Our Partners

The IDC would like to thank our members and supporters from around the globe for their continuing support during this year. Particular thanks go to the members of the International Advisory Committee and the Governance and Finance Committee who give of their time so generously and enable us to make our collaboration effective and global. Our gratitude is also extended to the participants in the 2016 Internship Program. Many of our partners do not sit on formal groups for the IDC, but their generosity and commitment to collaboration enables the IDC network to achieve far more than it ever could as one entity. Thank you all for your vision, energy and willingness to share your knowledge.
