Poznan University of Technology has signed a cooperation agreement with Korea University of Technology and Education (KoreaTech). The conclusion of the agreement is the first formal step enabling the realisation of joint activities in the fields of research and teaching.
The agreement was signed during a visit by a delegation from the partner region of Chungcheongnam-do in South Korea. The province has a wealth of experience in modernising and phasing out coal-fired power plants, as well as implementing new low-carbon energy technologies, with a particular focus on hydrogen technology.
Chungcheongnam-do is home to 29 of Korea’s 58 coal-fired power plants, and is also home to the world’s largest hydrogen-fuelled power plant. Coal-fired power plants with a total capacity of 15.3 GW are scheduled to be shut down by 2034. The province is pursuing a programme to transform the sector with financial participation from the central and regional governments and energy companies.
