There is a high, and increasing, level of engagement between the SKA Organisation, SKA Consortia, and industrial organisations. Early collaboration with particular groups therefore affords excellent international visibility. The Industry Engagement Strategy (see industry homepage) describes the overall goals, expectations, and principles for industry participation, plus the associated technical domains, linkage points, and procurement processes.
