WHAT WE DO

We hold the authority to transfer and commercialize technology, which is the work of YEDA, a technology holding company of the world-renowned Weizmann Institute of Science, to Korean companies. We establish a cooperative platform for technology commercialization between the two countries to discover technologies that are highly likely to be commercialized, identify the business areas of the target companies, and match them with the technology of Wiezmann. We also support technology valuation, technology marketing, and subsequent R&D links through expert groups to facilitate the technology a process.
