The DFK opening week will be held from April 22 – 24 in the international campus, with the official opening ceremony on April 22. The ceremony will be attended by Yonsei President Kap-Young Jeong, Aalto University President Tuula Teeri and members of the DFGN as well as key figures from various industries and local and foreign companies to discuss possible collaborations in the future.
