About NRC

History

In March 1999, 43 research institutes which had previously been run by separate government departments were transferred to the office of the Prime Minister and reorganized into 5 research councils, including the Korea Council of Economic and Social Research Institutes and the Korea Research Council for Humanities and Social Sciences. However, in order to resolve problems and inadequacies with the research institute administrative and management system, as well as to strengthen the inherent function of the research council, in July 2005, 2 research councils in the field of economics, humanities and social sciences were integrated into the NRC of today.
