KAIST signed an agreement with three major hospitals in Korea, the National Police Hospital, Seoul National University Hospital in Bundang, and the Armed Forces Capital Hospital, to respond to national emergency situations such as the outbreak of epidemic diseases.

The signing ceremony for the agreement took place on July 27, 2015, at the JW Marriott Hotel in Seoul.

Under the agreement, the four institutions will cooperate in conducting research in basic medical science to develop treatments and vaccines, building a system to deliver emergency medical services including the establishment of preventive measures against epidemics, and providing emergency medical assistance to under-developed countries.

This agreement was initiated by the Institute of Disaster Studies at KAIST.

President Steve Kang of KAIST said, “Korean society has recently experienced the importance of building a network of medical intuitions and research universities to handle national emergency situations when Middle East Respiratory Syndrome hits the nation hard. We need to prepare for epidemics and biological disasters, and this agreement is the first step towards serving such need.”
