Yonsei University opened the door to modern higher education over one century ago. It has since then emerged as the nation’s top private university and ranks among the world’s most prestigious universities. Building on our history and tradition, Yonsei will actively pursue a new future. Seeking to find our place in the spectrum of civilizational transition, Yonsei will lead the next 100 years and write a new history.
We are now entering a world of unimagined possibilities. In a whirlwind of massive transformations, the rapid development of communication and scientific technologies in particular are reshaping the university teaching and research environment entirely. The demand is rising for a new education model that supports a generation expected to live to be 100 years old. Thus, Yonsei University is reforming its research, education system, and supporting administration in order to lead the way in forward-thinking research and education for a changing society
The Yonsei Frontier Lab was newly inaugurated in 2017 in order to strengthen Yonsei University’s research capacity and keep pace with the changing world. We aspire to construct an Open Network Lab that connects stellar researchers both at Yonsei and abroad through a joint research hub, and thereby present a new globalization model for research and education. The ground for this initiative is the fact that future research will be pioneered, not by individual researchers, in a particular field, through a single institution, but through the conflict and collaboration between diverse ideas. Through this, we seek to consolidate Yonsei University’s stature as a global research institution.
We ask for your interest and proactive participation in the future for the world’s researchers and Yonsei Frontier Lab.
