The second webinar was moderated by Professor Woo-Kyun Lee, director of OJERI and MLRN and hosted four presentations. The first two, among others delivered by Dr Bernhard Seliger (representative HSF Korea), dealt with active implementations of aid in North Korea. The second two, delivered by Hyun-Woo Jo and Jiwon Kim, both PhD-students of Korea University, dealt with scientific background research.
