The IFIA against the world financial crisis:

In the background of the present global economy crisis there is a social-ethical crisis, confusion about the basic values in the economy. This confusion is about the separation of financial and real economic processes, a deficit in the democratic character of the economy (the oppression of “smalls”), and the problem of invention and innovation.
One characteristic factor of the latter is the devaluation of inventions: neglecting the process of creating new solutions.

IFIA Anti-Crisis Declaration was issued by the ExCo on 11 September 2009, Budapest. Declaration > > > here

IFIA's main anti-crisis activity is thus about stressing the importance of inventions in general, and presenting new inventions, specifically. The IFIA would like to deliberate its motto:

“Inventors – Inventions – Innovation – Prosperity".

For this reason IFIA organized the following series of events see below.

IFIA has decided to fully support the activities of the EU in the framework of the European Year of Creativity and Innovation > > > EU news  therefore European IFIA Official exhibitions were part of this project European Year of Creativity & Innovation .
