The harvest from the mountains and fields become precious resources for life.
Abundant resources of the sea become green energy.
Advancing to the world with Korea's refinement and taste
Opening the next 100 years of Korea
by combining the Food, Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Industries
with advanced science technologies
IPET is standing at the center of this future.
The combination of the Food, Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Industries and R&D demonstrates the endless potential for changes and growth in the precious resources from the mountains, fields and the sea, and our food industry.
One of the successful examples is rice, which is primary food of Koreans.
R&D investments have put new wings on rice.
The development of various functional rice products has heightened the value of rice
and more precise processing technologies have created new consumers.
And now, the application of rice is being expanded to the functional materials industry by combining it with advanced science technologies.
These combinations that will change the world are taking place actively in every field of the Food, Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries industries.
Just like the transformation of rice, which no one had ever thought of, IPET was established to efficiently carry out planning, management and evaluation of the Food, Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries industries and advanced science.
Systematic investments for the future!
IPET presents the course of R&D policies in the Food, Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries field by grasping the current science technologies worldwide and forecasting the societies and markets of the future.
It is also working to build an integrated Food, Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries R&D Database to establish a long-term plan and to improve investment efficiency based on accurate information.
Fair Evaluation, Transparent Management!
By implementing regular evaluation and support systems,
IPET is evaluating R&D projects fairly and managing them transparently to provide support for seamless project execution
From developing biotechnologies, which are a next-generation core industry,
to developing high-value-added food technologies,
commercial technologies for the fisheries industry,
strategic technologies for exportation,
as well as supporting convergence research centers
and commercialization of technologies,
IPET is working to distribute the research progress and technology transfers in these fields and to provide various incentives for outstanding projects.
The people that nurture other people!
Securing outstanding human resources is an investment for the future.
IPET is also striving to nurture outstanding human resources that will lead the future by converging IT, BT and NT to the Food, Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries industries.
In 2010, the Food market will be measured at 4.4 trillion Dollars, which is a size that far exceeds automobile and IT markets, and it is showing an average growth rate of 3.9% a year.
For food, energy, resources and the environment,
the Food, Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries industries are the key to all worldwide agendas.
IPET will open a new horizon of Food, Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries industries through advanced science technologies and systematic investments.
