Nov. 15, 2012 – The Department of Sustainable Biomaterials hosted a visit by three representatives from Chonnam National University in South Korea last spring: Dr. Yoon Soo Kim, university president; Dr. Gyonggu Shin, vice president of International Programs; and Dr. Hyeun-Jong Bae, director of the Bioenergy Research Center. During their visit, Dr. Bae presented a seminar on bioenergy issues in Asia and research developments at the Bioenergy Research Center.

In a meeting with administrators and scientists at Virginia Tech, the Chonnam delegation signed a memorandum of understanding between the two universities and discussed a student exchange program. There are many commonalities in the academic offerings of Virginia Tech and Chonnam, which is ranked as one of the top 100 universities in Asia. “We look forward to future collaboration, particularly in the area of sustainable biomaterials,” said Professor Barry Goodell, who is a personal friend of Dr. Kim and arranged the visit.
