Standardisation and standards can be valuable means for transfer, commercialisation, and valorisation of research results of the EC funded H2020 and Horizon Europe projects. However, processes of standardisation and activities of research projects have different dynamics, and general awareness of standardisation among researchers is low. This workshop aims to gather academia, standardisation professionals, and experts to discuss their experiences and lesson learned in standardisation training. Furthermore, this workshop will raise the question of serving the needs of EU projects in training standardisation skills – what skills are needed and how they can be improved.

Target Participants

  • Standardisation experts with experience in Training and education
  • EC-funded H2020 and Horizon Europe projects with an interest in standardisation.
  • Policy makers and decision makers.
  • Representatives from ESOs, NSBs and SDOs.
