Fifty years ago, Korea was still depending on foreign assistance, today, it has
become the greatest powerhouse in information and communication technology in the world
making aggressive R&D investment in ICT including TDX, 64K D-RAM, and CDMA
Particularly, with anticipative response to the change in paradigm, Korean ICT
R&D efforts lead the creative economy by putting R&D resource on convergence in
the industry to help realize further economic growth and people’s happiness ahead of
its competing countries.
IITP supports the efficient implementation of research projects at the research
sites by systematically integrating the entire cycle of R&D in information technology
reflecting the characteristics of ICT industries that have a short life cycle of
technology changes in the rapidly changing market.
A virtuous cycle structure will replace the existing system so that outstanding
R&D achievements may be actively utilized in the industrial fields through fair
assessment and diffusion while creating ‘research-friendly’ environment for
the field research workers.
In helping Korean ICT industries lead the global market, we will set the clear
course for growing leadership that is distinctly IITP and the world’s top R&D
institution in information technology.
