Objective

KESTCAP, Korea EU Science and Technology Cooperation Advancement Programme, is based on the Science and Technology agreement signed between Korea and the EU, Nov 2006 and seeks to; provide a platform to strengthen the S&T agreement between Korea and the EU; improve this cooperation by identifying S&T fields of common interests of Korea and the EU; set up a website and information help desks to respond to specific inquiries on existing opportunities and available funding instruments; contribute to the Korea-EU policy dialogue on science, technology, and innovation. The specific objectives are to: Develop sustainable cooperation strategies; disseminate information and promote cooperation; and organise and support cooperative events between Korea and the EU. Work packages have been organized to ensure effective delivery of these objectives. They will create: a website portal to European-Korean S&T collaboration; an online database of researchers involved in interdisciplinary and collaborative EU-Korean research; information/help desk services for researchers seeking collaboration opportunities; networks of researchers involved in and interested in collaboration, and fora to share information and experiences; promotion of existing collaboration and opportunities for new collaboration; bilateral research networks to promote collaboration; and thematic networks in areas of mutual priority. KESTCAP is coordinated by KICOS located in Seoul, Korea. The implementation strategy will use 3 key instruments: study, website, and fora. Events such as fora shall be organised in a "top-down" manner and will be complemented by "bottom-up" fora. The Ministry of Education, Science and Technology, MEST, shall be funding approximately half of the total budget.
