Objectives of the Institute of Symbiotic Life-TECH

Human life and the environment surrounding it are becoming more complicated and sensitive. The times are rapidly changing to a time in which a multi-dimensional approach and integrated thinking are required. There is need for research to make modern society as well as science and technology be flexible to the rapid changes of the world and a need for an organization to do so.

Therefore, the Institute of Symbiotic Life-TECH was established to conduct integrated studies more professionally with respect to the technologies for complicated human life. The Institute of Symbiotic Life-TECH will convert the research system by efficiently improving the operation of the dispersed research organizations in order to conduct studies with more competitiveness.

In addition, as society turns into a citizen-led one, research areas will be greatly influenced by the subjective humans as final units such as users, residents, citizens, consumers, and inhabitants. Studies will be more focused on such users having complicated aspects. The Institute of Symbiotic Life-TECH will develop “user science” more professionally to lead such a trend.

The goal of the Institute of Symbiotic Life-TECH is to be recognized as a world-class research institute in the field of symbiotic life fusion research areas. The Institute has set objectives in three stages which are to be complete in 5 years, 10 years, and 15 years from 2012.

Vision and Direction of the Institute of Symbiotic Life-TECH

The Institute of Symbiotic Life-TECH will be a field of fusion in which multidisciplinary cooperation is a precondition. The multidisciplinary cooperation will develop new academic areas such as life information engineering design, advanced age-friendly integrated study, advanced age-friendly industry study, advanced age-friendly fusion technology study, advanced age-friendly environmental design study, and fusion design study, which will extend the scope of senior citizens welfare, design, and technology and engineering and contribute to the creation of a unique academic area.

From a technological aspect, the Institute of Symbiotic Life-TECH will develop user-friendly up-to-date fusion technology, user-friendly space system development technology, user-friendly design technology, user-friendly intelligent housing platform, and test bed establishment technology. From industrial and economical aspects, the Institute will make an economic contribution to various new growth engine industries such as user-friendly life industry, construction integrated industry, intelligent housing industry, advanced age-friendly industry, and design industry by developing the groundwork for expanding to domestic and international markets.

From a social aspect, the Institute of Symbiotic Life-TECH will solve many social problems and reduce the costs caused by the rapid aging of the population, delay social recession, provide the possibility of a healthy and self-supporting life for all of society, and spread spatial culture to support that possibility. In particular, the Institute will relieve the sense of crisis caused by the rapid increase in the aging population and decrease in healthcare human resources, promote social stability, and contribute to.

From a sociocultural aspect, the Institute of Symbiotic Life-TECH will develop a method by which human society may be harmonized and in balance with the natural ecosystem and technological civilization so that a wholesome life culture can be found and spread throughout modern society which is governed by the logics of the economy, leading to a future symbiotic culture.
