A more active form of gathering (targeted) information is by buying studies, assessments and advise, and organising in-house dinners, drinks (seat catering) and restaurant meetings, seminars, workshops, trainings and fact finding missions.
The gathered information is interpreted in order to multiply (collective) or self-produce (tailored) the information suitable for the added economic and social value. Before self-producing or multiplying the information is litmus tested on the ethical, fraud avoiding (no corruption, no money laundering, no economic espionage), sustainability and corporate social responsibility aims of the association and its creative entrepreneurial, innovative, multidisciplinary, sharing economics, triple helix, internationalisation and competitiveness merits.
