Supporting European Experts Presence in International Standardisation Activities in ICT

Objective

StandICT.eu defines a pragmatic approach to reinforcing EU expert presence in international ICT standardisation. By setting up, managing & monitoring a continuous open call, StandICT.eu will provide a streamlined process supporting the participation & contribution of EU specialists in SDOs & SSOs in the 5 essential building blocks of the Digital Single Market (DSM), viz.: cloud computing, 5G communications, IoT, cybersecurity & data technologies. Through a Standards Watch, StandICT.eu maps & monitors the international ICT standards landscape & then liaises with SDOs, SSOs & industry-led groups, identifying gaps & priorities which match EU DSM objectives: These will become topics for the continuous open call. Engagement will be supported through a series of motivational drivers, maximising impact & high-level commitment to standardisation from a broad stakeholder base. Specifying & strategically addressing DSM standardisation challenges, StandICT.eu analyses how to bolster EU’s presence and influence in international ICT standardisation & importantly the business impact on digital transformation on industry & consumers in strategic sectors such as eHealth, smart energy, intelligent transport systems & advanced manufacturing. The Consortium Partners have a history of contributing to ICT Standards arena & consolidating a highly influential international network.
