StandICT.eu, “Supporting European Experts Presence in International Standardisation Activities in ICT”, addresses the need for ICT Standardisation and defines a pragmatic approach and streamlined process to reinforce EU expert presence in the international ICT standardisation scene.
Through a Standards Watch, StandICT.eu analyses and monitors the international ICT standards landscape and liaises with Standards Development Organisations (SDOs) and Standard Setting Organisations (SSOs), key organisations such as the EU Multistakeholder Platform for ICT Standardisation as well as industry-led groups, to pinpoint gaps and priorities matching EU Digital Single Market objectives.
These become the topics for a series of 10 Open calls focused on priority domains and a continuous cascading grants process, launched by StandICT.eu from March 2018, providing support for European specialists to contribute to ongoing standards development activities, and attend SDO & SSO meetings.
The 1st StandICT.eu Open Call closes on May 29, 2018 and covers key ICT standardisation priority areas outlined in the 2018 Rolling Plan for ICT Standardisation, including eHealth and active and healthy ageing, accessibility of ICT products and serivces, eSkills/eLearning, robotics and more.
