An international board provides support, advice, and a pool of possible networking opportunities for the institute and its members. Individual board members may be called on to act as referees. The board is purely advisory, and has no decision-making function. It watches over, contributes to, and assures the institute’s academic excellence; and inspires it by connecting to a wide range of topics and debates.
