Andreea Gulacsi - In your experience what are the benefits of participating in EU research projects?
The main benefits we see are, first of all, and I would say the most basic benefit is not to reinvent the wheel, is not to rediscuss or readdress issues that maybe are already addressed in current standardization work. We're having standard's work on energy efficiency, we're having on e-vehicles, on all the new topics: smart cities, on all these topics that are very hot in the research innovation area, we address them also in standardization. So it's making that link. And I would say that's the main added value of standardization. And another one is to codify, to transfer the research, the language, the findings, the methodologies, the analyses, the test methods, to codify that into marketable products, into standards.
