Standardization is increasingly seen as a bridge between research, innovation, and the market, and as a means of capturing and disseminating knowledge, standards have a central role to play in supporting innovation.
Innovation, and the capacity to harness and bring innovative goods and services to market, has been identified in countless policy statements as being vital for boosting European competitiveness. Standards provide an important basis for developing solutions and ensure wider dissemination of research results.
European research projects can take full advantage of the benefits and opportunities offered by European standards, but often don’t know how. This European Conference will offer you the opportunity to engage with leading experts on innovation and standardization issues to discuss, challenge, and learn how standardization can facilitate and further European innovation. Speakers will include representatives of standards bodies and researchers at national and European levels.
This conference is supported by the European Commission (DG Enterprise and Industry) and EFTA.
