This organisation may not be a traditional think tank. We have included it in this list as we deem it to be a 'boundary' organisation – in other words, it might have some qualities or characterstics of a think tank.
The IUF is an economically liberal lobby organization and think tank based in Berlin. Oliver Knipping is the chairman. Self-declared goals are to actively work towards a change in politics by working with German and international experts to develop, demand and propagate market economy reforms, to influence public opinion and to advocate an economic policy that creates the basis for entrepreneurship and free competition. There are interdependencies with the climate change denier organization European Institute for Climate and Energy (EIKE). For example, Charles B. Blankart, who sits on the board of the IuF, explained that EIKE and the Institute for Entrepreneurial Freedom were "almost the same thing".
