Mission

We are a mission-driven organisation, with a “for-profit” model. Our mission is to make research a popular culture. 

Society should be an inclusive space where public, private, governmental, and non-governmental organisations, along with formal and informal communities, have an equal opportunity to contribute to the progress of our society, independent of their business model. We believe we can follow our mission by being a for-profit organisation, sometimes making a surplus and sometimes a loss. Being a mission-driven organisation also means that we adhere to a complex definition of Success, which revolves around measuring the progress made to achieve our mission and the velocity of our journey. The knowledge and skills we gain, the public support and trust we obtain, the partnerships we build, the financial results, and other possible outcomes are important to us for their purpose of supporting our mission-driven journey.

Vision

How do we approach our mission?

We foresee a society where research gains mainstream appeal, enabled by heightened transparency and deeper public engagement. Trust forms the backbone of research and is essential for its credibility.

Research should promote global peace, ensure universal access to knowledge, and support sustainability. We maintain that research is inherently a collaborative pursuit, demanding mutual trust in the integrity of peers and clear understanding from the broader society.

Values

We promote and celebrate honesty, transparency, hard work, and politeness.  We embed them in our daily work and we use them to build all our decisions.
