SEOUL, Oct. 29 (Yonhap) -- South Korea said Tuesday that it will seek to expand research cooperation with the European Union on climate and environmental issues.
Researchers and policymakers are set to exchange information and discuss future cooperation at a bilateral Research and Innovation Day gathering in Seoul on Wednesday, the Ministry of Science and ICT said.
Agendas at the gathering include climate, environment, information and communications technology, nanotech and the bio sector, energy and transportation and personal exchange.
