Description and Scope

StandICT.eu is a 24-month EC funded project whose most prominent goal is to tackle the need for a more harmonised ICT Standardisation landscape by achieving the following objectives:

  1. Increase the European presence in the international ICT Standardisation landscape
  2. Provide financial support to European ICT Specialists to join Standard Developing Organisations and technical bodies worldwide
  3. Ensure positive impact on Research & Business from a more streamlined ICT Standards scene

StandICT.eu managed to attain significant accomplishments throughout its lifespan supporting Experts coming from the most important ICT fields of the Digital Single Market as well as covering arising technology as defined in the ICT Rolling Plan for Standardisation.
Here some of the most relevant key-aspects:

  • 259 Funded Applicants
  • 500 Eligible Applications received
  • Successful coverage of DSM ICT domains such as 5G, Cloud Computing, Cybersecurity, Internet of Things, Big Data plus arising trends as Artificial Intelligence, ITS, eInvoicing and Smart Cities
  • Grantees from 20 European countries
  • Wide distribution of funds throughout European and International SDOs

In our Webinar, we wish to bring into spotlight the concrete impact of StandICT.eu on ICT Standardisation scenario by giving voice to the successful applicants coming from different background.

The Webinar will also be the chance to get a closer understanding of the Standards Watch, the new mapping tool of the principal activities in ICT Standardisation with the possibility for the ICT community to contribute through the WikiWatch feature.
