The staff at FBA includes senior researchers with a university background who conduct independent scientific research. FBA also supports research, through the international research working groups that the agency has established. The working groups are composed of eminent scholars from universities and other well-renowned institutes worldwide who conduct scientific research on issues related to FBA’s areas of expertise.
FBA organizes annual seminars and conferences for the members of the working groups, which enables them to discuss their ongoing research, methods and results to ensure their scientific quality and relevance. The members can also apply for research grants from FBA.
The agency also promotes knowledge-sharing between researchers, practitioners and decision-makers through the arrangement of dialogue forums.
FBA’s other work, for example our trainings and advisory services, also builds upon the findings emanating from the research conducted and supported by us.
