ubiquitous-Lifecare Research Center (u-LCRC), established in 2006 with a funding from Ministry of Knowledge Economy of Korea, is a unique Information Technology Research Center dedicated to developing human lifecare technologies based on the principles of east-west neo medicine. The center is an interdisciplinarily organized research unit for technology development and education which is located at Global campus of Kyung Hee University in Korea.
Some highlights of the center include:
- The center＊s investigators include computer engineers, biomedical engineers, electrical engineers, chemist, western medical doctors, and eastern medical doctors.
- The center receives a funding of about 1 million dollars annually in total of about 8 million dollars for eight years.
- The center＊s research goals include bio-MEMS and smart sensor technology in Research Core I, proactive computing technology in Research Core II and smart object and u-lifecare platform technology in Research Core III.
- The center aims to bring future technology to lifecare (which includes healthcare) for smart home, smart office, smart hospital, smart car, and smart environments, promoting better life of humans.
Working with u-LCRC
- Corporations from various industries, government departments, and international universities have become partners in u-LCRC＊s research and development projects. These partners include industries such as Sam Sung Electronics, Intel, Korea, Korea Telecom, KETI, ISU, Wiz, and universities in Japan, USA, China, Canada, and other countries. u-LCRC promotes commercialization of research outcomes and international collaboration to spread lifecare technologies to every human in the world.
- Also as a research center at university, u-LCRC provides training programs to undergraduate, graduate, post-doctorates, and international scholars in our u-lifecare technology. Any participant to our program is welcome to our center with his or her purpose of getting trainings or pursuing higher degrees in master＊s and Ph.D.
