Professor Joon-Woo Bae has been elected as a member of the Young Korean Academy of Science and Technology (Y-KAST) next year. In KAIST, a total of 9 members were elected as members of the Young Korean Academy of Science and Technology (Y-KAST) of the following year, and Professor Joon-Woo Bae of our faculty was proudly named.
The Korean Academy of Science and Technology announced on the 9th of this month that 34 researchers who have shown outstanding research achievements in the field of science and technology research were elected as members of Y-KAST next year.
Y-KAST was launched in 2017 as an academic organization in which young scientists under the age of 45 conduct political activities and overseas academic exchange projects. Among scientists living in Korea under the age of 43, researchers with outstanding academic achievements are selected as Y-KAST members. The next generation science and technology leaders with high potential to contribute to the development of science and technology in Korea are selected by evaluating the achievements accomplished as independent researchers in Korea after acquiring their doctoral degrees. The total number of members is 150, consisting of 8 members in policy fields, 45 members in science, 45 members in engineering, 22 members in agriculture and fisheries, and 30 members in medicine and pharmacy. The next-generation member’s term of office is three years starting from January of next year, and the member can serve consecutively until the age of 45 through examination.
Once again, congratulations on Professor Joon-Woo Bae for being a member of the Young Korean Academy of Science and Technology (Y-KAST).
