As IFEZ authority signed a move-in support agreement with Stanford University in December, 2019, the Stanford Research Center at IGC(SCIGC) is about to open at the end of 2020. The Research Center is planning to conduct research in various areas including smart city technology and urban environment. The SCIGC aims to accelerate the development of breakthrough technologies, innovations, and ideas that can have real and positive effects on South Korea and the world, in addition to serving as an open collaboration platform. Envisioning a “South Korea + Silicon Valley” hub that supports world-class cooperative studies, scholarships, learning, technology transfers, innovation and participation, the SCIGC is expected to realize closer connections by integrating South Korea with Silicon Valley and Stanford University through interactions across the entire Pacific

region.
