About Daejeon

Daejeon is a large city located in the center of Korea. Major train lines and expressways go through this home of major government, science and education facilities. With the success of the Daejeon Expo in 1993, the city began to concentrate its efforts in promoting itself as a city of science and technology. Daejeon is also designated by the Central Government as the country’s second administrative capital (after Seoul), with the central governmental buildings erected in 1997. Since rebranding the city from a science and technology perspective, the government chose Daedeok as its main R&D zone to form a base to promote international business cooperation in science, and to enhance its standing in international community.
