LED-IT Fusion Technology Research Center

Introduction

Our LED-IT Fusion Technology Research Center has been established for the "development of LED-IT fusion industry", which is a new growth industry. This important national strategic industry combines various components of preexisting LED-intensive industries, such as the LCD, automotive and lighting industries. "LED technology + IT technology" should be integrated, given that the LCD, IT, and automotive illumination parts industries are already highly integrated in the Gyeongsan region. Therefore, Gyeongsan is a very suitable environment for the development of the LED-IT fusion industry. Its strategic location suggests that the development of the area as a regional stronghold in the field of LED fusion is possible. Indeed, it has the potential of becoming an industrial cluster for LED-IT fusion technology, as it is well connected to the region's preexisting strategic industries.

Thus, this research center's core activities are (1)to build the LED-IT research center's infrastructure and research fusion-type technology, (2)to develop company technology and evaluation support service (3) to develop specialized personnel training, (4) to promote LED-IT fusion technology, as well as to strive to achieve growth and development, not only in the LED material and parts industries, but in the LCD, automotive, and lighting industries as well.

Our LED-IT Fusion Technology Research Center has been appointed by the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy as the Southeastern region's LED-IT Fusion Technology Research Center(technology support center). It seeks to surpass the high levels of technological development of advanced nations in the LCD display, automotive illumination parts, and lighting industries, which are predicted to grow rapidly. We also strive to develop LED-IT fusion technology into core and leading commercialized technologies in order to secure its position and dominate the global market for related industries. Through this, not only will the nation's LED-IT industry improve the nation's position as the hub of Northeast Asia's LED fusion industry, it will also become the main driver of national economic development. We will strive to reach a standing as a core research facility that leads the new industries of the country's economy.

Vision

Our Center will strive to become the world's third largest LED-IT research center in 2017 and increase our national status as a hub of the LED fusion industry.
