Members of TAFTIE benefit from sharing their skills and expertise. This strengthens the national organisations and improves the quality of the service they can offer to their customers. Individual members assist each other in assessing their activities and in carrying out studies for cooperation in areas of technological innovation.
TAFTIE is already making a tangible contribution. It organises and contributes to a number of international brokerage and information events which generate R & D projects and assist companies in forming international partnerships. It is developing new mechanisms to assist companies wishing to co-operate internationally.
These mechanisms include the toolbox for organising investment fora, the guide for development and growth in SME's and the technology rating of projects among others.
TAFTIE does not confine itself to individual projects. It is also addressing larger issues such as the diffusion and exploitation of technology.
