ICER bases its very essence on a collaborative effort by many researchers located in different places on Earth.
** Open Mindedness
An open mind attitude plays the most essential role in ICER‘s activities. Thinking out of the box is one of the most valued talents in ICER.
** Truth Oriented
ICER strives to research the truth on the Extraterrestrial presence on planet Earth, and rejects any form of thought based on cognitive constraints, i.e. dogmatism.
** Scientifically Oriented
ICER makes use of the scientific method of investigation as the standard method for its research activities.
However, ICER remains open to the use of different, non-conventional methods of investigation in case the standard methods of scientific research do not fit the specific typologies of investigation.
** Cultural respect
The respect for any kind of culture is another pillar for an organization like ICER, that studies and promotes studies on different races of beings.
ICER is intrinsically an open and outbound activity. Some phase(s) of activity(ies) could be kept restricted for the time needed to be properly completed, however.
** Not For Profit
The production of profits and the accumulation of economic/financial wealth are not found in the Vision statement of ICER.
This does not mean that in the course of its activities profits and/or accumulation of economic/financial wealth could not happen. In such case the profits would be used to improve the organization and in any case not as a purpose in itself.
** Non Violence
Although ICER activities could make it enter into contact with armed force services in various countries, ICER stands against the use of any kind of force/violence, institutionalized or not.
