What is Korea-EU Research Centre about?



“A Bridgehead to enhance Korea-EU R&D Cooperation”

The official partnership between South Korea and the EU in the R&I areas was established in 2007 by implementing the Korea-EU Scientific & Technological Cooperation Agreement.

In this context, Korea-EU Research Centre(KERC) was established in 2013 to promote the R&I cooperation between Korea and the EU, under the influence of Korean Ministry of Science and Technology and the National Research Foundation of Korea(NRF).

Our mission is to promote the R&I cooperation between Korea and Europe. To achieve this mission, we are committed to serve as a platform for both Korean and EU researchers in order to facilitate their collaborations through setting up network and community, and providing R&I information of both countries such as policy trend, research trend and results, human resources, research institutes, funding programmes, and project calls.

It is highly welcomed for researchers and institutes of both sides to utilize KERC as a hub for international cooperation. We invite you “A Bridgehead to enhance Korea-EU R&D Cooperation.”

I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all the researchers who are showing their interest in KERC and its activities.
