STM: Asean Green Technology Cooperation Project
Dr Kwanyoung Kim, Green Technology Center Korea
‘Green Technology Partnership Initiative: Why GTPI cooperate, how GTPI work and what GTPI pursue’
In this seminar, Dr Kwanyoung Kim will share his experience with the ASEAN-Green Technology Cooperation Project. This project aims to develop a multi-stakeholder technology knowledge sharing and collaboration platform in Singapore. It works as a one-stop information shop where a variety of stakeholders (e.g. government, academia, companies, start-ups and tech investors) can share and obtain updates on the latest policy needs, industrial trends, tech innovation and business cases. Moreover, it helps to identify partners and to collaborate to design innovative green projects.
This case may help us understand the following issues:
- 1) the current status of green tech cooperation projects in ASEAN;
- 2) challenges of developing a multi-stakeholder platform and ecosystem, and
- 3) how to manage these challenges.
Kwanyoung Kim is Director of the Green Technology Partnership Initiative (GTPI) and is working as a senior researcher investigating sustainable development of green climate technology cooperation. Before joining GTPI, Kwanyoung spent over 15 years working in Korean government departments. He developed projects for the International Development Cooperation (IDC) and also specialised in policy and strategy development in science and technology innovation projects. Kwanyoung received his Doctoral and Masters degrees from KAIST (Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology) after graduating from Chungbuk National University and Handong Global University with majors in Statistics, Management and Economics.
