The application for this fellowship was jointly supported by Professor Thomas Gries (Chair of Textile Engineering), Professor Roger Häußling (Chair of Sociology of Technolgy and Organization) and KHK c:o/re Director Professor Stefan Böschen. The fellowship thus strengthens interdisciplinary cooperation in the field of engineering, sociology and artificial intelligence (AI).

The fellowship enables Chun-Shik Kim a short-term stay at the KHK c:o/re at RWTH Aachen University to work on his project “Applications and challenges of artificial intelligence technology in school and training: A comparative study between South Korea and Germany”. The different approaches and attitudes of the two countries offer a unique opportunity to examine in detail the various challenges and approaches to implementing AI in educational institutions. Chun-Shik Kim’s research aims not only to analyze existing differences and challenges, but also to develop solutions to optimize the use of AI worldwide to increase educational attainment and learning success.

To present the outcomes of his fellowship, Chun-Shik Kim will give a public university lecture on July 9, 2024, 5-6.30 pm, at KHK c:o/re, Theaterstr. 75. The lecture will be held in German.

RWTH Kármán-Fellowships are funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and the Ministry of Culture and Science of the German State of North Rhine Westphalia (MKW) under the Excellence Strategy of the Federal Government and the Länder.
