Established as the Association for Supporting Science and Technology in 1967 and renamed as the Korea Foundation for the Advancement of Science and Creativity (KOFAC) in September, 2008, KOFAC has devoted itself to promotion of public understanding of science and development of creative human resources as a national R&D institute designated by the Korean government.
In this rapidly globalized world, Korea is determined to be a “First Mover” who leads change rather than a “Fast Follower” who seeks to catch up leading countries. To be a “First Mover,” nurturing human resources with convergent mind is the essential task the nation should deal with first and foremost.
In this regard, KOFAC, a leading think tank to lead science culture and creativity education, is committed to advancing its activities and operation, based upon the achievements for the past 40 years in public understanding of science, math and science education programs, and human resources development activities. Furthermore, employees and staff of KOFAC pledge to endeavor to realize its mission of “Creative Society based on Science.”
We look forward to your continued support and encouragement on our journey.
