This article examines different forms of technological collaboration between Member States’ public administrations as currently present in the EU, namely institutional and transactional, drawing from examples in two sectors – telecommunications and food. The article argues that different collaboration forms can be explored more systematically by policy makers when faced with techno-regulatory choices. It subsequently argues that when developing techno-regulatory tools for the implementation and enforcement of EU law, national regulatory authorities should place technological cooperation at the forefront of their policy considerations. It concludes with a plea for an increased reciprocity in technological collaboration based on open-source solutions.
