Besides many other things Hanyang professors excel in, if there is one more forte, it must be their tennis skill. The Hanyang professor tennis team won the first place trophy in the first Capital-area Professor Tennis Tournament in doubles (2 vs. 2 players) on October 12th, 2019. The victory was especially meaningful because the team was an exemplary collaboration of professors from both the Seoul and ERICA Campuses. The winners were Ahnn Joo-hong (Department of Bio Engineering), Ryu Su-yeol (Department of Korean Language Education), Yoo Hyoung-suk (Division of Electrical and Biomedical Engineering), Kim Jong-hee (Department of Physical Education), Park Jae-woo (Division of Sport Science, ERICA Campus), and Ko Ji-hyun (Division of Sport Science, ERICA Campus).

The tournament was the first professor tennis tournament held for the capital-area universities. 22 teams competed in doubles matches. The Hanyang professor team won all five games with flying colors, from the preliminaries to the final. In the finals, they won against the Seoul National University team that was known to have many skilled professors. The team commented that their strategy worked well in the later interview. The Hanyang Faculty Tennis Club’s president, Professor Park Jae-woo (Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering) said, “the winning was especially meaningful because the team was formed by both the Seoul and ERICA Campus professors.” Although there had been active interchanges between the two tennis clubs, it is the first time that they joined as a single team. “We only had one practice run together before the tournament. Still, there was a sense of closeness, and our team worked in perfect harmony – perhaps because we are all a Hanyang family,” said Ryu. The two campus clubs already have plans to join the next tournaments together as well and strengthen their bond. They are also considering holding the annual Hanyang faculty tennis tournament together from next autumn. The Hanyang professor team pose for a photo on the day of the tournament.

It is also unique in that it is the only university tennis club where professors and other faculty members are combined together, whereas it is normally separated in other universities. “We also give free lessons. Anyone who is interested, feel free to join us!” Lim Ji-woo email@example.com Photos by Kim Ju-eun
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.

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.
