Samsung Science and Technology Foundation, established in 2013 by Samsung Electronics to help foster development of science and technologies, releases semi-annually a list of research programs for funding. The foundation announced its selection of 19 future technology research projects to support in the second half of 2022. The projects include the pioneering studies and future technology research programs of 9 in science and 10 in technology. Professor Kyeongsik Nam’s work on “Universality of log-correlated fields” has been chosen as one of the 9 breakthrough research projects in science.
