• to encourage independent expert opinions and introduce best practices;
• to bring experts together to explore issues and exchange views in order to generate innovative proposals for practical economic policy measures;
• to provoke public discussions on a wide range of economic and socioeconomic issues and thus inform and influence policy- and decision-makers and the society.
