edu4standards webinar

The project is set to revolutionise standardisation education across Europe, aiming to enhance teaching concepts in higher education. Recognising standards as pivotal to economic growth, the initiative addresses the current underutilisation of standardisation in both educational curricula and research.

To mark a significant milestone, EDU4Standards will officially launch with a webinar titled "Pioneering Standardisation Education in Europe" on Tuesday, July 4th. This event promises to showcase the project's objectives, preliminary activities, and its potential impact on standardisation education throughout Europe. Participants will gain invaluable insights into effectively integrating standardisation into educational frameworks, shaping the future and promoting sustainable practices. Trust-IT is excited to be at the forefront of communicating this project’s vision, with Maria Giuffrida welcoming our esteemed guests.

The webinar will feature valued speakers such as Gabriella Sestini from DG GROW, discussing the European Standardisation Strategy and valued experts from Fraunhofer ISI, Vilnius University, ISO, ETSI, and other leading institutions, sharing their perspectives on the current landscape of standardisation education. Engage in a lively panel discussion exploring the intersection of education and standardisation, crucial for driving economic and societal progress.

Whether you represent an educational institution, a standard-developing organisation, or industry, this event offers diverse viewpoints and networking opportunities. However, all individuals passionate about advancing education and standardisation are encouraged to participate.
