Standardisation Booster for H2020 & HE research results will increase the European standardisation impact coming from H2020 & Horizon Europe Research & Innovation projects, by designing, launching, and managing a dedicated booster-type initiative. will draw from the positive and practical experience of the H2020 CSA and two previous Boosters (Common Dissemination Booster, CDB & Horizon Results Booster, HRB) and it will: a) Design and implement an effective range of Automated, Proactive, and Premium Services to boost standardisation results from European-led initiatives; b) Launch & manage a robust and efficient Facility to serve 1,000+ R&I projects over 24 months, also owing to an External Pool of Experts to support the Premium Services delivered; c) Deliver a Training Academy of next generation of standardisation experts; d) Enjoy steering from an authoritative Expert Advisory Group, tapping directly into the WGs & TCs of SDOs, tackling EU priorities, challenges & gaps.

One of the partners of the project is University of Belgrade, Serbia. is proposed by a lean Consortium of Partners with extensive experience in the Standardisation landscape Trust-IT Srl (IT), the Coordinator of and CDB, Dublin City University (IE), an active player in SDO WGs & TCs and in educating future standards experts, Dansk Standard (DE), with a track record in increasing European impact on the international standards scene, University of Belgrade (RS), experts in delivering training packages to support standardisation efforts, and SGS (ES), experts in certification. Principal outputs: The Service Facility, serving 1,000+ projects/organisations and providing feedback on the services received, 5 Open Calls delivering 500 Premium Services, 250+ experts contractualised, and 1,500+ people trained); 14 Webinars, 3 Workshops, 1 final event, 3 Standards Impact Reports, an engaged, multi-stakeholder Community of 2,000+ individuals in Europe, bridging the R&I community (1,000+ H2020 and HE projects) and the standardisation experts. is a 24-month European Commission initiative that will provide the European Standardisation Booster. The booster provides expert services to European projects to help them to increase and valorise project results by contributing to the creation or revision of standards. facilitates and streamlines the dialogue between Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe Research & Innovation projects with the Standardisation landscape and its main actors, namely corresponding Standards Developing Organisations (SDOs) to increase the European impact on (international) Standardisation and strengthen the European competitiveness.

The project comes at a right time to effectively respond to the main priorities (so-called urgencies) outlined in the recently released European Strategy on Standardisation, to speed up the pace of innovation through the development of efficient Standards that might be capable to accelerate the transition towards a more resilient, green and digital economy and to protect democratic values in technology applications.

Contributing to standards is often an objective of many R&I projects. However, the actual process to engage with Standardisation working groups, technical committees, focus groups can be complex to comprehend. This is where steps in. will provide consultancy services to guide and support beneficiaries and consortia of R&I projects to make sure they take the right strategic approach and contribute efficiently to the Standardisation process and to make them active players in the development of Standards in the corresponding area or domain.
