The group's activity is twofold: the development of research and analysis papers, and of public policies to help the government and decision makers.
The think tank is also planning a study on Romania's social structure and mobility.
On the public policy side, the group targets, among other things, investment in research and development, the publication of a guide for the drafting and presentation of international projects and policies for agricultural development.
