KORDI establishes a research hub in the UK's Plymouth Marine Laboratory

KORDI-PML Lab opening ceremony held on 21st


KORDI (president Jung-geuk Kang) held an opening ceremony for KORDI-PML Lab in the UK's Plymouth Marine Laboratory (President Stephen de Mora) at 09:00AM (local time) on NOV 21st.

* KORDI-PML Lab : Overseas research hub established by KORDI in U.K. PML


Both organizations officially launched KORDI-PML Lab operation and research coordination through the ceremony. This was followed by a panel discussion to derive future joint research methods. In the conference, experts from both organizations presented and discussed △ marine pollution by harmful substance △coast ecosystem modeling △coast observation △marine remote exploration △ and evaluation on marine underground carbon storage to derive an actual implementation plan to coordinate.


 KORDI signed a mutual agreement to establish KORDI-PML Lab with PMK in April, and then dispatched marine circulation modeling expert Dr. Hyun-woo Kang in OCT to help prepare for the opening ceremony, create initial operational conditions, and coordinate on the research.


Establishing a research hub in an overseas advanced research institute to secure a global level research and development capability and vitalize competent research personnel exchange has been KORDI's most coveted project. Finally, KORDI was able to establish an overseas research hub in the UK, about 2 years after establishing KORDI-NOAA Lab in the US NOAA in 2009.

PML, located in Devon at the end of the Southeast UK, is a global level marine research institute. It has been more than 31 years since it was established, and holds about 250 researchers working in 18 departments. The institute is globally recognized for its excellent analysis using marine bio, chemistry, marine acidification, equipment analysis, correction, and marine satellites, with a focus on climate change, coastal disasters, and marine organism research.
