"The latest investment is likely to help researchers at local universities whose projects have been delayed or suspended amid the COVID-19 pandemic," the company said.

The program allows local universities to use Samsung's advanced chip equipment for their research projects.

Samsung said it plans to expand its industry-academia cooperation program in the field of basic science, such as physics and mathematics.
