At the end of October 2017 a delegation of the Korea Business Class 300 Enterprise Association (KWCA) visited the AGIT in Aachen.
The companies are primarily interested in topics such as the digitization of industry and industry 4.0. In addition to the digitalHUB Aachen, visits to the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology IPT and e.GO Mobile AG were also on the agenda.
To improve a cooperation with Korea on a lasting basis a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed between KWCA and AGIT.
In September 2018 a delegation of representatives from the Aachen City Region, RWTH Aachen University, AGIT MBH and companies from the Aachen region, headed by City Region Councillor Helmut Etschenberg, again visited Ansan and Seoul to further strengthen the existing economic and scientific partnership. Invited by the Mayor of Ansan, the agenda included company-visits to the Gyeonggi Technopark, CTR Central in Anyang and the Digital Center Seoul. On the concluding two days of their trip, the delegation from the city region of Aachen visited the Korea Institute of Industrial Technology (KITECH) and the Pangyo Techno Valley.
Almost one month after the delegation's visit to Korea, the representatives from the Aachen City Region welcomed the delegation around Ansan's Mayor Wha-sub Yoon to the Aachen City Region House on October 17th 2018.
