- Safeguard the continued availability of the World Database of Happiness on the internet.
- Secure that the latest version of that database made under the responsibility of the founder is saved separately and kept available on the internet and in appropriate data archives. Encourage that links to this original are made from later off-shoots.
- Promote further development and updating of the World Database of Happiness and facilitate the use of the collection.
- In that context, supervise spending from the Support Fund for the World Database of Happiness and eventually propose projects to be financed by this fund.
- Maintain a website on which the publications of the founder are available, preferably his complete homepage.
- If all the above needs no further support, advance the study of happiness in other ways.
