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.
Since 2010, Korea Aerospace Research Institute (KARI) has organized International Space Training Program [KARIST]. This annual, two-week long course has been attended mainly by young professional from developing countries and emerging spacefaring nations. The main goal of this training program is to provide various opportunities for the beginning professional to develop capacities.
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 2019, 245 trainees from 34 countries have participated in this program. KARIST is now evolving into an international platform to build up our 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.
