The Institute for Basic Science (IBS) held 'IBS Forum for Another Leap Forward' on October 12, 2018. The Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) members, IBS directors, and the IBS president had in-depth discussion on the roles, responsibilities, and future directions for IBS to move forward.
The declarations pronounce IBS commitments and hopes for IBS to make another great leap forward to become a global research institution.
IBS commitments include its efforts i) to serve as a catalyst for research collaboration at home and abroad; ii) to ensure scientific excellence as the value that we cannot compromise on; iii) to foster and bring in young talents; iv) and to communicate with the civil society to earn their support.
The IBS declarations also describe IBS hopes i) that scientific research continues to be provided with a stable and predictable support ii) and "implicit support at arm’s length" is maintained, facilitating an environment conducive to creative research.
IBS has been upholding four guiding principles – excellence, openness, creativity, and autonomy – to promote scientific research motivated purely by intellectual curiosity to study the fundamental principles of nature. Thus, the participants agreed that the four principles should remain as the driving force for IBS to make another great leap forward.
