STAND4EU is a two-year EU-funded project to identify barriers to standardisation and to establish an interface. The short questionnaire will be hugely valuable to our community. Please contribute to it here:

The purpose of STAND4EU project is to identify barriers towards standardisation in research and industrial innovation. This project will seek to establish the STAND4EU Interface to facilitate the collection and the sharing of information about the obstacles and associated remedies and best practices in the industrial and research and innovation community, standards developing organisations, public authorities and other relevant stakeholders.
