Project Description

Collaborative research relationships have been created between Australian and Korea through the AUS-KOR research colloquium funded by the Australia-Korea Foundation in 2017. This research relationship has resulted in developing people-to-people networks, and resulting in various joint research and educational outcomes – International Research Journal Publications, Short-term Student Exchange, and Joint Research Proposal. In order to strengthen the current Australia-Korea research collaboration and ensure its continuation through institutional cross-disciplinary joint research and education for Smart and Sustainable Future, the Australia-Korea Foundation grant will be used to establish MoUs for more practical and fruitful people-to-people exchange and joint research initiatives between institutions in both countries. The collaborative Australia-Korea relationship will be further promoted by organising two public research symposiums, one each in Adelaide and Seoul. Through the symposiums, the public can experience cutting-edge smart technologies, and mid career researcher including professors as well as early career researchers including HDR students will have the opportunity to build up an international research network.
