Arexpo: Kyoto Research Park top management visit MIND
Milan, 23 September 2022. Kyoto Research Park (KRP) representatives came to visit MIND today to meet Arexpo top management and partners of the Milanese innovation district within the scope of the cooperation agreement the two innovation districts signed on 8 September 2021. This Japanese technology park is one of the most important technology parks in Asia with nearly 500 member companies and institutions.
The aim of the meeting is to develop a common talent and start-up exchange strategy that will encourage mutually beneficial investments, thus creating an international network that will fuel the growth of both technology parks.
“Arexpo and MIND,” states Arexpo Managing Director Igor De Biasio, “consider the development of an international network of relations with cutting-edge innovation companies to be a priority. That is why receiving a visit from top management of the highly eminent Kyoto Research Park proves that we’re on the right path – a path that has already earned us numerous international cooperation agreements with countries such as China, the U.S., Canada, United Arab Emirates, Switzerland, and others. This will certainly lead to more international partnerships in the future. These global relations once again confirm that Arexpo and MIND are bridges to the world, and a gateway to Europe and Italy”.
“Sono onorato di avere visitato MIND per la prima volta dopo la firma del protocollo di intesa, di aver conosciuto l’ecosistema dell’innovazione di Milano, e di avere avuto un incontro così stimolante. Sono certo -spiega Shojiro Oka, managing director del Kyoto Research Park- che MIND e KRP, entrambi situati in città di importanza storica, potranno collaborare per generare e implementare iniziative di innovazione importanti per il futuro e di portata globale”.
”I am honored to have visited MIND for the first time after concluding the partnership agreement, and to have been able to learn about Milan’s innovation ecosystem and have a fruitful discussion with you.
I believe that we, MIND and KRP, which are both located in historic cities, are able to work together to generate and pursue global innovations for future” – stated Shojiro Oka, Managing Director of Kyoto Research Park.
