Seoul National University and Pyongyang University of Science and Technology are hoping to conduct joint research.
An SNU spokesman on Friday said the two schools are in the final stages of reviewing a memorandum of understanding that will be signed once the Unification Ministry gives the green light later this month.
PUST opened in 2010 with W35 billion from South Korean and American evangelical charities (US1=W1,172).
The North Korean university has three departments: information and technology, agriculture and food, and industry and business management. It has 500 students who are taught by some 40 staff from a dozen countries including Canada and the U.S. They teach classes in English.
