As the I.N.A.F.’s policy development office, N.D.B.I. is also in charge of coordinating the engagement strategies towards ground-based and space-based international large scale projects, towards all programs focused on fostering new cutting-edge technologies, and of advising the I.N.A.F.'s governance about strategic engagements issues.

The Division is the formal Industrial Liaison Office to Italy for most of the organizations acting in the Astrophysical R&D domains operating both by an IGO status, such as ESO, as well by an international coordination structure, as SKA and CTA currently are.
