❏ A networking event was held to encourage cooperation between universities and companies, drawing attention since industry-academia cooperation among foreign colleges based at the Incheon Global Campus (IGC) is becoming more and more active. Ghent University Global Campus announced on the 13th that the '2023 IGC Industry-Academia Cooperation Connect Week' took place on the 12th and 13th.

❏ This event, which had the theme "Global Industry-Academic Cooperation Communication Window," was organized by the Incheon Economic Office and co-hosted by the IGC Operating Foundation, Ghent University Global Campus, State University of New York Korea, George Mason University Korea, and the University of Utah Asia Campus. It was also sponsored by the Ministry of Trade, Industry, and Energy.

❏ Stanford Center Korea (SCIGC), Samsung BioLogics, CJ Healthcare, AP Tech, Incheon Techno Park, and the Korea Invention Promotion Association, the presidents of each university in the IGC, Hyundai Motor Company, and commissioner Kim Jin-yong of the Incheon Economic Office, Kim Hong-joo, head of the Free Economic Zone Planning Division of the Ministry of Trade, Industry, and Energy, and Park Byeong-geun, CEO of the IGC Operating Foundation, were among the attendees.
