Her editorial team will focus on new ‘grand ideas’, such as Industry 4.0 and Global Sustainability, and will champion a diversity of perspectives and cognitive approaches that reflect a truly global view of intellectual rigor and excellence. Rosalie’s vision for JIBS is to encapsulate the three primary values of AIB as reflected in its Mission, Vision, and Values statement, namely that of integrity, inclusiveness, and impact.
