The two and half day conference tackled challenging topics such as brain research, biotechnology, environment, and energy production and storage.
Bioengineering is one of the focuses of everyday research work at KIST. One fundamental question is how bacteria react to magnets, and the resulting research findings could play a key role in the future treatment of cancer patients. KIST scientists are also developing and testing alternative methods to animal experimentation. Furthermore, the Korean Institute of Science and Technology views itself as a vital link between Europe and Korea.
As well as a research institute for basic and contract research, KIST Europe also views itself as a vital link between Europe and Korea. The institute undertakes pioneering collaborations with institutes and universities at home and abroad, in addition to creating networks and global partnerships between European and South Korean companies.
