[Media Briefing][Korea Joongang Daily] Hanyang University Accepts Chinese QR payments

Starting in September, Hanyang University will accept tuition fees via WeChat Pay. The program is being developed with Shinhan Bank, and approximately 900 or so convenience stores and restaurants at train stations in Korea have started accepting WeChat payments. Many institutions including Hanyang University have begun accepting Chinese QR code mobile payments, and the growth of the Chinese payment system is becoming a concern for some individuals. One concern is that since the networks are Chinese, it may be hard to track down the payment records, and that could lead to tax evasion. However, with the growing popularity of direct purchases, many online shopping malls have started accepting mobile payment systems as well. As a potential consequence, this could result in Korean exporters evading taxes. View original article : http://koreajoongangdaily.joins.com/news/article/article.aspx?aid=3057334

[Media Briefing][Korea Joongang Daily] LG U+ 5G car drives itself on expressway

LG U+ employees demonstrate using an autonomous car with 5G connectivity in Seoul. Hanyang University and LG U+ have succeeded in demonstrating a '5G-powered self-driving vehicle' by successfully testing it on an expressway for the first time. The self-driving car developed by Hanyang University was successfully driven on LG U+'s 5G network for 25 minutes across seven kilometers (4.35 miles) of busy city roads including the Gangbyeon and Olympic Expressways. Hanyang University received footage of the test drive in real-time from a low latency video transmitter developed by LG U+. Sunwoo Myung-ho, who teaches automotive engineering at Hanyang University, said, “Self-driving cars that run on the 5G network will make important contributions to solving social problems like traffic volume and accidents.” Hanyang University will continue to work with LG U+ to polish its 5G-based self-driving car technology. <Link to the article> http://koreajoongangdaily.joins.com/news/article/article.aspx?aid=3057111

[Media Briefing]The joint teams led by professor Shin Dong-wook develop PCFCs

A group of South Korean scientists has developed a protonic ceramic fuel cell (PCFC) that greatly improves both performance and scalability, helping to move forward the commercialization of next-generation eco-friendly power generation systems, researchers here said Tuesday. The joint teams, led by Shin Dong-wook of Hanyang University and Lee Jong-ho of the Korea Institute of Science and Technology, claimed that they satisfied high performance and cost efficiency aspects of next generation fuel cells. Over the past decades, PCFCs have been praised as a next-generation technology. However, PCFCs needed to overcome limitations on performance due to the refractory nature of proton-conducting ceramic electrolytes and low chemical stability. The researchers said they have achieved the best value reported for PCFCs through an anode-assisted facile densification of a proton-conducting electrolyte on a structurally and compositionally uniform anode support. "Since all of the utilized fabrication processes were cost-effective, consistent and readily scalable, the advances fulfill the requirements of high performance, scalability and cost-efficiency for achieving commercial feasibility of PCFCs," the researchers said in their report. Their findings were published in the latest edition of the journal, Nature Energy. ▲ Some scientists of the joint team who developed PCFCs

[Media Briefing][Korea Joongang Daily] Hanyang, the University with the Fourth Highest Number of Alumni Working as Independent Directors at the Top 30 Conglomerates

According to a report released by the Daishin Economic Research Institute, about a third of independent directors at Korea’s chaebol are from law enforcement agencies and prestigious universities. Hanyang ranked fourth among the top universities with 5 graduates in top positions. 66.6 per cent of 54 professors who double as independent directors for the top 30 conglomerates belong to four universities: Seoul National University, Korea University, Yonsei University, and Hanyang University. Daishin Securities researcher Ahn Sang-hee stated that “Companies tend to pick such officials due to the belief that they will help expedite and smooth the administrative process for the business by maximizing their experiences and personal connections with colleagues.” He also added, “But these biased choices can prevent firms from securing the expertise required for effective management in the long run.” <Link of the article> http://koreajoongangdaily.joins.com/news/article/article.aspx?aid=3047068&cloc=joongangdaily|home|newslist1
