Wednesday 21 September from 17:00 to 19:00
On Wednesday 21 September, the Institute for Competitiveness (I-Com), on the behalf of Deep-In Research Network, organised a policy debate on “EU STRATEGY ON STANDARDISATION. Setting Global Standards for a resilient, green and digital EU Single Market”. The event took place in Brussels at L42 from 17:00 to 19:00.
Structured in two panels, the event aimed to contribute to the debate on the EU approach to standardisation by bringing together a select number of high-level participants to discuss the EU standardisation strategy. The latter followed the Commission’s communication published in February 2022, which aims to set global standards to support a resilient, green and digital EU single market.
Specifically, Panel I explored the geopolitical implications of EU standardization policy both within the Single Market and globally. Panel II, on the other hand, focused on how standards affect innovation and on EU’s competitiveness. As such, the latter delved into the following topics: 5G, IoT and Standard Essential Patents (SEPs).
