The CLEF Association is an independent no-profit legal entity, established in October 2013 as a result of activity of the PROMISE Network of Excellence which backed CLEF from 2010 to 2013.

The CLEF Association has scientific, cultural and educational objectives and operates in the field of information access systems and their evaluation. Its mission is:
* to promote access to information and use evaluation;
* to foster critical thinking about advancing information access and use from a technical, economic and societal perspective.

Within these two areas of interest, the CLEF Association aims at a better understanding of the use and access to information and how to improve this. The two areas of interest stated in the the above mission translate into the following objectives:
* clustering stakeholders with multidisciplinary competences and different needs, including academia, industry, education and other societal institutions;
* facilitating medium/long-term research in information access and use and its evaluation;
increasing, transferring and applying expertise.
