2. Mission

iarigai is an association of research organizations - research institutes, companies, universities - with a focus on technical research and development in the fields of information, media and graphic arts.

The purpose of the Association is to promote science and research. Its objective as defined by the Articles of Association is achieved for the most part by organising scientific events, research projects and scientific publications.

The Association acts without self-interest; it does not primarily pursue profit-making objectives.

It is especially the assignment of iarigai to provide support in the following points:

a) Discipline redefinition

The Members of the Association are brought together by a common interest in a specific field of research and technical development. This field is developing and changing and requires a continuous process of redefinition through expansion and exclusion. The Association shall through its activities identify the discipline, both internally and with respect to other fields of interest.

b) Scientific exchange

The Association shall serve as a forum for the exchange of scientific and technical information in the research areas that the Members consider as important. This exchange shall support scientific and industrial progress, specialization, and international cooperation.

Research organizations face similar problems regarding funding, competence maintenance, recruitment, organization, etc. The Association shall also serve as a forum for discussions on operational issues in research organizations.

c) Social interaction

Research is carried out by individuals and groups of individuals. One of the most important prerequisites for cooperation and information exchange is personal acquaintance and trust between the involved individuals. The Association shall provide a forum for both formal and informal social interaction. The community of interest defined by the Association needs an influx of new ideas in order to develop. New members are necessary for an association to be viable.

d) Publishing opportunities

Respecting the need of its Members and the scientific community for publishing the results of their research, the Association shall provide appropriate publishing channels meeting international scientific standards.
