It is expected that new industries will be developed through the conversion of the energy paradigm and that the amount of private investment in these industries and relevant employment will increase steadily.
a shortage of 15,628 people
As innovative competition based on eco-friendly, highly efficient, and convergent characteristics has occurred in the market, the need for innovative research outcomes has increased. Accordingly, the demand for high-quality research experts has increased.
Expected shortage of experts across all energy fields by 2028
people in bachelor’s programs
people in doctorate programs
Practical work experience and research and development capabilities are core capabilities required in practical energy industries. As the need for technology convergence capabilities has recently increased, integrated talent based on technological and multidisciplinary approaches has become desirable.
* Prioritized capabilities for employment in energy companies: practical work experience (50.7%), research and development (23.1%), and technology convergence (13.1%)

Clusters and large-scale research facilities will be constructed based on KENTECH.
These clusters consist of a communal campus zone, an R&D zone for the KENTECH institutes, and an industry and venture zone.
The communal campus zoneKorean and international university-level departments related to energy IT will be attracted (e.g., a global campus, an integrated industry–university–research campus, and halls for joint research and lectures)
The R&D zone for the KENTECH institutesPublic and corporate labs will be attracted (e.g., global joint research centers and prominent labs from around the world).
The industry and venture zoneHigh-tech and venture companies related to energy will be attracted (e.g., global leading companies in the energy field, a venture town, and a techno park)
The support centerSupport for cluster planning, operation, and cooperation will be provided (e.g., an industry–university–research support center, a venture incubation center, and a convention center)
