“A strong power in the S&T infrastructure! NFEC will stand at the fore to make it a reality.”
NFEC was established by the Framework Act on Science and Technology to provide systematic support for research F&E for the development of science and technology.
In the past, investment in research facilities and equipment(F&E) was needed in order to support science and technology development. In the present day, however, greater efforts are seriously needed for the advancement of research F&E at a national level as state-of-the-art research F&E are leading new science and technology.
NFEC is exclusively responsible for the research F&E of all Korean R&D organizations. In this capacity, NFEC will clearly identify the needs and the domestic and global environmental changes at the time the advancement of research F&E is needed. NFEC will then put its best efforts in maximizing R&D productivity by systematically implementing its mandates, such as strategic investment in research F&E, promotion of co-utilization of research F&E, nurturing of technical manpower, and overall operational management. Based on its creativity and professionalism in such responsibilities as the establishment of the management standard guidelines and classification system for national research F&E, preparation of the National Large-scale Research Facilities Roadmap, NFRM, and establishment of an information management and distribution system for national research F&E, NFEC will devote itself to the promotion of a national S&T infrastructure by enthusiastically conducting its promotion programs including equipment policy, equipment information, equipment education, equipment operation, and equipment transfer.
We will do our best to become the world’s best brand for the promotion of S&T infrastructure culminating in outstanding development in science and technology. We look forward to your continued interest and support.
