Code of practice on standardisation in the European Research Area

The new Code of practice on standardisation aims to contribute to the successful integration of research and innovation with standardisation. It provides guidance to researchers and innovators by, for example, identifying elements of good practice. It concerns research and innovation activities without any technology boundaries. It targets research and innovation actors within a wide range of technology readiness levels from terminologies and concepts, through testing to interoperability and performance.

The Code of practice is a hands-on guidance that provides a set of recommendations grouped under 3 sections:

  1. For higher education institutions and research and innovation organisations to build relevant capacities
  2. For beneficiaries of EU, national and local research and innovation programmes to take inspiration from best practices
  3. For the policy level, including European, national and local authorities and standards development organisations, to take into account recommendations that will help everyone to use standardisation as an effective tool to harness results from research and innovation projects
