Whilst the recent start of the fourth industrial revolution and the spread of COVID-19 have led to increase in attention for big data analysis, Hanyang University joined hands with Gyeonggi-do and agreed to build a strong cooperative relationship for vitalizing data usage.
Gyeonggi-do signed an agreement on the afternoon of June 22 called the Data Usage Vitalization Cooperation Agreement with Hanyang University, Kyonggi University, Daejin University, Ajou University, Pyeongtaek University, and Hyupsung University.
The agreement ceremony held at the Gyeonggi-do Business & Science Accelerator, was attended by about 10 people, including Lim Kyu-gun, Director of the Hanyang University IC-PLB Center; Lim Moon-young, Director of the Gyeonggi-do Future Growth Policy; Shin Kwang-soon, Director of the Industrial-Academic Cooperation Group at Kyonggi University; Lee Jung-rye, Director of Planning at Daejin Univeristy; Shim Kyu-chul, Director of Planning at Ajou University; and Oh Hyun-sook, Director of Job Start-ups at Pyeongtaek University.
On the basis of a government-academic cooperation system, the six universities, including Hanyang University, along with Gyeoggi-do will actively participate in vitalizing data-based administration and academic activities.
Gyeonggi-do supports professors and students in data-related university departments by providing public and private data and infrastructure that the province holds. The six universities will participate in data education course development and operation, proceeding assignments and research, and finding various solutions and development methods for provincial government issues by using the data and infrastructure that Gyeonggi-do provides.
Lim Moon-young, Director of the Future Growth Policy said that "the importance of collecting and saving data and analyzing it to predict the future and provide alternatives has increased after the spread of COVID-19," and that "I hope this agreement will be a stepping stone for active research and enforcement of data-based administration."
