IFN promotes knowledge-based debate regarding enterprises as viewed from an economic perspective. IFN’s priority is making research accessible to people outside the scientific community. Solid research is always the basis for IFN activities. IFN primarily organizes academic seminars and other activities for researchers. On an annual basis the Institute also arranges a series of workshops open to the public. Topics for these workshops are derived from IFN research.
