IBR in numbers
In addition to the regular evaluation required by CONICET we realized the requirement of a comprehensive revision as a scientific community which allows monitoring the quality of science performed and future projections, identifying young researchers who can develop new lines of research, and improving the allocation of the resources. Based on this commitment in June 2011 a group of recognized foreing scientist has convened for our first institutional evaluation. This group was formed by Drs. Luis Herrera Estrella, Susana López and Mario Zurita from Mexico, Dr. Jerson Lima Silva from Brazil, and Dr. Ramón Días-Orejas from Spain, who reviewed each group’s presentation, interviewed researchers and advised about future strategies for the organic development of the Institute.
