Balance is all.

TPN’s success in building and operating a unified network is based on maintaining the delicate balance between both political and business interests and American/European concerns.

This balance is secured by an organizational structure that:  

  • Balances political and business interests by way of Advisory Steering Committees in the United States and the European Union, chaired by politicians. This helps to encourage both broad political participation and the vital input of business as well as academic members.
  • Balances both American and European concerns by way of the TPN Board of Directors being balanced geographically, but no political or business participants. To help ensure their integrity as politicians, political members are excluded from being Members of the TPN Board.
  • Balances all political and business participants to take part in contributing to TPN events through participation and in helping to shape our activities through the TPN Programming Committee.
