BK21 Co-space 4.0: Space-based Welfare during the Fourth Industrial Revolution
This educational research group’s purpose is to promote human-oriented, social, and technology-based welfare by designing spaces using technology developed and cutting-edge knowledge acquired during the Fourth Industrial Revolution in response to various social problems caused by low fertility rates and a rapidly aging society and to train and educate those who can realize this vision. In order to do so, it plans to increase convergence education that includes education on humanities and social sciences, design, and engineering and opportunities to conduct research that addresses social problems. It will also establish a practical education system that will give students opportunities to conduct research and field training and expand its international exchange system to give students access to more on-site research opportunities and help them grow as global leaders.
