From now on, Korean small and medium-sized companies in need of technology development support for materials, parts, and equipment will be able to use the R&D service of Center for Core Research Facilities at DGIST, which is equipped with top quality research equipment in Korea. By expanding the Center for Core Research Facilities, DGIST will be supporting independent technological development for companies that are vulnerable to the Japanese export control.
The Center for Core Research Facilities will allow Korean small and medium-sized companies to use its top quality research platform for process platform and precise analysis of materials and devices they developed, to pass the testing by large companies. The center has Korea’s best semiconductor FAB (device clean room), and infrastructure has 170 units for silicon-type semiconductor process, MEMS, telecommunication device, sensor, microprocess, measuring simulation and nano, and bioanalysis.
The center provides an ultrafine nano analysis technology using TEM (Transmission Electron Microscope) for thin fine film precursor, in order to test its effectiveness for supply to large Korean and overseas firms. In addition, the center provides the latest analysis of structure, composition, and spectrum for promising firms that manufacture semiconductor blank mask materials while providing test beds to photoresist1 developers that have become an issue due to the Japanese export control, to help localize its production.
Along with the Center for Core Research Facilities, DGIST plans to organize a technology advisory group to support the development of independent technology for materials, parts, and equipment. The technology advisory group will consist of 5 branches, including 4 technology branches (materials; robot, automobile, and equipment; ICT; bio and life sciences), 1 analysis branch, and 1 testing branch. 182 professors of DGIST, researchers, and technicians will participate in the advisory group, which will receive reports on challenging technologies from firms on its website. They will be quickly matched to a relevant branch and researchers to receive technology consultation and 1:1 onsite advice. DGIST will also be providing an internship program for industry-academy cooperation and patent consulting on new technologies.
President Young Kuk at DGIST said “We’ve decided to form not only an advisory group but also a research and testing center to encourage and support local and domestic companies that are facing difficulties due to the Japanese export control. We’ll do our best to help Korean companies so that they can overcome the crisis through our top-notch research infrastructure facilities and our advice on specialized research fields.” Request for consultation on materials, parts, and equipment technology advisory can be submitted to the website (https://smbrnd.dgist.ac.kr) or by phone (053-785-3119) and email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Meanwhile, the Technology Advisory Group of the 4 Korean science and technology institutions including DGIST will also be introduced at Coex in Seoul on September 17. DGIST, KAIST, GIST, and UNIST formed their own technology advisory group for materials, parts, and equipment according to the characteristics of their own institutions in August and have been sharing the links on their websites since then. The case examples and the achievements of advice are collected by the joint office of science and technology institutions.
