New Approaches in Global Competition

Sang-il Park, the CEO of Park Systems Corporation is a paradigm of a scientist turning into a successful businessman.

Dr. Park claims that Korea’s traditional growth model based on product counterfeit and cost- efficiency no longer works.

Korea has become the home of many world class industries. However, the technical difficulty and product complexity force many Korean industries to re-think their strategies in order to stay competitive on the global market.

He claims in his presentation at Industrial Technologies 2012, that the solution to this dilemma is increased global cooperation. He advocates that global cooperation in basic research, product development, and other applications is vital for sustainable growth.

Markets Beyond Tomorrow

Ulrich Buller, the Senior Vice President of Fraunhofer, is responsible for research planning of the largest research organization in Europe. Fraunhofer employs around 18,000 people and has huge annual research budget of 1.65 billion euros.

The answer on the question "Are high-end approaches in nanotechnology hard to understand for the public?" is suprising: They think about people and their needs for health, energy, communication, mobility and security.

How does Fraunhofer respond to these needs? “We are creative. We shape technology. We design products. We improve methods and techniques. We open up new vistas. In short, we forge the future”.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at
