Building the Standardisation Training Academy

Event date
September 27, 2022
Short description

The "Building the Standardisation Training Academy. Experiences and lessons learned from Standardisation Training in Europe" training takes place on 27 September between 11.00 and 13.00 CEST.
Standardisation and standards can be valuable means for transfer, commercialization, and valorization of research results of the EC funded H2020 and Horizon Europe projects. However, processes of standardization and activities of research projects have different dynamics, and general awareness of standardization among researchers is low. This workshop aims to gather academia, standardization 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.
The University of Belgrade actively contributes to this workshop - which is of relevance to all EU Member States and the Western Balkans!
