MIRICO Heads East on a Trade Mission

MIRICO’s VP of Product Management, Dr. Graham Leggett, recently returned from an exciting trip to China and Taiwan, promoting our game-changing Laser Dispersion Spectroscopy technology to potential customers from a wide range of industries and end users interested in implementing cutting-edge gas analysis capability.

For the initial four days of the trip, MIRICO headed to Shanghai, where we joined other UK-based developers of novel sensing technology for a trade mission funded by the Foreign Commonwealth Office (FCO) Global Partnership Fund (GPF) and organised by Innovation China UK, Queen Mary University of London in partnership with the Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN).  Leveraging China’s ever-increasing demand and investment in technology innovation, the mission’s purpose was to help UK innovators in Internet of Things (IoT) and Sensing to partner with China in research, innovation and technology development.  The companies present firstly promoted their technologies at the Great Britain & Northern Ireland booth at Sensor China Expo, and associated workshop.  From here we met with local companies and technology incubators for networking events in Shanghai and Changzhou.

Undeterred by the impending typhoon Talim, and thanks to a hastily rearranged flight, next stop was SEMICON Taiwan in Taipei.  Here, MIRICO joined forces with our local partner, Weltall Technology Corporation in exhibiting to the more than thirty thousand attendees present at the Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center.  In addition to contacts with key customers at the booth, attendance at the High Tech Facilities Forum yielded extensive insights into upcoming requirements and developments as the semiconductor fabrication industry continues to push the limits of circuit feature density and device performance.  MIRICO is excited to be making its own contribution to this dynamic and essential effort.
