At the event, relevant experts from FEALAC member states and the ROK will deliver presentations on policies for industry-academia collaboration and outstanding achievements in the field, and seek ways to promote substantive cooperation between the two regions.

◦ On the occasion of the forum, the ROK will inform the Latin American countries of its cases of industry-academia collaboration and build networks between the Korean and Latin American officials in the field.
