Academic Exchanges

Object & History

The NRICH is promoting the Visiting Scholar Program, which invites world-renowned scholars to enhance the value of Korea heritage and promote future-oriented research.

They will stay in Korea for approximately 10 days to review and exchange results through expert advice through field and related regional surveys and meetings between researchers. During this period, it is expected that research capabilities will be strengthened by identifying global research trends, improving the quality of ongoing research projects, and discovering new research projects.

In addition, public lectures are given to the general public, and talks are held to provide opportunities for sharing and exchange with next-generation researchers such as university students. It will be an opportunity to hear the opinions of world-renowned scholars on the coexistence of generations for the sustainable preservation of cultural heritage.
