Signing of Cooperative Research and Development Agreement with Kobe University Print

On December 22 2008, the Kobe branch of WA Go Online signed a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement with Kobe University. This is particularly significant because it is the first partnership to take place between Kobe University and a foreign owned firm and WA Go Online is also the first Western Australian company to win a contract with a Japanese enterprise. For this reason, Craig Peacock, the Western Australian Government representative for development of business opportunities between Western Australian and Japanese companies also attended. All three parties are particularly excited by the new partnership because it will provide opportunities to consolidate and increase contact between other companies and Research Departments in both countries in the future. The Cooperative Research and Development project will focus on increasing current software capabilities to store massive amounts of data that can be stored and accessed efficiently.
