Research Support for Faculties

Reserve Funds for Projects

Purpose

To inspire faculty members’ motivations to obtain outside research and improve their potential as strong candidates for certain projects.

Contents and Scope

A. 0.5% of annual project expenses are supported as reserve funds for applying for a project in the case of a large project jointly

applied for by multiple full-time faculty members (Humanities & Social Sciences: KRW 100 million/year; Science: KRW 300 million/year or more); however, the potential application and amounts are determined by the Project Development & Planning Team considering the characteristics of a project, and such amounts cannot exceed the maximum supportive fund.

B. If the selection process of a research project is divided into a preliminary plan (or technology proposal, idea contents, etc.) and main

planning evaluation, only those selected as subjects for main planning evaluation are supported (excluding the expenses spent on preparing a preliminary plan).

C. If the research is a strong candidate for a project because multiple faculty members are involved in the planning stage of a large

project, the reserve fund for a project can be supported even before the project is announced; however, the potential application and amounts are determined by the Project Development & Planning Team considering the characteristics of a project, and such amounts cannot exceed the maximum supportive fund.
