    Prof. Duk Joon KIM and his research team was Selected for 2018 Future Materials Discovery Project

    The research team led by Prof. Duk joon KIM (School of Chemical Enigneering/Polymer Science and Engineering) was selected for 2018 new research group for National Research Foundation’s Future Materials Discovery Project. The research theme is “Hyper Ion Transfer Channel Based Superionic Conductive Flexible Material.” The research team with SKKU professors Pil Jin YOO, Gi-Ra LEE and Jp Seok PARK has organized a research group with Seoul National University, Korea University, Yonsei University, and POSTECH and will receive a total of KRW10.2 billion in research grants over the next six years. LG Chemical, L&F Co., Ltd. and Kolon Industries will participate as partners. The goal of this project is to develop a superionic conductive solid electrolyte which is safe, flexible, and highly efficient in order to overcome the limitations of existing problems of the low energy density of conventional liquid electrolyte, reactivity with liquid electrolyte and lithium metal electrode, and solubility of polysulfide in liquid electrolyte. In order to realize this, a new concept of hyper ion channel based polymer material will be designed and synthesized and applied to various devices.

    Prof. Jae Pil HUR and His Team Has Been Selected as a Customized Research Development Pilot Project for Public Security

    Prof. Jae Pil HUR (Dept. of Software) and his research team has been selected for the ‘Customized Research Development Pilot Project for Public Security’ by Ministry of Science and ICT and National Police Agency. The research team composed of Prof. Jae Pil HUR, Prof. Yoo Sung KIM, Prof. Jong Wook LEE and Prof. Seung Woo HONG (Dept. of Forensic Science) will carry out the project with the subject ‘development of intelligent control system based on image crowd sourcind.’ In the next two years and nine months, the team will receive research fund of 1,375 million won. This research project aims to contribute to the rapid resolution of crime cases by increasing the productivity of image evidence acquisition and analysis process in the investigation site based on ICT technology. Furthermore, it is expected to make an important contribution to the field of legal security forensics and digital forensics.

    Prof. Jong Hwan SEO and his team Wins a Contract from the US Air Force Office of Scientific Research

    Prof. Jong Hwan SEO (School of Mechanical Engineering) and his research team won a research project from the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR), an affiliated organization of the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL). This is the first time for SKKU to obtain a research project at US Air Force Office of Scientific Research and the team will receive a research fund, $100,000 US dollar every year. The project is about development of eco-friendly artificial cork material by using natural materials. Cork as largely known as a cap of wine bottle, is a porous material that is mostly collected from quercus suber living in the shores of the Mediterranean. It has special physical properties: (1) lightweight (2) reverts to its original shape even after compression, and (3) absorbs a large amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Cork’s unique and superior material properties are attributed to the cork’s special porous structure as well its chemical structure. In particular, cork’s excellent permeability and elasticity are exhibited due to the hydrophobic lipid called Suberin. Based on this fact, Prof. Jong Hwan SEO and his team proposed a research to synthesize eco-friendly materials with uniform physical properties by selectively extracting and recombining cork’s Suberin. “This study will be a cornerstone for the sustainable development of environmentally friendly materials that can be used in various engineering fields beyond the limits of application of existing natural materials,” said Prof. SEO.

  • SKKU Has Been Selected for the ‘University Innovation Support Pilot Project’

    SKKU Has Been Selected for the ‘University Innovation Support Pilot Project’

    The Ministry of Education and the Korean Council for University Education announced 11 universities selected for 2018 University Innovation Support Pilot Project’s among 73 applicants. SKKU selected as one of the universities participating in the project along with other 10 universities: Kookmin University, Chung Ang University, Kangwon University, Daegu Haany University, Daejeon University, Jeonju University, Kyungsung University, and Donga University. ‘University Innovation Support Project’ is the project that was merged from the five businesses (ACE+, CK, PRIME, CORE, and WE-UP). For this project, each university will select their own projects and application methods and the government will give financial support. This year will be the pilot year and the project will start in earnest from the next year. The final decision for ‘University Innovation Support Project’ will be made depending on the performance evaluation which will be held at the end of the year. Each selected university will receive 1.8 million dollar.

    The President and Professors at Sophia University in Bulgaria Visit SKKU

    Dr. Anastas Gerdjikov, the president of Sofia University, Bulgaria, and professors at the Dept. of Korean Literature visited SKKU on Aug 17th (Fri) and had a meeting with the president CHUNG and our faculty members (VP of Academic Affairs, Dean of Academy of East Asian Studies, etc.) for exchange cooperation. Both universities have continued to work on academic and student exchange activities since 2013. This visit was organized in order to strengthen their relationship due to Bulgaria government’s strong educational policy towards East Asian countries. At this meeting, the two universities discussed possible cooperation such as scholar exchange activities in the field of Korean Studies, East Asian Studies, Basic Chemistry, and ICT, student exchange activities including Post-Docs, Seed Project for the Academy of Korean Studies’s seed project for overseas Korean Studies, and faculty/student exchange activities through Erasmus and Horizon 2020 business. Sophia University is the oldest higher education institution in Bulgaria. It has been consistently ranked as the top university in Bulgaria according to national and international rankings.
