  • To exchange best practices between members and disseminate them among external stakeholders;
  • To improve the visibility of the sector among EU institutions and stakeholders by contributing to the debate around EU policies that may have an impact on the sector;
  • To promote and develop a high level of education and training, research and practice in the field of European jewellery manufacturing;
