In 2006, the Ministry of Education selected 8 teams (two teams in science and technology, one in professional service, and five core project teams). Ajou University will receive 23 billion won for seven years for the project designed to foster advanced researchers demanded for the realization of Korea as a powerhouse of human resources in the 21st century.
For the project designed to recruiting the best professors from abroad to offer internationally competitive higher education, Ajou University will receive roughly 5.6 billion won for four years. This WCU research group aims to establish a world-class graduate program and cutting-edge research environment in financial engineering at Ajou University. The main areas of research by the WCU group are Asset Pricing, Risk Management and Real Option Valuation in the Presence of Agency Problems and Model Uncertainties.
The 8.8 billion-won project is designed to develop data processing technology and content production technology for the next-generation animation production during a period of 9 years. Ajou University was named an outstanding example at the "Regional Innovation Model Contest" held in 2005 and won the Prime Minister Award" ad the "Second Korea Regional Innovation Fair."
It is a 6.4 billion-won project designed to develop core technology for the embodiment of the integrated national defense strategy network by integrating various private and military information and communication systems for 7 years.
ITRC : Information Technology Research Center
The program is designed to increase national competitiveness by providing necessary information for basic research, creating efficient research environment, supporting the creation of infrastructure in order to build research hubs in universities, and fostering new researchers. Ajou University holds two Centered Labs ( Institute of NT-IT Fusion Technology, Research Center for Molecular Science & Technology) and receives approximately 3.5 billion won for three years.
The research center was founded on industrial-academic cooperation for the development of cell medicine using stem cells and the treatment of incurable diseases. The center, which will receive 6 billion won for five years from the Ministry of Commerce, Industry, and Energy, plans to introduce cell treatment methods for various diseases that have been untreatable through research on cell treatment and the cultivation of professionals in that area.
