Published by cip-library
2011 was an exciting year for CIP. We celebrated the Center's 40th anniversary and set into place a new organizational structure to lead CIP's management and research agenda into a new decade of growth, challenges, and opportunities. For this edition of CIP's Annual Report, we have chosen to feature some of the impacts of CIP's work, recognizing that much of the progress we measure today builds upon four decades of research investment and dedication.
