Cooperation with IFEZA
IGC attended an industry-academia cooperation meeting hosted by Incheon Free Economic Zone Authority(IFEZA) in July 8. Participated by Commissioner of IFEZA, CEO of IGC Foundation, and representatives of IGC universities, the meeting was arranged to accelerate industry-academia cooperation of IGC universities. This followed an approval in the National Assembly in March of the “Partial Revision to the Industrial Education Enhancement and Industry-Academia-Research Cooperation Promotion Act,” highlighting the inclusion of foreign educational institutions within free economic zones in the category of industrial education institutions. Universities in the IGC plan to explore overseas industry-academia cooperation measures using their home campuses, introduce certification programs from home campuses, or seek industry-academia cooperation focusing on their specialized fields. At this meeting, IFEZA announced that it would actively review and take action in areas that could be supported by collecting suggestions and efficiency solutions from IGC related to industry-academia cooperation.
