Standards as a Driver of Innovation LIMITED

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

At a time when Europe needs more innovation in order to remain competitive on the global stage, standardisation provides a bridge between research, innovation and the market, and can thereby make a
positive contribution to economic growth and prosperity.
CEN and CENELEC are fully committed to supporting the Horizon 2020 programme and helping to tackle barriers to innovation in Europe.
In this sessions panellists will present and discuss the European Standardization System, the role of standards in the innovation lifecycle, the role of standardization in support to Horizon 2020 as well as
concrete examples. The session will allow for interaction with stakeholders interested to understand and learn more about European Standards and their integration in research and innovation projects.
