The Climate Technology Centre welcomed the Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology (GIST) from Korea as its 200th Network member today. GIST joins a global group of technology experts from civil society, the private sector and research institutions dedicated to technology transfer.
“Through our Network, we bring together a diverse global community of climate technology decision makers, suppliers and financiers to identify barriers to technology transfer, exchange technology experience, and provide technical assistance and capacity building to developing countries”, says CTCN Director Jukka Uosukainen. Over the past year, Network members participated in CTCN Regional Forums, hosted CTCN technology webinars, disseminated their research and case studies via CTCN’s Knowledge Platform, and were selected by CTCN to deliver technical assistance at the request of countries.
Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology (GIST) is a research-oriented university that focuses on the essential fields of applied science and engineering. The aim of the institute is to train highly qualified professionals to lead innovations in science and technology, promote cooperative research with industry, as well as educational and research exchange with foreign countries.
The Climate Technology Centre reviews applications based on applicants’ experience in climate technology policy, capacity building, knowledge sharing and/or implementation. Network membership is free.
Approved Network Members are eligible to bid for CTCN technical assistance work which is provided at the request of developing countries.
