South Korea is expected to soon become a member of the Europe’s largest research and development (R&D) program Euro Star, the Seoul government said Friday. Euro Star is a joint R&D program run by Eureka, a network of 33 European states, including all 28 member states of the European Union, according to the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy here.
A memorandum of understanding on South Korea’s becoming a full member of the program has signed by South Korean Minister Yoon Sang-jick, who is currently accompanying South Korean President Park Geun-hye on her official trip to Europe, the ministry said in a press release. South Korea, if it joins Euro Star, will become the first non-European state to become a member of the European R&D program.
South Korea seeks to join Euro Star 2, a second five-year program that is set to be launched at the start of next year.
