Furthermore, KIMM is researching creative and challenging mechanical technologies that can bring direct changes into our day-to-day activities. We are paving the way in turning the imaginary technologies – such as sustainable energy technology, environment-friendly technology for the Earth, or the safe and reliable mechanical technology – into real practical technologies that provide hopes to our citizens. For these purposes, KIMM and all of its members are committed to working diligently to cultivate an organizational culture that respects diversity and creativity and an atmosphere for mutual respect and collaboration, creating a self-generated driving force to break through any difficulties that lie ahead.
