[ Winter Institute /
Research Communication Activities for Korean Graduate Students in Science and Technology ]
(Commissioned by the Japan-Korea Industrial Technology Cooperation Foundation)

The Winter Institute is an exchange program that enables Korean graduate students (enrolled on Master’s of PhD degree programs) to spend five weeks over the winter period working at independent or national research institutes in Japan. This project has been running since 1993, and also provides students with the opportunity to study some Japanese language as well as having cultural experiences.

Through providing the opportunity to get research experience in Japan, this project aims to build human networks in order to promote exchange between Japan and Korea in the area of industrial technologies. In doing so, it is hoped these activities will facilitate and strengthen joint research ventures between Japan and Korea and raise the industrial technological power of both countries.

This project is sponsored by the Japan-Korea Industrial Technology Cooperation Foundation with support from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. JISTEC has been commissioned by this Foundation to carry out the planning and management of this project, with the cooperation of the National Research Foundation of Korea.

(This project has completed in 2014FY)
