The inaugural meeting of IDEiA - QUANT TANK gathered initiators and supporters of the idea of creating an analytical think tank. The name "quant tank" emphasizes the need to support public debates with in-depth, methodical and reliable quantitative analysis and modeling. Business entities rise a similar demand for the purposes of assessing their market position, development planning and strategic decisions.
The initiative met with the interest of not only academics, but also people who are social activists or have been successful in business for many years. They see it as an opportunity for additional activity paths and expanding their competences.
It was indicated at the meeting that one of the key ways of external activity will be public expert debates on socially and economically significant topics.
