The Institute of Ecology and Biodiversity is founded on a solid operational structure which allows us to achieve our strategic objectives and ensure professional administrative and financial management of the Institute. This structure includes an Executive Director – reporting to the IEB President and Project Directors – who is responsible for the design and implementation of the institutional work plan, and for ensuring effective management of resources. The Executive Director supervises the work of the Legal Advisor, the Administration and Finance Directors, and the Information Management Director. She also oversees the Technology Transfer and Development Unit and the Science Communication Unit.
These units were formed recently based on experience gained over the first ten years of the IEB’s existence, and they work together and in combination with the Institute’s researchers to strengthen our social impact and to broaden collaboration with our national and international partners. Their joint objective is to narrow the gap between science and the public, leading advances in responsible Earth management and sustainable development in Chile.
