The participating institutions and companies in this project have set a goal to resolve medical blind spots, guarantee citizens' health rights, and further establish remote medical care systems for emergency response, disasters, and accidents, by transforming Gachon University Gil Medical Center Wirye into Smart+Building. In particular, this project is generating high expectations as a demonstration that targets on the development of related technologies, preparation of architectural environments, and improvement of relevant regulations for establishing Disaster and Emergency Smart+Building model. Additionally, the 17 organizations involved in the MOU including Gansam, plan to pursue research connecting UAM verti port for emergency patients, autonomous driving robot systems, smart medical support, and ward round robots.

Gansam selected as a preferred bidder for the proposal on the UNICEF Children's Global Village Experience Center renewal exhibition and construction.’   Welcome to UNICEF Children’s Global Village For the materials of the UNICEF Children's Global Village Experience Center, Gansam proposed economical and eco-friendly materials symbolizing UNICEF. In the main space, tents, boxes, palettes, and wraps are used, which can be seen in UNICEF warehouses and relief sites, enhancing the sense of realism of the experience center. Previously parallelly composed contents were rearranged to experience-oriented through new storytelling, and images and designs were updated to create an immersive exhibition environment.   "UNICEF's donation money is same as children's lives. Business expenses provided by donation should be cherished and spent to provide more attractions and experiences. In addition, I believe this experience should contribute to make more people become fans of UNICEF and eventually become supporters. It should not just be a construction project but a virtuous cycle process which generates more attention, participation, and donations. That was how we approached this project." - Jeongseung Lee   ■ Project overview · Project name : UNICEF Children's Global Village Experience Center renewal exhibition and construction · Location : 1F, 2F UNICEF Building, 60, Seogang-ro, Mapo-gu, Seoul  · Project purpose: This is to develop UNICEF's global warehouse space as an experience center, introducing UNICEF activities, missions, and five major projects (water supply, health, nutrition, education, and emergency relief) with experiential contents.
