“To become a world-leading research institute for basic science”

“In 10 years, we will become a world-leading research institute for basic science.”

Noh Do-young (pictured), president of the Institute for Basic Science (IBS), said, “The leading foreign research institutes know about IBS and are supporting the creation of a new research institute in basic science. After 10 years, our goal is to become a research institute that competes with them.”

President Roh held a press conference on the 16th to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the opening of the school and said, “When I was asked, ‘What has improved by doing basic science, there is nothing I can say yet, so I am talking about foreign cases, so I am proud of basic science in Korea. I wish there was something to do.”

Director Roh established a development direction for the next 10 years to ‘lead new discoveries in basic science’ in celebration of the 10th anniversary of the opening of the school. In addition, as a promotion strategy, he presented opportunities for autonomous research to the world’s best talent, formation of a research group focusing on basic and innovative fields, establishing an organizational system that leads long-term and large-scale research, and driving shared growth in domestic basic science.

Director Roh explained, “The first phase installation of the Korean heavy ion accelerator Raon will be completed by the end of this year.” He said, “Currently, we are in the stage of completing the acceleration module required for the heavy ion accelerator, but after optimization, actual operation will take three to four months longer than initially expected at the beginning of next year,” he said.

Director Roh added, “The vision set at the time of establishment, the goal of making discoveries for people and society, will not change.”
