About Us
The International Forum on Strategic Technology (IFOST) is a nonprofit organization formed in 2006 to promote multi-level collaboration among its member institutes, currently consisting of six universities:

  • University of Ulsan (Korea)
  • Novosibisk State Technical University (Russia)
  • Tomsk Polytechnic University (Russia)
  • Harbin University Science and Technology (China)
  • Mongolian University of Science and Technology (Mongolia)
  • Chemnitz University of Technology (TUC) Germany

Each member nominates a director to the Board of Directors (BoD), a body responsible for setting up broad policies and managing affairs relevant to IFOST. Each year IFOST organizes and sponsors an international conference, hosted by member institutes in turn, on a variety of topics in academics, technology, and regional policies affecting respective members. The first IFOST conference was held in Ulsan in 2006, while the 14th and the most recent one will be hosted in Tomsk in 2019. The IFOST headquarters is presently located at UOU, Korea.
