    The World Standards Day, celebrated internationally on 14 October, puts the focus on the benefits of standards and harmonised measurements for global and regional economies, as well as for societies. Around 70% of the JRC work is related in one way or another to standardisation. Our scientists provide scientific and technical support in a range of areas from environmental monitoring to critical infrastructure protection, and from food and feed safety to nuclear safety and security.

    The JRC is addressing the challenges of standardisation in a two-day event, with a special focus on Eco-Innovation. Organised jointly with the European Association of Research and Technology Organisations (EARTO), the European Standards Organisations (CEN and CENELEC) and the European Commission Directorate-General Enterprise and Industry, this initiative aims at linking the science, industry, standards and policy-making communities in order to facilitate the screening of emerging areas and identify early needs for standards.
