ICBA Technical Review 2016
The Technical Review Committee can assure the Program Committee of the Board of Directors of ICBA that their Center is well managed and they can be proud of the exemplary scientific record from the Center’s outputs over the last five years. The Center’s research vision is now well-placed to make a very positive contribution to several of the relevant UN Sustainable Development Goals, with particular reference to disadvantaged groups in the developing world. As such the Center should be in a strong position in the near future to attract a substantial amount of new special project and core funds and we predict fairly rapid expansion of the staff and budget in the period till 2023 when the current strategic plan matures. Yet, within this context we believe it is also vital that the Center continues to maintain its full international research persona.
