R&I Cooperation

KOREA-EU R&I Cooperation

The Cooperation between EU and Korea is important for both sides as there is strong potential to work for mutual benefit in a wide range of areas.

On 14 February 2022 at the 7th EU-ROK Joint S&T Cooperation committee meeting, EU and Korea addressed ICT, Health/BIO, Climate Change and Emerging Future Technology, Research Hub, and Human capital development as five priority areas for cooperation.

The cooperation between EU and Korea has performed more than 130 joint research projects since 2007. Until now, Korea has involved in Horizon 2020 as 82 projects. And now the talk on participation of Korea to Horizon Europe as an associated country is developing.

The EC’s Joint Research Centre also cooperates with Korean Institutions mainly in the fields of health, measurement science, energy and transport, construction standards, nuclear safety and security.
