Korea IT Learning Program
Korea IT Learning (KoIL) Program invites policymakers, public officials, and experts in the IT field to share the newest technologies and issues to be reflected on national policies and plans in order to address welfare, poverty, economic, and educational challenges using IT oriented system tools.
Participants from KoIL Program learn Korea's IT development strategies, discuss current issues and trends, and seek means of cooperation to advance their nations' strategies on ICT planning, information security, rural informatization, and incorporation of new technologies.
Field training programs are also available to better reflect distinct national status and demands.
In addition to the major programs offered independently by the Korean government, some area-focused seminars are designed jointly with international organizations such as Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), Asia Development Bank (ADB), and Africa Development Bank (AfDB).
Participation costs (airfare, accommodation, and per diem) are covered by the Korean government.
KoIL Program also offers the Global ICT Leadership Forum to participants every year. The forum may consist of the following topics: ‘ICT Solutions for Government and Public Sector’, ‘Analysis of Big Data, Cloud and Mobile’, ‘Building Smart City for Sustainable Future’, ‘Privacy Protection and Security Solution’, and many other ICT related topics.
From 1998 to 2016(Aug.), about 140 KoIL programs have been offered to 4,346 participants from 127 countries.
