New Science Ministry Will Focus on Fundamental Study

Abstract:
The government should pay more attention to fundamental science research rather than spending money on already prospering applied science and technologies, said the new minister of education and science.

Kim Doh-yeon, who started working at the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology last week, criticized previous governments for regarding science merely as a tool of economic growth.

The SERI report asked the government to focus on six fundamental science fields, while leaving the IT and other profitable sectors to the private sector. The six fields are smart logistics and energy infrastructure; bionomics and drugs; renewable energies; unmanned military equipment; nanotechnology; and artificial intelligence.
