- I am honored and deeply thankful to professors
and researchers who are working on research
and industry-academia cooperation."
We live in the end of the Iron Age,
where problems such as climate change,
environmental pollution, fossil energy depletion, polarization,
and aging society are complicatedly overlapped.
At the same time, we are nervous about
the advent of the so-called
"Fourth Industrial Revolution" that predicts a new era.
Our colleagues are responsible for carefully analyzing the causes of these serious problems in human society and finding answers with their cool collective intelligence. As Korea's representative national university, Kyungpook National University has a proud history that has achieved the highest level of research results at home and abroad, thanks to its outstanding research capabilities
We must make a lot of efforts to achieve 'excellence' leading society and a higher 'publicness' for the region and the nation. Integrity, clarity, sincerity and humility throughout the course of the research process must be our rules.
Kyungpook National University, Industry & Academy Collaboration Foundation promises to do the best that can be done to create the best environment for professors, postdoctoral students, graduate students and researchers to engage in research. I will also devote myself to making the university a forum for more open discussions and developmental convergence. I wish you great success in your research and always be healthy.
