INSA's current Scientific Committee comprises four members representing four disciplines (sociology, psychology, education, psychiatry) and four countries (Belgium, USA, Spain, France). A primary goal for the Scientific Committee is to advance INSA’s Mission to promote school attendance and respond to school attendance problems by compiling, generating, evaluating, and disseminating information about these topics. The Committee aims to build bridges for a coherent and coordinated approach to school attendance and its problems by crafting a shared research agenda comprising common goals and actions across jurisdictions. This involves developing research collaborations, securing support from national and international funding sources, and linking academic/research work with the work of other stakeholders such as educators, practitioners, policymakers, and families. The Scientific Committee is deeply grateful for the confidence entrusted to us to serve the INSA community.
