International Workshop on EEWS 2010 was held.
On October 7 and 8th at Fusion Hall of KI Building, KAIST, the 2010 International Workshop on EEWS (Energy, Environment, Water, and Sustainability) was held. The third to be held, forty national and international academic professionals including Mark Shannon, professor at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Domen Kazunari, Tokyo University professor, Dong Sub Kim, CTO of SK Energy and Doyoung Seung, Senior Vice President of GS Caltex, participated at this year’s workshop. In twelve sessions, themes including Artificial Photosynthesis, Wireless Power Transfer, Green Aviation, Safe Nuclear Fuel Reuse, Fuel Cells in Action, LED 2.0, Foundation of Energy-Water Nexus, and Flexible Battery & Solar Cell were presented and discussed. “Through this workshop, current EEWS policy and research progress from different countries and the future of related technologies will be foreseen,” said Jae Kyu Lee, Dean of KAIST EEWS Initiative. “I hope it became an opportunity to create cooperative relationships with leading researchers.” EEWS is a research project conducted by KAIST to solve global issues that mankind faces today such as depletion of energy, environmental pollution, water shortage, and sustainability.
KAIST listed 27 research subjects for EEWS.
The Office of EEWS Initiative at KAIST announced 27 research projects to be implemented in 2010. The EEWS stands for energy, environment, water, and suitability. KAIST established the EEWS Office in 2008 in efforts to solve problems facing mankind today such as depletion of natural resources, environment pollution, climate changes, water shortages, and sustainable growth. On the nationwide, the Korean government has taken initiatives to support “green growth” and “green technology” projects. In 2009, the EEWS Office supported 24 research projects and received 28 patent rights, 6 patent registrations, and 57 Science Citation Index (SCI) papers. This year, the office chose 27 research subjects including 7 flagship projects: flexible lithium polymer batteries, spent nuclear fuel recycling, highly efficient bio-butanol, liquid electrolyte battery solid oxide fuel cell, LED lighting, artificial photosynthesis, and nano organic solar cells. New research topics begun this year include energy-saving desalination system and ultra-thin film of silicon solar cells. Jae-Kyu Lee, Dean of EEWS Initiative Office said, “Having multiple volume of small-scaled, topic-focused research projects will encourage us to come up with large-scale convergence research projects. In so doing, we can explore new frontiers of science and technology and serve as the new growth engine for the development of green technology and industry in Korea.” All the research projects selected will be subject to evaluations. For example, the EEWS Initiative Office will host an international workshop in September 2010 where it plans to introduce and evaluate the ongoing research projects.
