President Byung-Seon Jeong presented the 'KISTEP Think 2022 Science and Technology Innovation Policy Direction' at a special session under the theme of 'The next five years, the decisive future of science and technology in Korea'.

 

President Jeong said, “The paradigm of competition for hegemony is changing from military and economy to technology-centered. We are facing an era of great transformation such as digital transformation and demographic change. In the past, the S&T policy has been focusing on R&D investment to support economic growth. However, it is now necessary to shift the directions to enhancing the safety and quality of life of the people and addressing societal issues.” He also stressed, “As the impact of science and technology on the economy, industry, and society as a whole increases, it is important to expand the boundaries in terms of the policy.”

 

Next, he introduced the keywords of the 'KISTEP Think 2022 15 S&T Innovation Policy Agenda' as following: the five S&T powerhouses leading Pax Technica, realization of a healthy and safe society for everyone, the leap forward as a digital economy leader in the digital earth era, innovation of the system for nurturing and utilizing S&T talents in an era of population decline, and advancement of the innovation system in the age of 100 trillion national R&D, and he also suggested 15 agendas and policy tasks.

In the following presentation, Lee Donggi, an associate research fellow at the Center for Technology Foresight, KISTEP, introduced KISTEP 10 emerging technologies along with the 2030 NDC (Nationally Determined Contribution). Carbon captured and utilization Bio-based chemical raw material/product production(manufacturing) technology Low carbon iron and steelmaking process High-capacity/long-life secondary battery Clean hydrogen production Ammonia firing power generation Grid integration system High-efficiency solar cell Large-scale offshore wind power system Rare earth element recycling.

 

"We comprehensively analyzed the feasibility of the technology, the impact on economy and industry, and contribution to reducing greenhouse gas emissions. These technologies can contribute to achieve carbon neutrality soon in 5 to 10 years rather than the far future," said Lee.

 

Finally, he said, "The field of technology we will be spearheading reflects the trends in the values that our society considers important," adding, "We hope that the future society we dream of will become a reality through emerging technologies."
