Delegation extends ties with Hanbat

Excellence in research has enabled the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science (ACES) based at UOW to play a critical role in helping forge a new institutional partnership between UOW and Hanbat University Korea.

The proposed partnership that plans to establish greater research and teaching ties with Hanbat University, South Korea, was discussed during a recent visit by a UOW delegation led by Deputy Vice-Chancellor (International) Professor Joe Chicharo.

Hanbat is proposing to create a Global Consortium University consisting of a Graduate School for next generation converging technology, a global research and development centre, and a commercialisation centre in Sejong City. The delegation explored ways that UOW could be involved in this new venture.

The emerging Sejong City is being developed by the South Korea Government as a second capital and home for the Prime Minister's Office and 36 administrative agencies

The city plans include relocation of 16 national research institutes and high-tech industry facilities.

The UOW delegation included the Director, Transnational Education and Alliances, Dr Bill Damachis; ACES Executive Research Director, Professor Gordon Wallace; and Australian Institute for Innovative Materials Executive Director, Professor Will Price.

ACES has a well-established research collaboration with Hanbat in developing new electromaterials for energy storage. ACES also has strong collaborative links with Hanyang and Sunchon University in Korea.
