Four-Step BK21 Project, a total of two educational research groups are selected
Sungkyunkwan University said it topped the list of private universities in the preliminary selection of the four-step BK21(Brain Korea21) project. A total of 31 educational research groups (teams) were selected for our university. Business schools were selected as two educational research groups, <Professor Lee Gun-chang - Cross-management Future Talent Education Research Group (Future Talent Training Project) / Professor Song Kyo-jik - Global FinTech Talent Training Research Group (Innovative Talent Training Project)>.
In particular, the newly selected Global FinTech Talent Training Research Group (Professor Song Kyo-jik) aims to foster master's and doctorate-level ICT global talents who will lead the era of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
The BK21 project is a representative master's and doctorate-level personnel training project that supports graduate students' research scholarships and up-and-coming research personnel labor costs so that the succeeding generations can concentrate on their studies and research. The fourth phase of the BK21 project was recruited by dividing it into a "future talent training project" to enhance research capabilities in basic and core academic fields such as basic, application science, humanities, and society, and a "innovative talent training project" to support convergence talent in new and social (local) industries. It will be carried out from September to August 2027.
"We will take the lead as a world-class research-oriented university by fostering future and innovative talents who can take the lead in responding to future social changes," a BK21 official said.
