The completion ceremony of Fraunhofer Project Centre (FPC) for Composites Research@UNIST (FPC@UNIST), the Korean branch of Fraunhofer Institute for Chemical Technology (ICT) is scheduled to be held in the Composites Research Center (123) on November 7, 2018.

There will be also a signing ceremony of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) among UNIST, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), and University of Western Ontario (UWO).

The FPC@UNIST represents a unique and unprecedented partnership bringing together a Korean university, a German industry, and Korean government. Following Canada, this is the second branch that has been approved by the headquarters of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft. Led by Professor Young-Bin Park in the School of Mechanical Aerospace & Nuclear Engineering at UNIST, the center focuses on developing lightweight composites at this testing-ground facility through full industrial-scale trials.
