Vision and Mission
IBSA Foundation Vision
“Going beyond treatment”: the Foundation is highly conscious of the benefits yielded by combining participation in cultural activities (role of the arts) with treatment journeys.
IBSA Foundation Mission
Our Mission is to promote a scientific culture which is both authoritative and accessible. It pursues scientific outreach, being part of an international scientific network, and supporting scientific research.
IBSA Foundation avails of two Boards: two committees of experts in cultural, academic and scientific fields who help bring together events, projects and partnerships.
The Advisory Board of IBSA Foundation includes influential figures from both academic and cultural spheres. The Scientific Board, on the other hand, sees representatives of international standing from the scientific community.
Both Boards are coordinated by Silvia Misiti, Director of IBSA Foundation. She is supported by Jacopo Crespi and Irene Belatti for Communication and Sara Comodo for Admin and Events.
