The increasing importance of science and technology calls upon KOFST, an organization of scientific and technological societies in various disciplines, to assume increased responsibilities for the advancement of our society.
KOFST will double its efforts to foster and support scientific and technological societies, who are the key actors in knowledge creation and diffusion, and also to expand the participation of scientists and engineers in social developments.
No less important role of KOFST is to link science and technology to the general public. We place a priority on promoting public understanding of science and technology so as to attain public support for science and technology.
