Standards Academy Workshop: Developing leadership capacity for SMEs in European and international standardisation organisations

Wed, 15/11/2023 (13:00 - 14:15)Europe/Brussels


StandICT’s Standards Academy aims to improve the expertise, knowledge and overall skillset of European standardisation stakeholders. As part of its scope, target group-specific training materials and activities are panned out. This aim of this workshop, specifically directed at SMEs which are not yet directly involved in standardisation processes, was to develop their competences to lead working groups and technical committees in European and international standardisation organisations.

For this purpose, two experimented Small Business Standards (SBS) experts with leadership positions at ISO and CEN-CENELEC levels conducted the workshop and engaged in a direct exchange with the participants. Partners of the StandICT team will further outline the training possibilities and SME-targeted support activities offered by the project consortium.

The presentation material of the workshop and recording can be found here.
