President’s Greetings

Welcome from the KOFST President

  • KOFST will take the lead

  • in Opening up Creative Future for the Republic of Korea with Science and Technology.
  •  

     

  • Endless potential of Koreans and the advancement of S&T throughout 5,000 years of history lie at the heart of the Han River Miracle we achieved for the last half a century. Since its foundation in 1966, the Korean Federation of Science and Technology Societies (KOFST) has firmly established itself as a pivotal center for the scientific and technological circle, representing the voices of 5 million scientists and engineers. It has made great contributions for developing national S&T and improving international competitiveness. By taking one more step forward into the global arena, KOFST will strive to lay out the future vision of S&T for the Republic of Korea.
  •  

     

  • To this end, KOFST will push ahead the three following core tasks:


  • - First, securing enough finance and strengthening support for scientists, engineers, and member organizations.


  • - Second, reestablishing its status as the headquarters of scientific and technological circle while establishing a welfare complex for scientists and engineers.


  • - Finally, transforming ourselves as an organization that lays out the national vision for Korea.
  •  

     

  • By faithfully fulfilling the three core tasks, KOFST will do its utmost to help the development of S&T translate into our national competitiveness. Moreover, KOFST will not spare any efforts to improve the rights and interests of scientists and engineers. I look forward to having constant support and active participation from all of our scientists and engineers. Thank you.
