Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/ Some laboratories of the National Institute of Forensic Science (NIFS) will be upgraded and NIFS specialists will be upskilled with aid from the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA). Specifically, three laboratories of the institute will be renovated and receive technology and equipment upgrades and the specialists will be provided training in South Korea and in Mongolia, inviting South Korean specialists.  

The project to improve the capacity of Mongolia’s forensic science institute was selected from KOICA’s call for proposals, but its implementation scheduled for the first quarter had been postponed due to COVID-19 outbreak.

On September 25, KOICA Resident Representative Jo Haeng-Lan visited the institute to inform that the project will be implemented with funding of USD 7 million or MNT 19 billion between 2020 and 2030 even though the pandemic has not yet ended.
