Strategy Development

The main mission of the ICN2 Strategy Development is to anticipate and provide advanced response to the challenges faced by the institute on the long and short term. This involves staying abreast of trends at the local, national and international levels, and working to strengthen the centre’s position and responsiveness to them. Internally it strives to lead by example to drive forward key organisational changes and alignment on matters that will shape the future of the ICN2.
