Research and Entrepreneurship
By bringing together leading researchers and talented students, as well as government and industry partners, NYU and KAIST will create a new, cross-continental nexus of innovation, discovery, and entrepreneurship.
These efforts benefit from dedicated spaces both on NYU’s Downtown Brooklyn campus, the home of the NYU Tandon School of Engineering and the heart of the University’s technology and emerging media corridor, and KAIST’s main campus in Daejeon, South Korea.
Joint professorships, affiliations, and doctoral and postdoctoral fellowship opportunities will also be available.
Cochaired by an NYU and KAIST faculty member, each research group leverages each institutions' considerable academic and research expertise to innovate solutions and drive advances in some of the world's greatest challenges.
Jump to: AI and Digital Governance • Cyber Resiliency and Security in an AI-Enabled World • Digital Innovation for Cities and Climate Change • Inclusive Artificial Intelligence (AI) • Intelligent Health Engineering • Intelligent Wireless Communications • Neural Science, Technology, and Artificial Intelligence (AI) • Next Gen Robotics and Artificial Intelligence (AI) • Next Gen Semiconductor Devices and Chips
