The National Research Council for Economics, Humanities and Social Sciences(NRCS) is a public institution under the Pri Minister and was established to assist in the performance of the affairs of the state.
Its main activities are the support, fostering and systematically administration of 23 affiliated research institutes under the areas of economics, humanities and social sciences. The NRCS was reorganized in 2005 through merging the Korea Council of Economic and Social Research Institutes and the Korea Research Council for Humanities and Social Sciences that were established separately in 1999.
We have performed functions, such as the improvement of management efficiency, as well as research circumstances of research institutes and the development of national agendas, research planning, and coordination of research area, to enable the affiliated research institutes to successfully achieve their goals.
Over the past 50 years, as Korea has achieved unprecedented success in cultivating both industrialization and
democratization, it today gets abreast of other countries leading the world. We are now faced with historical missions and tasks for building a top-notch, advanced nation.
The NRCS will contribute to the promotion of national policy in collaboration with affiliated research institutes. For this purpose, the NRCS will make efforts to provide a system that is able to fulfill and support effective and dynamic studies in order to fully accept various policy issues raised by the rapidly changing research circumstances.
We will make every effort to successfully implement our missions with our research institutes. We always appreciate
further public interest and support.
