International Competition for the (New) Agricultural Research & Extension Services in South Korea

International Competition for the (New) Agricultural Research & Extension Services in Gyeongsangbuk-do, South Korea was launched by the Korea Institute of Architects.

Background of Competition

Followed by the relocation of Gyeongsangbuk-do Provincial Office from Buk-gu of Daegu Metropolitan City to Gyeongbukdocheong New Town in Andong and Yecheon in February 2016, direct institutions in Gyeongsangbuk-do and business places will be relocated as well to promote work efficiency.

Also, the current agricultural research service site has been experiencing environmental restrictions for effective agricultural technology research due to the urbanization of the surrounding area, and it is also difficult to reflect on the diversified research demands of local farmers.

It has become necessary to accept, commercialize, and supply technologies to respond to the new research demands in the fourth industrial revolution by securing desirable research facilities.
