We have paved the way for Korea&rsquo;s nuclear industry to break new ground. Among our key achievements are the design and construction of the Korean Standard Nuclear Power Plant, localization of nuclear fuel, localization of research reactors, and development of radioactive technology. In this age of energy transition and the fourth industrial revolution, KAERI has established new R&amp;D directions in accordance with the government&rsquo;s strategies for the development of nuclear technology. Accordingly, the institute has set five new research directions: to solve social issues, createjobs, contribute to the national development strategy, prepare society for the future, and lay a solid foundation in science. KAERI prioritizes safety in its pursuit of the five research directions. We will exert efforts to ensure the safety of nuclear facilities and R&amp;D activities. We will increase transparency, in terms of both research and management. We hope to earn the trust of the people, including members of the local community, by communicating actively and maximizing nuclear safety. KAERI, which has contributed to national growth over the past 60 years, seeks to establish itself as an institute for the people. It will set new standards, placing greater emphasis on safety and human life, and produce the best possible outcomes in research. All members of KAERI staff, promise to work to develop nuclear technology that people can depend on to be safe and reliable. President, Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute (KAERI) Won-Seok Park
