Future Standardisation Education


The release of the Standardisation Strategy issued In February 2022, and the creation of the High-Level Forum on European Standardisation has put a major priority focus on activities and achievements in Standardisation.

Therefore, to kick start 2023, StandICT.eu 2023 in collaboration with the European Commission, will organise an intensive 3 hour Workshop covering the principal results and impacts that StandICT.eu 2023 has achieved with a view to demonstrate how the consolidated standardisation community has drawn some practical examples with the outcomes from the Technical Working Groups.
The event will be opened by the European Commission, and the content will demonstrate the synergies and collaborations with the PPPs and other associations, the success stories of our funded fellows, and the impact from some applications within a societal, economic and technological context. A dedicated track will be addressed on Training, Educational and Standardisation efforts and new calls dedicated to this with an eye also on new funded projects operating in Standardisation.
