It is my honor to take a responsibility for the 4th Chief Executive of Korea-Israel Industrial R&D Foundation from the beginning of September 2012. KORIL-RDF has a long history of bilateral funding organization with more than 100 R&D projects. I believe that the reason why KORIL-RDF has maintained its role for over a decade is that Korea and Israel complete each other in the industrial cooperation, not compete.
Israel has innovative and brilliant idea with the passionate entrepreneurship. Korea has industrial infrastructure with the spirit of commercialization.
As the relationship between two countries is getting close, I found that there are a lot of roles for KORIL-RDF to enhance industrial cooperation more than a joint funding for the R&D projects. I believe that my role is to discover it and carry forward to achieve it for the future of Korea and Israel.
I would like to welcome you to join us establishing bright future for our next generation. Your support and interest will be highly appreciated.
Dr. Tae Hoon Choi Chief Executive
Korea Israel Industrial R&D Foundation
