International Scientific Advisory Committee

IBED has an International Scientific Advisory Committee (ISAC) consisting of Peers from international sister Institutes. The ISAC has an advisory role to the Dean of Science, and is called upon whenever the Director feels the need for an independent, external reflection on the past performance and future direction of IBED, like in the process towards the scientific review.
