It has been also attended by President Mooyoung Jung, Vice President Jae Sung Lee of Research Affairs, Professor In Cheol Bang (Dean of Planning and Research), Professor Jaephil Cho (Dean of Research Affairs), and 10 other key officials at UNIST.
The visit, held at the invitation of UNIST, aimed at exploring the current status and key achievements of UNIST, as well as discussing future directions for further growth. The event consisted of a brief history and current status of UNIST, Q&A session with city council members, and a guided tour of research facilities, including UCRF and the Exhibition Hall of Seawater Battery.
“The rapid growth of UNIST would not have been possible without the wholehearted support of Ulsan city,” says President Mooyoung Jung of UNIST. “Through active R&D and commercialization efforts, UNIST will play a pivotal role in overcoming the economic crisis in Ulsan and securing a new growth engine.”
“The active cooperation of Ulsan city and UNIST will play a key role in fostering new industries, such as 3D printing, renewable energy, and biomedical, especially during this economic downturn” says Chairman Se-young Hwang of Ulsan Metropolitan Council.
