EU publication: Handout on standardisation

The EU Commission has published a handout for researchers on standardisation. In compressed form, it provides information on the importance of standards, preparation, development and evaluation of appropriate processes and provides information on the successful completion of standardisation projects from previous EU research framework programmes. 

Work is currently underway by the European standardisation organisations CEN, CENELEC and ETSI for the standardisation strategy for 2020, which will come into force in 2014.
