Thank you for visiting the Korea-EU Research Centre (KERC) website.
As a base of collaboration within the sphere of Korea-EU Research and Policy, our center will do its best to encourage Korean researchers to participate in EU R&D programs.
The European Union, along with the United States and China, is positioning itself as a global R&D investment leader.
The European Union, which traditionally has excellent technology in the field of basic science, is also leading the way in…
Mission, History and Achievements
Our Organization was established in November 2013, under the name of KIC-Europe as the first Research & Innovation Centre in Brussels to collect and distribute relevant information and to build up networks in research and innovation between Korea and the EU.
Due to the functions restructure in March 2017, our organization changed its name from KIC-Europe to KERC (Korea-EU Research Center) to focus on R&D collaboration and Policy development between Korea and the EU.

NCP (National Contact Point)
NCP (National Contact Point) is a government-driven programme to help Korean researchers’ access to EC’s research funding programme such as previously FP7 and currently Horizon2020, to provide the latest news and information related to R&D and relevant policy in the EU and to play a bridging role in building close networks between European and Korean researchers. NCP are experts in their relevant field.
NCPs provide highly professional services by spreading awareness, giving specialist advice, and providing on-the-ground guidance, with the view to ensuring that the new programme becomes known and readily accessible to all potential applicants. The Republic of Korea, as a third country under Horizon 2020, supports not only Korean researchers, institutions, and enterprises who seek guidance for participation in the EU Horizon projects but also European counterparts interested in R&D collaboration with Korea.
