External links with Smart Card and Telecom industries are of vital importance for ensuring a wide deployment of the NETC@RDS services. The collaboration between the project consortium and industries is established through the eHealth Observatory Network & Board of Business and Standardisation Partners devoted to increase partnership with standards and industry organisations.

Participation to the Observatory Network is open to all industries willing to cooperate for achieving the project objectives and to enhance the adoption of electronic health smart cards through Europe.
