The government announced that it will open a one-stop information center to help foreign researchers settle in Korea.
The plan is part of efforts to enhance the country’s basic science research by attracting more highly qualified scientists from abroad, according to the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology.
The one-stop center will be established at the Institute for Basic Science in Daejeon. At the center, specially designated personnel will provide all necessary assistance, from housing to national, to foreign researchers who wish to work here. It will also provide translation services, officials said.
The IBS was established in 2011 as a part of the government’s 5.2 trillion won science belt project.
