  • Professor Yong Sik Ok becomes the first Korean President of the International Society of Trace Eleme

    Founded in Austria in 1999, the International Society of Trace Element Biogeochemistry (ISTEB) is a non-profit scientific organization of scientists and professionals who are interested in trace elements and key minerals research. The organization advances research on trace element biogeochemistry mainly through its flagship conference, the International Conference on the Biogeochemistry of Trace Elements or “ICOBTE,” which is held biannually. The ICOBTE is a world-renowned conference on trace elements, including key minerals such as cobalt, nickel, and manganese.

    The highest governing body of the ISTEB, the Executive Board, is headed by the President of ISTEB, who also serves as its Chief Executive Officer (CEO). The Executive Board members and the President are chosen for a term of 2 years. At the 16th edition of ICOBTE, which was held in Wuppertal in Germany, Professor Yong Sik Ok was chosen as the next president of ISTEB. Professor Ok will assume office on the 1st of January 2024, thereby becoming the first Korean to serve as president of the society.

  • A sustainable match
    In March 2020, Jay Hyuk Rhee was speaking at a Korea University seminar about environment, social and governance (ESG) business practices.

Rhee is a professor at Korea University’s School of Business Administration and the director of the university’s ESG Research Center. Ok is a professor at the university’s Division of Environmental Science and Ecological Engineering and the first South Korean to be simultaneously designated as a Highly Cited Researcher in the fields of environment and ecology, and engineering.
