Professor Ryong Ryoo, selected as a scientist wished to resemble and to be 2006
Professor Ryong Ryoo, selected as a scientist wished to resemble and to be 2006 Professor Ryong Ryoo (Department of Chemistry) was selected as a scientist wished to resemble and to be 2006. Professor Ryoo developed in 2000 world’s first nanoporous carbon material in which numberless several nanometer-sized holes were drilled. The development of this nanoporous material was introduced by international scientific journal NATURE in 2000 and 2001 and expected to contribute to the progress of mankind through the development of high efficiency fuel cell or ultra-light computer. Professor Ryoo also developed a new technology that can considerably improve the catalyst activation and stability of ‘Zeolite’, a main catalyst in the petrochemical industry, which was introduced by NATURE materials. The above achievements qualified Professor Ryoo for the selection. ‘Scientists wished to resemble and to be 2006’ were selected among scientists showing vigorous activities in the science and technology circle on the basis of their recent achievements, etc. by the Ministry of Science and Technology and the Korea Science Foundation, and total 10 scientists qualified to be the model of children and the youth were announced on August 24.
Foreign R&D Centers Cropping Up Here
Korea Times / 2004. 03. 26 By Kim Tae-gyu Staff ReporterThe world"s top companies and research institutes are rushing to Korea to set up research and development (R&D) centers. The Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) on Thursday said it isunder negotiation with several world-renowned firms or foundations,including University of Cambridge Cavendish Laboratory, Novartis, DuPont and EMC.The Ministry of Information and Communication (MIC) is also lookingto attract five to six multinational companies to establish R&D centers here this year. Korea has already become a home for R&D institutes from top-tier foreign outfits like the world"s No.1 computer-chip maker Intel Corp. and Paris-based medical foundation Institut Pasteur as well as Germany"s Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft. The MOST said Cavendish will exchange a memorandum of understandingto set up a joint research center here together with the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) as early as this May. The two entities will join hands to accelerate knowledge in the fields of nanotechnology, optical technology and physics to name a few,a MOST official said.It also seeks to invite Swiss-based pharmaceutical group Norvatis toestablish an R&D center here on occasion of the medical symposium that will take place here from March 31. The Fortune 500 company is expected to dispatch dozens of high-ranking staff to the two-day neuroscience convention. The Korea Foundation for International Cooperation of Science and Technology (KICOS), an affiliate of MOST, expects a few American companies, including DuPont, to open shop here.``DuPont is likely to make a decision, and we are currently under negotiations with several big companies like EMC,"" KICOS official KimKey-hyup said. EMC is the world"s third-largest maker of data-storage devices.Seoul seeks to host six high-tech information-technology (IT) research centers this year. Up to now, Intel and Fraunhofer committed themselves to setting up research centers here, and IBM will likely open an R&D center as soonas its affiliate IBM Korea"s bribe scandal regarding a government contract is settled. Such high-profile companies as Microsoft, Hewlett Packard and Qualcomm are welcome to open R&D centers in Korea, an MIC official said. The government is willing to provide financial incentives to foreignR&D centers.
