Between October 29th and 31st, 2019, the ITB was visited by its scientific advisory committee (see above), who made a series of recommendations regarding the institute’s strategic plan, which together with the strategic analysis carried out by the management team, resulted in the formulation of the following short- and medium-term objectives:
- Setting up of the new building’s facilities (management spaces, common service laboratories and animal facility). It is foreseen that the common management and service areas will be functioning during the first half of 2020. The ITB plans to participate in competitive calls for scientific infrastructure funding at the Regional and National level for the equipment required to set up the animal facility.
- Re-evaluation of the structure of the ITB’s research programs to adapt them to the current situation of the Institute and to favour the synergies between research groups.
- Maintenance of the requirements to access or keep the PI category and implement measures to recruit new group leaders.
