Kavli ENSI / KENTECH Exchange Program

An exchange program has been established to foster research collaboration in the fields of energy technology between the Korea Institute of Energy Technology (KENTECH) and the Kavli Energy NanoScience Institute (ENSI).

On September 22, 2023, Professor Peidong Yang, the director of ENSI, and Professor Chino Park, the Vice President for Research and Dean of KENTECH Institutes, formally signed a Memorandum of Understanding. This agreement aims to support the development of programs and activities that promote academic advancement through their collaborative efforts.

The primary goal of this partnership is to promote and simplify international cooperation on topics of shared academic interest. Both ENSI and KENTECH encourage interested members of their academic and research communities to actively participate in these collaborative initiatives.

KENTECH, established in 2021 by the Korean National Assembly, holds the distinction of being the world's first university exclusively dedicated to energy research, technology, and addressing climate change. Its campus, situated in Naju, just outside Gwangju, South Korea, is currently under construction and is designed to operate on zero-carbon energy sources and incorporate eco-friendly technology.
