Hanyang University ERICA Campus has been selected as a new research center for participating in the Gyeonggi-do Regional Research Center (GRCC) Project. The local government of Gyeonggi-do announced on the 19th that a total of 2 centers, the Hydrogen Energy Core Material Research Center of Hanyang University ERICA and the Innovation Research Center for Multiple Materials Processing Techniques of Korea Polytechnic University, have been selected from the 5 universities that applied for the project.
The GRCC Project is an Industry-University Cooperation Project that connects universities within the local area and supports the technology development process, while also supporting the small and medium-sized companies that lack research-based infrastructure. The project will strive to prevent the reduction of research due to COVID-19 and the ensuing economic hardships, while also supporting research development to secrure a competitive edge for the future.
The two selected universities will receive full support from the government for technology development for the next 6 years, receiving a total of 3 billion won.
The Hydrogen Energy Core Material Research Center of the ERICA Campus is planning to support the start-up process of junior researchers with ideas that allow the independence of companies with technologies. This is to vitalize projects related to hydrogen energy, which is a next-generation eco-friendly energy.
The Innovation Research Center for Multiple Materials Processing Techniques of Korea Polytechnic University aims to lead the development of the local machine industry through the application of multi-materials for lightening transport machines and the development of additive and bonding technologies.
Lim Moon-young officer of Future Development Policies of Gyeonggi-do mentioned that in order to secure a competitive edge for the future, endless research development is needed, and that they "hope that companies within the province succeed in technology development by utilizing research centers with leading technologies and research infrastructure."
