ABCP is advised by an International Advisory Board (IAB) formed by renowned experts in the UK and China. Most members are researchers reaching the highest level of excellence, and some are high-profile senior managers in industry with experience of working with academia or working as individual researchers. The IAB is an independent body that is governed by its own members, and it interacts directly with ABCP’s Standing Management Committee on its long-term development.
