Soongsil Institute of Fusion Technology (SIFT) SIFT, a Leader in Fusion Technology in the 21st Century

Fusion is a trend of the times. From the industrial point of view, the 21st century is a period of knowledge-based fusion industries. This new period of global fusion technology requires that the old partitions and compartments that have long been a modus operandi in universities and industries be removed and that a new paradigm of consilience between disciplines, between technologies or industries be established to achieve packaging, hybridization, and even fusion of technologies. Soongsil Institute of Fusion Technology has been launched as an R&BD* organization in this context.
