KIOST plays a pivotal role in the network of Korean maritime science and technology activities through cooperation with related maritime interagencies at home and abroad.

KIOST has signed bilateral agreements with maritime organizations in the Americas, Europe, and Asia and actively cooperates with international agencies such as IOC, PICES, WESTPAC, and SCOR POGO.

Through the Republic of Republic of Korea-China Marine Science Joint Research Center (CKJORC) inside FIO, KIOST has actively exchanged marine science and technologies with many maritime institutions in China and has utilized KCMSJRC as a foothold for major research collaborations in Asia.

The KIOST-NOAA Lab, which was established in NOAA, is currently conducting marine science and technology research. The lab holds international seminars in the U.S and is working on joint research projects with world-leading marine institutions.

KIOST has established the KIOST-PML Lab inside PML, England, and dispatched scientists to perform joint research on Northwest Pacific eco-system modeling, thus contributing to the advancement of Korean marine science research capabilities.

Through the establishment and operation of an R&D hub, the Republic of Republic of Korea-Peru Marine Science Joint Research Center at IMARPE will run a marine technology and science cooperation system and work on effective joint research with countries in Central and South America.

KIOST is also working as an advance guard for Republic of Republic of Korea’s marine science diplomacy by assisting and advising Korean delegations at international marine science organizations such as UNESCO/IOC and PICES.

As a partner with advanced maritime nations, KIOST is playing a vital role on the international stage. Through international cooperation activities, it is contributing to solving problems related to global warming, the environment, natural resources, and energy.
