Assistance for standardisation is a service provided to support project partners when the exploitation of one or more project results can benefit from involvement in the development of standards.
Standards represent one of the most important issues for business. They are crucial for facilitating trade and hence have high visibility among manufacturers. However, standardisation can be a complex process for organisations which are not familiar to it.
Once the service requested, an expert can analyse the results relevant for standardisation, define a strategy, identify relevant technical committees and assist the project partner(s) for the drafting of documents.
