Mia Davidson, the President of EAROPH, gave her welcoming remarks for attendees. Dr. Sehoon Park, Director of the GDPC, introduced the activities of the GDPC at KRIHS for the national chapters report. Participants at EAROPH expressed their interest in collaborating with the GDPC at KRIHS. After the national chapters report, the Secretary General of EAROPH delivered the activities of EAROPH International during 2018–19.

Based on Korea’s expertise in smart cities, EAROPH Korea (KRIHS) will be responsible for the green technology, smart cities, and infrastructure committee.
