|Virtual Networks A "Virtual Network" is a group of Think Tanks identified by certain semantic and normative (ideological) commonalities (e.g. climate change scepticism). Such a virtual network constitutes a research field that differs from the study of formal networks. Formal networks are real in the sense of officially acknowledged and immediately open to empirical validation. Virtual networks on the other hand display shared ideas. Social network analysis tools can be applied to find out if or to what extent virtual networks are real networks that display linkages (membership in networks, personnel, resources etc.). Unconnected think tanks in turn can be considered special cases in need of explanation independent from network structures (unless we have to assume invisible, hidden or covered ties).||Paleoliberal think tanks|
Mises Protugal was founded in 2011. The Website is defunct since 2019. From the Website: "The mission of the Ludwig von Mises Portugal Institute is to promote the dissemination and teaching of the Austrian School in the tradition of Ludwig von Mises with a special emphasis on Portugal and Portuguese. This school of thought defends individual freedom, private property, the free market, a currency based on the gold standard and peaceful international relations; while opposing state intervention."

We used the DGs of the EU to generate a basic list of topics. This list is going to be steadily extended. However we try to preserve a persistent list of topics.
