LG Chem Global Innovation Contest
LG Chem will hold a Global Innovation Contest (GIC) for leading universities and research institutions around the world.
This is the first time that a Korean chemical company is conducting technology contests for the entire world.
From June 18th to September 30th, 2018, LG Chem will accept innovative technology ideas in five business areas: Energy, Environment, Functional materials, Bio technology and Platform technology.
Global scholars and researchers who are interested in developing the next generation’s innovative technology and industry-academia collaboration research are welcomed to participate and submit the technical proposal through the official website.
LG Chem will select internal experts and selection committees to evaluate the proposals considering technology innovation, marketability, and price competitiveness. Selected assignments will be notified individually to applicants in December.
LG Chem plans to provide research and development expenses of up to $150,000 to universities and research institutes that are selected as final projects, and to provide opportunities for manpower and technology exchange through dispatching researchers for at least one year.
In addition, LG Chem will hold regular technical seminars and conferences for the winners of the Global Innovation Contest to establish and maintain a network to attract the talented in R&D.
