Korea leads international IMS research consortia
May 4, 2005
The Ministry of Commerce, Industry and Energy has granted an official approbation to set up a multinational corporation, a service bureau of the "Intelligent Manufacturing Systems" (IMS) in Korea to direct the international research consortia involving manufacturing and processing technologies.
The IMS is a non-profit multinational corporation set up to develop the next generation of manufacturing and processing technologies and currently active in its research consortia are nearly 300 companies and 200 research institutions throughout the world.
The IMS decided to put itself under the chairmanship of Korea at the 18th general meeting in Como, Italy in June last year, calling for opening of a service bureau for the efficient implementation of its 10-year 2nd-stage research and development program.
The corporation consists of 10 executives from South Korea, Australia, Canada, Japan, Switzerland and the United States.
The Korean bureau supports the operations of the International Steering Committee, a top decision-making body of the IMS, over 30 months under the direction of Rim Kwan, president of the Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology, while monitoring the process of the international research consortia among member countries.
