SHIFT and Connected Places Catapult are pleased to invite you to launch our UK Testbed Initiative with the Korean International Trade Association (KITA).
Come join us to network and hear from eight innovative Korean startups addressing challenges related to urban mobility and Net Zero.

The UK Testbed initiative builds Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park’s international reputation as London’s living testbed for better urban futures and reinforces Milton Keynes’ position as a leading, digital city which promotes innovation. The project also introduces Korean start-ups to the British market by providing access to technical and market expertise and support to conduct technology testing in the United Kingdom. Innovation challenge statements were designed based on locally identified need, and South Korean companies were invited to respond. The most exciting, impactful products were selected, and the Catapult and SHIFT will facilitate access to test environments in Milton Keynes and Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
This event is an opportunity to meet the Korean delegation, hear from start-ups who are at the forefront of Korean innovation and explore how their solutions are relevant to and can be applied to address local challenges.
