The necessity for research and development on materials, parts and equipment which had been heavily reliant on imports has surfaced once again after Japan's export regulations. A prominent science and technology university and the academia circle are lending a helping hand, together with the government and industries. One representative university would be KAIST, the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, a university with Korea's top-notch scholars in the science field. On this week's Korea 4.0, we visit KAIST, which is one of the first universities to form a group called KAMP, which stands for KAIST Advisors on Materials and Parts. A total of 100 former and presiding professors make up KAMP, so we will learn more about KAMP and its activities. We will also take a look at the independent technology and what the academic circle is working on to take action against Japan's export regulations.
