  4. Promote scientific dialogue between researchers, holding meetings, conferences, seminars, congresses and other activities;
  5. Promote the widespread dissemination of research results, supporting their publishing;
  6. Foster dialogue between the scientific community and society at large, establishing protocols and consortia with non-academic institutions while simultaneously promoting knowledge dissemination activities;
