On November 5 (Tue) at its Ilsan Headquarters, the KICT held a ceremony to celebrate the opening of the Future Convergence Hall, which will be the center of extreme environmental construction technology.

An international forum titled “Extreme Construction Beyond the Boundary” was also held as part of the opening event, and there was a showcase of various construction technologies that can be used in space and in polar regions.

As part of the forum, Professor Bernard H.Foing of the International Lunar Exploration Working Group (ILEWG) of the ESA talked about the “Moon Village,” a moon space station construction project. In 2016, the KICT and the ESA signed an MOU for KICT-ILEWG mutual exchange and have since conducted joint research in advanced space construction technologies. The recent opening event allowed the two agencies to further strengthen their cooperation.
