Pohang city established Pohang Institute of Metal Industry Advancement (POMIA) in 2007 for technical support for local small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in collaboration with industry-academy-laboratory-government network including POSCO and POSTECH.
The steel industry is one of the most important businesses that had led the industrial modernization of South Korea. However, the prospective status of the steel industry is being weakened due to the internal and external changes and various challenges. Under these circumstances, Pohang city has taken the initiatives to become a sustainable city through steel industrial innovation and new business creation. Furthermore, POMIA has continually played a key role in leading and supporting the technology innovation for local industrial businesses as well as solving technical difficulties in the field.
POMIA, a reliable supporting partner for SMEs, will step forward to strengthen the global competitiveness of local steel industries through commercialization research activities.
Thank you for your support and interest.
