Six Locally-Based National Universities Set to Create an “Industrial-Academic Cooperation Belt”

The 6 universities: SeoulTech, Gunsan National University, Kumoh National Institute of Technology, Pukyong National University, Changwon National University, and Hanbat National University

On January 4th, the Seoul National University of Science and Technology ("SeoulTech") signed a memorandum of understanding for the creation of a “locally-based National University-Industrial Academic Cooperation Belt” with five other national universities, including Gunsan National University, the Kumoh National Institute of Technology, Pukyong National University, Changwon National University, and Hanbat National University.

The Seoul National University of Science and Technology and its five national partners agreed and discussed the establishment of a model to help regional universities actively evolve with the demands of universities’ changing roles in the face of social and economic environmental changes, and to lead regional and national development through the signing of the MOU. The creation of the university-industry cooperation belt is expected to contribute to the development of the six universities as well as to that of the local industry.
