On September 27th, President Kim Woo-seung of Hanyang University announced a plan to attract more than 500 companies that will effect employment with 10,000 jobs after 10 years as well as advance the ERICA Campus to an innovation campus that will fuse three key sectors -- academy-research-industry.
This unveiling took place during the ERICA Campus 40th anniversary. 10 years from now in 2029, the ERICA Campus will celebrate its 50th anniversary. Currently, approximately 190 companies and laboratories occupy the ERICA Campus with facilities or offices, including Gyeonggi Techno Park, LG Innotek, and the Korea Institute of Industrial Technology (KITECH). As a result of these partnerships, the ERICA Campus has been called Korea’s representative academy-research-industry cluster (connoting the fusion of key industries). Recently, the ERICA Campus was selected for the ‘Campus Innovation Park Leading Business’ by the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Land, the Ministry of SMEs and Startups (MSS). The university was also chosen as an InnoTown for R&D, which is run by the Ministry of Science and ICT (MSIT), completing the preparatory steps to lure companies and laboratories inside the university.
President Kim said, “We will complete the urban high-tech industrial complex that provides a synergy effect among the university, laboratories, and companies until the year 2029.” He purported enthusiasm in establishing an academy-research-industry cooperative and innovative platform which connects the university's capability with regional and strategic industry. “We will create an unequaled, high-quality university that will form an organic ecosystem with our society,” he added.
Jeon Hae-chul, an assembly member for the Democratic Party, Yoon Hwa-sup, the mayor of Ansan, Germany's Max-Planck laboratory, Erwin Neher, an honorary professor and winner of the Nobel prize in physiology and medicine, and Kim Jong-lyang, the Chairman of the board of Hanyang Academy, all participated in the commemorative event.
