The meeting took off with an exclusive guided tour of the Nobel Prize Museum where we amongst other things got to see Marie and Pierre Curie's laboratory equipment which is kept in the museums basement not open to the public. Later at the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences the Ambassador of the Republic of Korea in Sweden, Jeong-kyu Lee, honored us by joining the meeting and shared congratulatory remarks. The Chairs Magnus Jonsson and Jung Han Yoon gave remarks and researchers from the academies gave presentations about how they implement the UN Global Goals in their respecive field of research. We also had time to discuss common areas of interest such as academic leadership and how to engage in research policy as a young scholar.
