KMI will focus on the research beneficial to national economic development!

 

  For more than three decades since its establishment in 1984, the Korea Maritime Institute (KMI) has committed to research for the development of shipping, ports, marine, and fisheries industries, becoming a specialized research institute in shipping, ports, maritime and fisheries sector.

 Moving forward, KMI will concentrate on conducting policy research beneficial to national economy and people’s lives, based on world-leading research capabilities. To achieve this, we are going to carry out our research on most urgent and practical tasks that the public expects in shipping, ports, marine and fisheries sector.

  In particular, our research efforts will focus on areas including developing maritime port logistics, making fisheries aquaculture into a high-tech industry, supporting creative start-up companies, promoting collaborative convergence research, developing marine policy and conducting policy research on advanced technology for maritime safety.

  Furthermore, KMI will make sure voices of the general public and companies will be heard in our all research activities such as shipping policy, port logistics policy, international logistics policy, marine policy, fisheries policy, marine leisure policy and marine science technology policy.

  Also, KMI is organizing papers of foreign research institutes, company reports, and analysis articles of the press with regard to shipping, ports, logistics, fisheries, fishing villages and marine sector. In doing so, we are committed to providing the most extensive and fast information on these areas to industry, academic circle and policy departments of the government.

  With these efforts, KMI will make best efforts to position itself as a leading research institute by solving current issues of the general public, companies, and industry, and further contributing to the development of national policies.
