International collaboration can take many forms. Of course we already have agreements in place with standardization bodies, which are outside our membership. But not only as we also carry out other important initiatives taking the shape of specific projects:
- Visibility grant agreements, co-funded by the European Commission, the European Free Trade Association (EFTA), the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI), CEN and CENELEC, namely SESEC, SESEI and the Europe-China Standardization Information Platform;
- Technical assistance programmes aimed at increasing trade with partners outside the European Union and EFTA by sharing with them the European model of Quality Infrastructure and helping them integrating in the international standardization system.
