Advising and nurturing for future healthcare

Message from
Acting Director


The Center for Cluster Development and Coordination (CCD) was established in 2005 to accelerate KBIC’s development by providing assistance to KBIC-based companies and small and medium-sized local companies in their business projects, promoting collaboration between the KBIC and overseas clusters, and facilitating trans-sector partnership.
The CCD coordinates collaboration and integration among various companies, universities, research centers, and medical institutions that constitute the KBIC for synergetic effects from their concentration. Under its seamless support system, the CCD also promotes the KBIC’s international activities.
