IAS Values

\\  Science, and in turn our understanding of the world, advances as existing theories and explanations are challenged, refined and possibly supplemented by new insights. Much like biological evolution, science has no end point, but rather a continual contestation in the pursuit of knowledge.  \\

IAS Visiting Professor, HKUST
Reginald H Jones Professor of Corporate Strategy, University of Pennsylvania
\\  Innovation and persistence are two sides of the same coin—one feeds the other. Innovation is the bread and butter of every profession, and persistence is the means to execute.  \\
