As a member of the international space community, Korea seeks to contribute to the capacity building activities by sharing our knowledge, skills, and lessons learned in space technology and applications, which we have gained through our own experience. The main goal of this program is to provide various opportunities for the beginning professionals to experience and discover potential capacities.
At the 2009 IAC held in Daejeon, Korea, Korea announced to contribute to the capacity building of space community. Since 2010, KARI has organized annual a two-week long program ‘KARI International Space Training (KARIST)’ for young professionals from developing countries and emerging spacefaring nations.
KARIST marked the 10th anniversary in 2019 and in celebration of the anniversary, a special joint session with UNOOSA was organized to focus on the theme of “space applications for disaster management”. Experts invited through UN-SPIDER network provided lectures on space technology for disaster management and international mechanisms for supporting emergency response.
As of 2021, 298 trainees from 36 countries have participated in this program. KARIST is now evolving into an international platform to build up global space capacity as a whole, and will continue to serve as a foothold for furthering KARI’s global partnership as a member of the space community.
