IBS Campus Research Centers

  • The Institute for Basic Science (IBS) was established with the vision of “Making Discoveries for Humanity & Society”. To achieve this vision, IBS selects and operates Centers based on the following four guiding principles: scientific excellence of researchers, openness through research collaboration, creativity of research themes and autonomy in research. Centers concentrate on the research of basic sciences such as physics, chemistry, mathematics, life sciences, convergence, etc. Directors choose the themes of their research and allocate funds accordingly. Generally, Centers operate projects with no fixed term for their duration as long as the quality of research is verified in evaluations.
  • POSTECH has attracted 4 IBS campus research centers in 4 different fields – Chemistry, Life Sciences, Mathematics, and Physics, and research funds of more than 100 billion won from the year 2012 to 2016.
