UNIST signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Ulsan Metropolitan Police Agency to promote active collaboration and mutual assistance towards the protection of industrial technology.
The ceremony took place in the 6F main conference room, located in the Main Administration Building at UNIST on April 4, 2019. During the ceremony, the two organizations promised to prevent industrial technology infringements, which aimed at strengthening the competitiveness of Korean industries and contribute to national security and development of the national economy.
UNIST currently boasts 14 core technologies, which include seawater batteries, rechargeable secondary batteries, as well as solar cells.

This is part of establishing a hotline for industrial technology protection activities.
