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.
