□ Through the schedule of Grenoble local IR and business exchange meetings, we will actively provide opportunities for ▲differentiated research cooperation with local research institutes such as GEM-Labs ▲revitalizing opportunities for excellent student start-ups to enter Europe ▲discovering local partners.
□ Jung Ji-hye, a student of the CodiMe team who participated in the program, said, "This global acceleration program has been a good opportunity to introduce products in the European market, and networking with local investors has also widened the direction of the business."
□ Park Hee-sun, an co-op professor who coached the CodiMe team, said, "Sungkyunkwan University will focus on fostering full-time start-up talent and student start-ups using SW-AI through start-up programs owned by universities such as industry-academic projects and SPARK."
□ Director Lee Eun-seok said, "We have had a lot of difficulties in operating overseas training programs due to COVID-19 over the past two years," and added, "In the future, we will strengthen the international capacity of student start-ups through various and continuous overseas training programs and do our best to foster SW-AI core talents with a global sense."
