Several of the calls issued under FP7 refer to the possibility of standards and standardization being included in the work activities or possible outputs of projects. Integrating standards and standardization in project proposals can amplify the impacts of future projects, as well as facilitating the dissemination and exploitation of research results.
The CEN-CENELEC Research Helpdesk provides support to and information on:
- how standards can support R&D and innovation;
- why you should integrate standardization in your research (FP7) and innovation project;
- what services we offer.
