Academic Advisory Board
ISF’s Academic Advisory Board (AAB) is composed of senior university academics from around the world. The Academic Advisory Board has the task of helping to guide the systematic development of self-care theory and practice. Academic Advisory Board advice is in particular sought on the ISF R&D Agenda, including the funding and placement of studies. The Academic Advisory Board is accountable to the ISF Trustees.
The Academic Advisory Board does not have voting rights or any legal or financial fiduciary responsibility with respect to the Foundation. Academic Advisory Board associates are voluntary and unpaid apart from reasonable expenses.
