KIER Energy Eureka Forum

Date/Venue
- Aug. 7 (Thu), 2014 (13:30 - 18:00) / Room: Harbour B

Host Organization
- Korea Institute of Energy Research

Forum Chair
Bae Ki-kwang, (Director of New & Renewable Research Division, Korea Institute of Energy Research (KIER))

Purpose
- Promoting top-tier cutting edge research in the field of energy technology through networking with Korean-American scientists and engineers
- Final winners, through the KIER Energy Eureka Forum, will be awarded '2015 KIER international joint project*'

* Approx. 200 million won at maximum will be allocated for each project (More than 50% of the budget needs to go KIER researcher)

Speakers
- Korea-American scientists and engineers with creative idea in need of KIERs funding support who passed the 1st evaluation process by KIER Research Committee.

Forum Progress



* The number of projects to be awarded, which is supposed to be five (5) now, is changeable after the final evaluation process
