Maximising quality and efficiency of standards through normative research (MAXIQUEST-NORM)


The project aim is to improve mutual awareness and initiate sustainable measures that will improve integration between the suppliers and users of normative research. There are a number of barriers to integration and transfer of relevant research results into standards that have been highlighted in previous studies. Better integration will contribute to wider policy objectives of the EU by maximizing the quality of European standards and efficiency of the standardization process. The project consists of a user survey in 3 EU States, awareness workshops for suppliers & users of normative research, and a Congress to disseminate the results to influential stakeholders. It is expected that a European Thematic Network for normative research stakeholders will emerge from the Congress. The consortium includes CEN, 3 National Standardization Bodies and a leading NMI with extensive experience of both research and standardization.
