IT Industry

The Daegu-Gyeongbuk area is well-known for having Korea’s largest IT cluster. The major companies within the DGFEZ represent a well-balanced mix of core IT sectors such as mobile, display, embedded S/W, and intelligent robots. In particular, major mobile devices producers such as Samsung and display manufacturers such as LG provide a baseload for other DGFEZ-based companies. Centered in Daegu, the IT cluster encompasses a number of cities in Gyeongbuk province: Gumi, Pohang, Gyeongju and Gyeongsan.

Recent growth has also been spurred by the increase in high tech medical research carried out in around the Medi Valley complex.

ICT research is carried out at the world-class facilities that include: the Daegu Gyeongbuk Institute of Science and Technology (DGIST) Pohang Institute of Technology (POSTECH) as well as and many government-supported research and development laboratories including: Pohang Intelligent Robot Institute (PIRI), and the Ubiquitous Technology Research Center (UTRC). These centers of excellence nurture IT-Convergence by providing an environment for open innovation.
