Korea Institute of Science & Technology
KIST is the premier multi-disciplinary research institute in Korea. Our goal is to research, develop, and transition to the creative, original technologies that are necessary to advance our nation’s science and technology base. Specifically, we are focused on fusion technologies that will power Korea’s economic growth, especially in the areas of energy, environment, health, security, and materials. KIST will continue to proactively foster partnerships among industry, universities, and research institutes. It is only through such cooperation that we can improve the well-being of our citizens. To enhance the level of excellence of our research, we will expand our global cooperative network to include world-renowned scientists and institutions. In addition, KIST will promote an open environment of creativity where our researchers can realize their fullest potential. We are hard at work to make KIST an eminent world research institute that Korea can be proud of. KIST will be known as a place where dreams are realized. I ask for your continued support and encouragement. Thank you.

Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute
Nuclear energy is an energy source for the future that can supply an abundance of clean energy to humankind. KAERI was established in 1959 to lay the foundation for achieving national nuclear energy self-reliance. Over the past 50 years, KAERI has become the driving force behind Korea´s national economic growth. KAERI has laid stepping stones to promote strong economic development by using nuclear energy as a major energy source strengthening Korea´s industrial competitiveness through the transfer of advanced science and technology. The world is faced with a serious crisis due to climate change and energy scarcity. This crisis has escalated due to the indiscriminate use of energy. As a result, the global environment is being destroyed at a very rapid rate. Nuclear energy is an attractive alternative to avoid such an energy crisis. Nuclear energy can be a sustainable energy source for humankind for thousands of years. Unlike fossil fuels, nuclear energy does not produce any greenhouse gases which are being blamed for global warming. Nuclear energy is an energy source for the future which can supply an abundance of clean energy to humankind. KAERI is committed to developing advanced nuclear technology to supply environmentally clean energy. We are making efforts to develop nuclear technology for hydrogen production, which will place us in the advanced era of the hydrogen economy. We are also g on reactor and nuclear fuel research not only to promoti the welfare of future generations but also to improve the existing nuclear power technology. We are developing radiation fusion technology, which we believe will be the basis for high value-added industries. With these efforts, KAERI will be reborn as a leading research institute and contribute to Korea´s national development in the 21st century. We will do our utmost to become a global leader.
Korea Astronomy & Space Science Institute
Korea Astronomy and Space Science Institute (KASI) is the national astronomy research institute of Korea established in 1974. KASI opened the history of modern Korean astronomy via the establishment of the Sobaeksan Optical Astronomy Observatory, expanded the observational wavelength range to radio via the establishment of the Taeduk Radio Astronomy Observatory, and made a stepping stone to jump into the future of astronomy via the establishment of the Bohyunsan Optical Astronomy Observatory. KASI encompasses wide variety of research areas such as optical, radio, theoretical and observational astronomy and is expanding its reach through to astronomical researches in space. Doing both pure scientific researches on the Universe and developing space-related techniques, we are leading the space science era of the 21st century. Utilizing the brilliant astronomical history of Korea which dates back several thousand years, as well as modern astronomical facilities and instruments, and new scientific products, KASI will activate Korea astronomical research activities and become one of the top astronomy research institutes in the world. We hope to have good relationships and engage in cooperative work with other institutes and nations.
Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute
Since its foundation in 1976, as the country's largest government-funded research institute specializing in information and communications technology, ETRI has played a central role in making Korea the world's most advanced information and communication powerhouse.

Korea Research Institute of Chemical Technology
KRICT is the only government-supported research institution in chemical technology in Korea. Since its establishment in 1976, KRICT has contributed to the growth of the domestic chemical industry and is now endeavoring to develop key chemical technologies to secure a sustainable future for the planet and its people. To achieve the recent goal of management set at the end of 2008, we will strategically concentrate on four major research areas: Green Technology, Advanced Chemical Materials, Innovative Drug Candidates, and Chemistry based Fusion Technology. By achieving ECO management, we hope to make Korea one of the top five nations in the chemical industry. KRICT will continue to strive to achieve our vision of becoming a world class chemical institution, by contributing towards the increasing global competitiveness of the Korean chemical industry and realizing a green society. I wish everyone who loves chemistry the best of success with KRICT.
