About Main Organiser

Industrial Foundation is a think tank, which was set up in 2007 in Poland. The focus of all our activities is publishing expert, ideological social-political magazine Liberté! – a quarterly magazine in print and an online magazine www.liberte.pl. Our mission is to promote an open society, liberal economic ideas and liberal culture and to organize a social movement around these ideas in Poland.

Fundacja Industrial on behalf of Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom is the coordinator of 4liberty.eu network – a group of 15 think tanks from CEE (Poland, Hungary, Slovakia, Slovenia, Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Estonia, Lithuania and Germany). Our goals: to make the Central European perspective accessible to international audience, to be a reliable source of information on regional issues and the voice of region. Our authors are experts, intellectuals and researchers from CEE. We publish high quality analyses, polemics and articles exclusively in English, building bridges between nations to help in better understanding between experts from particular countries. Portal 4liberty.eu is designed to become a platform where experts and intellectuals representing liberal environment from Central and Eastern Europe can share their opinions and ideas.

Apart from publishing a magazine, the Foundation conducts a wide range of expert projects. One of the biggest endeavors was creating and implementing the Vision of Liberal Social Policy in Poland, which was executed in the years 2011-2012 in cooperation with the Stefan Batory Foundation.

The team of Fundacja Industrial conducts and supports many campaigns dealing with social and political issues in Poland, e.g. Open Pension Funds (OFE) support campaign, “Say NO to Financing of the Temple of Divine Providence Construction from Our Taxes”, “YES to Civil Partnership” or “Secular School” campaign.
