If TAFTIE is to be effective, a constant dialogue with other organisations involved in technology development and innovation is essential.
Internally, TAFTIE's member organisations decide on areas of mutual interest and pursue them for the benefit of all. Synergy is achieved by ensuring that activities are complementary, not duplicated.
Externally, TAFTIE favours close links with the European Commission. This provides additional feedback. This exchange of information contributes to better informed policy implementation. It also leads to a close working relationship with the Commission in accordance with the subsidiary principle.
In addition, working relationships with other organisations throughout the world will eventually be established.
