Presidents's Table

Science, innovation and skills for the future


The “Presidents‘Table“ is organised exclusively for the highly-ranked participants of EKC2013, comes from Korean research institutions or governmental organizations. It is a closed forum and the participants have the unique opportunity to learn about the topics and have a chance to discuss with all others.

We incited a speaker from BIS (Department for Business Innovation & Skills) which is a role model of current Korean government’s new department [Ministry of science, ICT & Future planning]. Mr. Gareth Davies who is a head of Science and Innovation at British Embassy in Korea will give a talk. He will focus on current BIS science and innovation support, the work of the SIN network and the activities currently conducted within the UK-Korea cooperation agreement.

BIS is the department for economic growth. The department invests in skills and education to promote trade, boost innovation and help people to start and grow a business. BIS also protects consumers and reduces the impact of regulation.

They work on topics such as

  • 1) business and Enterprise
  • 2) Consumer Rights and Issues
  • 3) Economic Growth
  • 4) Employment
  • 5) Europe (EU)
  • 6) Financial Services
  • 7) Further Education and Skills
  • 8) Higher Education
  • 9) Regulation Reform
  • 10) Science and Innovation
  • 11) Trade and Investment


Therefore, it would be good opportunity to learn how British government has developed their policies and guide lines for economic growth, business and industry as well as R&D.

We also invited a speaker from OECD, Ms. Raundi Halvorson-Quevedo. Ms. Raundi Halvorson-Quevedo is a senior advisor to the OECD’s Development Co-operation Directorate, which supports the analytical and policy work of the Development Assistance Committee (DAC). Ms. Halvorson-Quevedo has worked on development issues for more than 30 years, specialising in private sector development (including business management, financing and technology transfer), financial sector development, and strategic approaches for reducing poverty. She is currently working on inclusive innovation and development finance issues. Prior to joining the OECD, Ms. Halvorson-Quevedo worked at the World Bank on industrial and financial sector development in Latin America and Africa. Ms. Halvorson-Quevedo carried out a joint course of study at the masters level at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy and the Harvard Business School.
