ICA’s Standing Committees are either subject specific networks within the disciplinary areas represented by ICA or support networks for the development of education, research, internationalisation and innovation.
The Standing Committees are members of the ICA Council which acts as a forum for dialogue between all parties with a view to preventing unnecessary competition, and to benefit from cooperation and the resulting synergy. For example, this has been of particular benefit in past ICA led projects where IROICA, AGRIMBA, SILVA have jointly contributed to project development and execution.
