DuPont Open Research and Development Technical Centre in Korea to Support Its Electronics Business

DuPont recently announced that as part of its strategy to support the fast-growing electronics industry in Asia, it is opening a new research and development technical center, based at the Korean Institute of Science and Technology (KIST) in Seoul, Korea. The initial focus of technical programs at the new center will be on electronic materials for displays.

"The technology center is starting up as a small, focused operation, but it is highly significant in bringing our world class research and development (R&D) and applications development capability directly to our key customers in Korea," said John Hodgson, DuPont senior vice president.

"By improving our ability to closely collaborate with and respond to our customers, as well as university, government and industries in Korea, we can more rapidly advance materials science. Partnerships and innovation here are critical in enabling next generation applications development, and to an even more successful future for our customers," he said.

Office and laboratory space will be constructed at KIST. DuPont will have immediate access to cleanrooms and analytical and foundry facilities, resulting in a faster start up of operations.

Yoo-seung Kim, president, KIST said, "The establishment of a DuPont R&D Center in Korea will help Korea acquire advanced R&D development techniques."
