An EEIG may: arrange sale of members' products; organize joint exploitation of partial licences in new technologies; coordinate members' production and delivery schedules; develop marketing for members; bid for and be awarded public works and public supplies contracts; implement joint research work; supply transport, purchasing, distribution or other services.
