Major Research Areas

The Institute of Symbiotic Life-TECH pursues technology, ecology, culture, and humanity which may be continuously adapted to future changes in society in a wholesome way and conducts integrated research by focusing on symbiotic life which includes the following three aspects:
  • Symbiotic living with humans (people, neighbors, users, residents, consumers, etc.)
  • Symbiotic living with nature (natural ecology, green growth, sustainable environment, etc.)
  • Symbiotic living with technology
    (ITC technology, network technology, robot technology, ubiquitous technology, etc.)

Long-Term Plans

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.
  • The objective of the Stage 1 (2017) is to establish the groundwork in symbiotic life study and development as leaders in the research area. The objective of the Stage 2 (2022) is to establish the international groundwork in symbiotic life study. The objective of the Stage 3 (2027) is to establish an international model for integrated research in symbiotic life study.
  • Stage 1 is the period when the groundwork for long-term accomplishments is prepared. The objectives of Stage 1 are summarized as follows in the research and study promotion section, education development section, and industry-education cooperation project section.

Major Projects

Research and Study Promotion

The Institute of Symbiotic Life-TECH will be recognized as a research-oriented institute which will be the most active in integrated research about symbiotic life in the domestic fields of social science, gerontology, construction environment, and design. The Institute will be a leading model in establishing the academic groundwork. With respect to the publication of research papers, the number of international research articles including SCI research articles per participating professor will be increased to a level which is about double that of the current level.
SCI-class research journals 『Journal of Symbiotic Living Science & Technology and Journal of Aging Friendly Design & Technology for Health & Independence』 will be published.

Education Development

The Institute of Symbiotic Life-TECH will be a leading benchmarking model in Korea in the area of symbiotic life by developing differentiated educational content and curriculum to foster integrated study to specialize researchers required by future society and by merging industry-education cooperation into the curriculum to strengthen the employment basis so that the specialized researchers may be able to use their abilities and contribute to various industries. In addition, the Institute of Symbiotic Life-TECH will establish an international unique human resources fostering model in preparation of future society. For this purpose, integrated disciplines such as advanced age-friendly industry study, life style industry study, and user science will be developed.

Industry-Education Cooperation Project

The Institute of Symbiotic Life-TECH could be an additional project which is necessary for a university to independently survive in the future, a test bed for research and development results, or a practical site for education. The Institute of Symbiotic Life-TECH may help to accumulate university development funds or serve as a network through which industry-university links are established and extended. In addition, in this aging society, the Institute may be a practical project site in which retired professors may continuously contribute to local society by using their knowledge. For this purpose, a venture enterprise, a university autonomous operating project, a technological holding company, a cooperative association, or a social enterprise may be established.
