On July 17 (local time), the KICT and the Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology (Empa) signed an MOU for the joint planning of new major international cooperative research between Korea and the EU in the field of construction, as well as for exchanges related to new business areas.

The KICT and Empa are the leading agencies for construction technology in their respective countries. Recognizing the growing need for Korea-EU cooperation for the development of new business areas and the completion of large-scale research tasks, the two agencies agreed to function respectively as beachheads for mutual exchanges and cooperation in Asia and Europe.

The signing ceremony took place at the Vienna University of Economics and Business in the Austrian capital of Vienna on July 17, with KICT President Seung Heon Han, Empa board member Dr. Tanja Zimmermann, and key personnel from both agencies in attendance.
