Honorary Fellowship

Following a proposal from the External Relations Committee, Council recommends Professor Min Huh for election to Honorary Fellowship at a future Ordinary General Meeting.

hjklhMin Huh has been a hands-on, field-orientated palaeontologist for more than 30 years and as a leader is energetic and prominent in promoting the Korean geosciences internationally.

He continues to publish significant, well-cited papers in his field and at the same time plays important roles in national geoscience outreach and policy, as Director of the Dinosaur Research Centre and as President of the Geological Society of Korea.

He led a major initiative to have the Korean Dinosaur Coast nominated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, in 2009, and it remains on the list to be considered for this status at a later date. In 2016, he led the successful Korean application to host the 37th International Geological Congress in 2024 and is now co-chair of the implementation committee.   

The Society expects to take an active part in the 2024 IGC and hopes to develop and strengthen links with relevant Korean national organisations in the intervening years.
