Organisational Changes at the CROP Secretariat

The University of Bergen (UiB) and the International Science Council (ISC) have announced organisational changes at the CROP Secretariat.

1 December 2018



Joint Statement by the University of Bergen and the International Science Council:

"The Comparative Research on Poverty programme (CROP) is governed by an agreement between the University of Bergen (UiB) and the International Science Council (ISC). The two co-sponsors have now initiated a process towards the renewal of that agreement, including a reassessment of the programme's focus. The recent creation of the ISC [https://council.science/about-us] and the adoption of UiB's new strategy and priority areas [https://www.uib.no/en/priority-areas] provide a new institutional framework and open up additional possibilities for a re-thinking a programme on inequality and marginalisation more broadly. An international workshop in the first quarter of 2019, organised in Bergen by UiB and ISC in partnership with CROP's Scientific Committee, will explore how the programme can take advantage of this new context. UiB Vice-Rector for Global Relations, Annelin Eriksen, will replace Alberto Cimadamore as interim Scientific Director of CROP from end of November 2018 and until a new agreement is signed. UiB and ISC wish to thank and congratulate Dr Cimadamore for his achievements in the past 7 years in developing CROP's networks and advancing poverty research internationally."
