KF-VUB Korea Chair will be one of six partners implementing the European Commission’s EU-ROK Policy Dialogue Support Facility‬

The European Commission has awarded a consortium involving VUB, led by Brussels-based consultancy company ICF and South Korea-based consultancy Ecosian, and also comprising three other partners the €2.4million project EU-Republic of Korea Dialogue Support Facility. The KF-VUB Korea Chair will lead management of the VUB's involvement in the project, in particular with regards to security- and connectivity-related activities. The partners will organise conferences, meetings and dialogues across South Korea, write reports and other publications, and offer general support and advise to the EU's activities with the Asian country. The EU and South Korea hold over 40 regular dialogues on issues ranging from North Korea's nuclear programme to all aspects of their trade relationship to gender equality. South Korea is the first and only Asian country to have implemented the three key agreements covering political, economic and security relations with the EU.
