KNU Selected for the Leaders in INdustry-university Cooperation Phase 3 (LINC3.0) Development Project

KNU to receive up to KRW 33 billion in support over 6 years

Kyungpook National University has been selected for the “Leaders in INdustry-university Cooperation Phase 3 Development Project” (hereafter LINC3.0), hosted by the Ministry of Education. KNU was selected for the Leading Technological Innovation category, which offers the largest support budget, and will receive up to 33 billion won in support over six years.

Starting from this year and lasting for six years, LINC3.0 will be promoted at 134 universities with the aim of building an industry-university-research collaborative innovation ecosystem. The participating
universities include three types of general universities (technology innovation leading, demand-tailored growth, and cooperation-base building), of which there are 76, and two types of professional colleges (demand-tailored growth and cooperation-base building), of which there are 59, with a combined budget of 407 billion won supported for this year.

Through being selected for this project, Kyungpook National University will build the “KNU CND (Connect & Development) Industry-University Cooperation Platform,” a virtuous cycle system that completes the cycle of manpower training, technological innovation, and sharing and collaboration in a single process. In addition, five industry collaboration centers (ICCs) that reflect regional key growth projects and specialized fields of the university will be established and managed: Global Biomaterials, ICT Convergence Smart Mobility, Advanced Textile Convergence Materials, Intelligent Robot Convergence Technology, and Intelligent Optical Convergence. In addition, a technological innovation-sharing university platform will be built with Pusan National University, Chonnam National University, and Hanyang University so that proven technologies of the respective universities can be distributed and shared widely across regional zones, thereby establishing a foundation for sharing technological innovation networks centered on universities in metropolitan areas. In addition, there are plans to promote other initiatives such as the establishment of the four zones of the University Network Capstone Design Joint Research Laboratory, the establishment of the Global Technology Commercialization Center, and the strengthening of related capabilities.

Wonhwa Hong, President of KNU, noted, “Advanced research and source technology development conducted at regional research institutes and universities will naturally lead to the cultivation of human resources, and once there is an industry where such talented people can remain, then a virtuous cycle structure for regional development can be realized. Kyungpook National University will prepare and manage its plan with utmost efficiency so that LINC3.0 can serve as a foundation for regional and national development.”
