The EUICF Selected for a Project to Foster Technology Commercialization Specialists and Provide Platform Support


Ewha is taking the lead in promoting the hiring of science and engineering personnel in businesses and establishing the foundation for the commercialization of technology developed through pubic research, as demonstrated by its selection for the Business-linked Youth Technology Specialist Training Project and the Support Project for Commercialization  Platforms of Biohealth Clinical Field-linked Technology.



The Ewha University-Industry Collaboration Foundation (EUICF, President Lee Hyang-sook) was chosen for the Business-linked Youth Technology Specialist Training Project supported by the Ministry of Science and ICT and the Commercializations Promotion Agency for R&D Outcomes (COMPA). The project is a follow-up of the Fostering Youth TLO (Technology Licensing Officer) project, which aims to foster workers specializing in technology commercialization based on the needs of academic-industry joint research fields and to promote the utilization and application of public research outcomes as a result.


Ewha succeeded in facilitating new employment and business start-ups in science-related majors by hiring graduate alumnae in science and engineering and strengthening the practical capacity for technology commercialization through the Fostering Youth TLO project over the last three years, which allowed Ewha to receive the highest grade of S in the final evaluation. Based on these successful experiences, Ewha will strive to successfully implement the Business-linked Youth Technology Specialist Training Project (March 1, 2021 to February 28, 2022 (1+2 years)) as well.


In addition, Ewha was selected as the chair school for the Seoul Council out of the six regions of the Business-linked Youth Technology Specialist Training Project, and accordingly, the EUICF will dedicate its utmost effort into operating joint training programs to strengthen commercialization capacity in cooperation with participating universities in Seoul and host an academic-industry cooperation conference to provide a job-matching service with enterprises based in Seoul.


Meanwhile, Ewha was also chosen as a top Grade-A partner of the Track2 Coordinating Support Type for the Support Project for Commercialization Platforms of Biohealth Clinical Field-linked Technology, which is supported by the Ministry of Health and Welfare and the Korea Health Industry Development Institute. The EUICF will lay the groundwork to assist the entire commercialization process from the discovery of a technological invention to its advancement and practical use, which in turn will lead to technology transfers and startup foundations as well as follow-up support to ensure effective commercialization specializing in health care and medical treatment.


Lee Hyang-sook, President of the EUICF, remarked that “universities, research institutes, and businesses are focusing on invigorating academic-industry cooperation through programs linked to technology transfer and commercialization with the aim to apply research outcomes across a wide range of areas. The EUICF also plans to provide various types of support for obtaining a valid patent based on Ewha’s excellent research resources and transferring and commercializing such technology with the aim to create further research outcomes for industrial innovation in this new era.”
