Harnessing the Network for Growth - SNIS Annual Report 2010
The annual report reflects the intensive year during which the SNIS has succeeded in maintaining the scope of its funding and networking activities, while it engaged an internal restructuring process geared at further improving its overall efficiency. This objective was achieved resulting in increased allocations for scientific projects. “Do more with less” was the intrinsic motto.
The past year was also marked by important investments for the growing network. The SNIS put considerable resources into IT development providing increased access to its resources, particularly for practitioners of international and non-governmental organisations. The empirical study carried out by the SNIS to refine its understanding of the collaboration patterns between academia and international organisations is another step in improving our networking services.
