Welcome to KIST Europe Forschungsgesellschaft mbH

KIST Europe was established in 1996 in Saarbrücken, Germany, as an overseas branch of the KIST in Seoul, Korea.

At a time when the globalization of science and technology was a new concept, the KIST Europe was the first and only Korean government commissioned R&D institute abroad with R&D capability in its own right.

Since then, the KIST Europe has endeavored to build global S&T networks with prominent EU research institutes in the field of basic and application orientated researches. Its partners are research institutes and industrial companies in Europe and Korea. Together with its partners, the KIST Europe solves problems and develops technologies which can be utilized on both continents. 


KIST Europe, once grown from a small seed sown, today employs about 70 employees coming from 13 different countries. They are spread over two buildings with a total of more than 9000 m2.


KIST Europe's goals for the future are clear: becoming the Center of Excellence in environmental and integrative nano-bio-engineering research and establishing the platform for effective S&T Collaboration between Korea and the EU.


Towards the Excellence.
