KIST launches “Industry-Research Institutes Cooperation Office for K-Club Materials/Components/Equipment”
KIST held its Innovative Enterprise Cooperation Center’s “2020 K-Club Technology Exchange” at EL Tower in Yangjae-dong on the 19th of January.
At the event, KIST announced its plan to establish an “Industry-Research Institute Cooperation Office for K-Club Materials/Components/Equipment” in K-Club, a subsidiary of KIST. KIST also stated that it would implement convergent R&D support projects that are reflective of the R&D tasks and characteristics at conglomerate research institutes in response to the government’s support policies for materials, components, and equipment.
Using its established office, KIST’s Innovative Enterprise Cooperation Center will derive R&D tasks centered on technological demands, and will actively support additional requests for performance. To that end, KIST will fully open up its materials, components, and equipment platforms and share its manufacturing & analysis equipment with the Cooperation Office in order to establish an optimal system of promotion that can achieve results in a short period of time.
Moreover, KIST plans to differentiate its R&D support methods from other government-owned research institutes by assembling a special Task Force (TF) of researchers who will work with 100 key materials and components. With the Cooperation Office and TF being established, the Ministry of SMEs and Startups (Minister Park Young-Sun) will also offer cooperation in the form of various materials, components, and equipment support policies. Also, the Ministry of Science and ICT (Minister Choi Kiyoung) will cooperate by creating “N-Team”, while the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy (Minister Sung Yunmo) will cooperate by launching the “Convergent Innovation Support Team.”
KIST will additionally seek to identify members of innovative companies outside of K-Club who have connections to KIST. In particular, it will also aim to provide both personnel and physical infrastructure by setting up the “Linking Lab” at the Institute, with the purpose of assisting businesses that have a large impact on performance.
During the event, the head of KIST’s Innovative Enterprise Cooperation Center, Dr. Je Hae June, announced that the Center would “establish the Cooperation Office, and further organize a joint cooperative group consisting of research institutes’ affiliated companies.” He also mentioned that he would “put all his efforts into deriving outcomes related to the government’s policies for materials, components, and equipment through the Cooperation Office and cooperating organizations in a short time.”
