

   
President Sung-Chul Shin stressed in his opening remarks that universities should make contributions to economic development through innovation. “Global leading universities are taking an instrumental role in creating new jobs and economic growth with their own technologies. KAIST, as the leading university in Korea, is accelerating the commercialization of technology produced internally to create a meaningful impact for the economy as well as the job market beyond Korea,” he said.

   
“We are aiming for the global market, not just in Korea. I want KAIST to be a global value creator that can contribute to the betterment of the world through our innovations,” he added.
