In line with fast-paced industrial and societal changes, the South Korean government is looking to reinforce collaboration among industries, academia, and research institutions.
The first meeting of a commission dedicated improving coordination between the three sectors was held today.
Cha Sang-mi has the highlights from that session.
During the first meeting of the industry-academia-research collaboration commission on Tuesday, Prime Minister Lee Nak-yon stressed the importance of cooperation for success in the fourth industrial revolution.
"The industry-academia-research collaboration is linking talented individuals with industry. I once met an expert who said 'collaboration is the backbone of South Korea's economy.' I think the three-way collaboration will decide the success or defeat of our economy."
The Prime Minister cited the World Economic Forum's competitiveness index report released last week, in which South Korea's overall ranking rose two notches to 15th out of 140 countries.
"There is a contrast to this report, though. Our infrastructure and ICT adoption is assessed as number one in the world, but university-industry collaboration in R&D is ranked 27th... and creative, critical thinking education stood at 90th..."
Citing the index as the main marker of where South Korea's economy stands now, the PM said the three sectors should complement each other to make a synergy effect.
The commission, presented its five-year plan that focuses on four key visions.
Training and education of people through industry education, technology transfer and industrialization, establishing a strong support system for start-ups, and setting up the infrastructure needed for three-way collaboration.
The Prime Minister expressed hopes for the commission's efforts to contribute to the government's aim of creating 405 billion dollars' worth of economic effects by 2030.
