Korea Association for Photonics Industry Development (KAPID)
The Korea Association for Photonics Industry Development (KAPID) was established on March 30th, 2000 with the purpose of the development of South Korea’s photonics industry and the promotion and expansion of relevant businesses. The Korean government has selected the photonics industry as one of its high-tech industries for the 21st century and has established plans for substantial investment in and for systematic promotion of the photonics industry. AS part of the government’s strong support, the KAPID was set up as a major civil organization to promote the photonics industry. We, the KAPID, will carry out diversified efforts to nurture and develop South Korea’s photonics industry and promote relevant businesses and will do the best to help South Korea achieve its vision of becoming the three biggest photonics centers of the world.
