A Memorandum of Agreement has been signed between the Simulation Interoperability Standards Organization (SISO) and the European Training and Simulation Association (ETSA). This agreement was signed for the enhancement of training and simulation activities, including standardization, which will accrue to the benefit of industry and government in the European Union, North America and other parts of the world. Both parties have committed to working closely together to develop a more formal relationship that is dynamic and iterative in nature.

Under the agreement SISO and ETSA will jointly promote all training, modeling and simulation opportunities throughout the world to its members, delegates and visitors. ETSA will support SISO in Europe, acting as its official representative. ETSA will work with ITEC Ltd. to organize a SISO seminar at the annual ITEC conference and exhibition. SISO and ETSA will conduct a bilateral meeting at I/ITSEC annually; its purpose will be to review the joint activity of the current year and discuss new activities for the following calendar year.
