Participated in briefing on

revision to the Industry-

Academia Cooperation Act


The revision to the Industry-Academia Cooperation Act in March this year paved the way for industry-university cooperation activities between foreign universities in IGC and South Korean companies. IGC participated in a briefing on the revision to the Act, hosted by the Ministry of Education by inviting relevant experts, on June 18. It started with a joint presentation on the details of the revision by relevant authorities, and a presentation on best practices of industryuniversity cooperation at home and abroad, followed by a briefing on how to participate in national R&D projects, as well as a Q&A session. The IGC foresees that industry-university exchanges with domestic companies that will have been ignited by this revision will help stabilize the operation of foreign universities and serve as a stepping stone for their sustained growth.
