Overview

Young Woman Scientists (YWS) Camp has been held annually since 2012 for the next generation women scientists and engineers in Asia Pacific nations to strengthen their global capacities, to exchange research information, and to share cultural experiences.

This year, in order to expand this great opportunity, the camp will take place for 3 days. Since Daejeon is the hub of R&D in science and technology in Korea, we believe participation in the 2018 YWS Camp will not only be a great chance to empower oneself with scientific capabilities but also to make friends and expand one’s global network.

Purpose of program
  • Establish networks and expand mutually-beneficial exchange among Korean, foreign resident, and Asia-Pacific
    women scientists and engineers
  • Provide opportunities for Korean female science and engineering majors to enhance global capability and form
    networks
