Standardization in Horizon2020 - January 2013

  1. 1. Standards as a bridge to the market Andreea Gulacsi, Research Integration Unit Manager CEN-CENELEC Management Centre
  2. 2. Policy Context Standardization Buzz?  Commission Communication to Council, 2008  Council Conclusions, 2008  The Innovation Union, 2008: “Standards play an important role for innovation”  Regulation on European Standardization, 1025/2012: “Standards can help to bridge the gap between research and marketable products or services” © CEN-CENELEC 2012 - 2
  3. 3. Who we are: The European Committee for Standardization The European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization The European Telecommunications Standards Institute = the European Standards Organisations (“ESOs”) + 33 full members + international standards bodies (ISO, IEC, ITU-T) © CEN-CENELEC 2012 - 3
  4. 4. © CEN-CENELEC 2012 - 4
  5. 5. Where we fit in: International International Europe National ISO IEC ITU CEN CENELEC WTO WTO ETSI Membership NSBs for CEN & CENELEC Companies for ETSI EC EFTA National authorities Industry, other stakeholders, standards‘ users... © CEN-CENELEC 2012 - 5
  6. 6. What we do  We provide a platform for stakeholders in a specific area to come together  We facilitate consensus at European level  We help ensure principles of transparency, openness, coherence, consensus  We develop European consensus documents  We help build support for the European Single Market  Links to legislation  Links to public policy © CEN-CENELEC 2012 - 6
  7. 7. Horizon 2020  EC proposal for a 80 billion euro research and innovation funding programme (2014-2020)  A core part of Europe 2020, Innovation Union and European Research Area  Responding to the economic crisis to invest in future jobs and growth  Societal needs – livelihood, safety and environment  Strengthening the EU’s global position in research, innovation and technology © CEN-CENELEC 2012 - 7
  8. 8. Three priorities Excellent science Industrial leadership Societal challenges
  9. 9. Horizon 2020 standardization links “Stronger support will be given to the market take-up of innovation, including by the public sector. This will include more proof-of-concept, piloting and demonstration. It will involve a better use of the potential of research infrastructures, as well as setting technical standards, precommercial procurement and strengthened loan and equity financing.” Identified support organizations: © CEN-CENELEC 2012 - 9
  10. 10. Standards in Horizon 2020 Calls Screening of the calls for proposals identified standardization in +/165 topics as follows:  Mapping of relevant standards  Standardization gap analysis  Development of new standards  Development and implementation of standardization roadmaps (may include international cooperation)  Etc Even if not specifically mentioned in the call standards can be identified by project proposers. Standardization bodies can be included in the consortium. This should be addressed at proposal stage. © CEN-CENELEC 2012 - 10
  11. 11. Horizon 2020 – calls extracts SPIRE-04-2014: Methodologies, tools and indicators for cross-sectorial sustainability assessment of energy and resource efficient solutions in the process industry Scope: Strategies should be proposed to work with value chain partners, public authorities and final users, in particular to meet expectations in terms of relevant sustainability assessment (e.g. standards, labelling), and create a broad range of options to raise awareness levels and understanding of sustainability. Collaboration with standardisation bodies should be addressed. BG-06-2014: Delivering the sub-sea technologies for new services at sea Scope: Where relevant, activities should cover the development of European standards. EeB-01-2014: Materials for building envelope Scope: Standardisation aspects can be considered particularly in relation with the work carried out in CEN/TC 350. NMP-06-2015: Novel nanomatrices and nanocapsules Scope: Safety considerations and contribution to standardization should be an integral part of the projects. Expected impact: Identification of gaps in standards, paving the way for future pre-normative activities in the field. © CEN-CENELEC 2012 - 11
  12. 12. Armoury of standardization ‘tools’ Fundamental Terminology, conventions, signs, symbols Test methods and analytical methods Specifications for products, services, systems, performance Organization and management system standards © CEN-CENELEC 2012 - 12
  13. 13. Documents we produce:  Developed in a Technical Committee following the national delegation principle:  European Standard (EN) – identical in 33 countries  Technical Specification (TS) – first trail/ pre-standard step  Technical Report (TR) – informative  Direct participation model mostly used in R&D context:  CEN-CENELEC Workshop Agreement (CWA) – agreement between interested parties, open participation  eg CWA “Fuels and biofuels – pure plat oil fuel for diesel engine concepts – requirements and tests methods’ developed by FP7 project 2ndVegOil © CEN-CENELEC 2012 - 13
  14. 14. The Integrated Approach Research project development Identify new areas Screen existing standards and needs Draft programmes and proposals Select based on standards need/potential Perform research project Identify standards potential of project results Protect, diffuse & implement project results Use standards & standardization as transfer channel Evaluate research programme & project results Standards and standardization as output evaluation criteria © CEN-CENELEC 2012 - 14
  15. 15. Good practice for a project proposal The support a CEN or CENELEC member gives to the standardization process as part of a research project can be broken down into:  Step 1 – Analysis of standardization potential (state of the art, gaps etc)  Step 2 – Liaison Organisation status (if applicable)  Step 3 – Proposal for new standardization work (WS, input to existing work, new standards etc)  Step 4 – Guidance and support on standardization process  Step 5 – Publication of the final deliverable (note: CEN-CENELEC keep copyright!) Note: the Research Project has to ensure the necessary funding (e.g. for a Workshop secretariat) is included in the budget © CEN-CENELEC 2012 - 15
  16. 16. CEN-CENELEC participation policy “CEN and CENELEC as organizations will not join a research project as a partner. A CEN or CENELEC national member, representing CEN or CENELEC, can join a research project”  CCMC-staff not eligible for FP-funding  Only a national member (NSB/NC) can take the secretariat of a technical group developing our deliverables  Contact with the National Standardization Bodies is facilitated through the Research Helpdesk and a network of “Correspondents” on Research & Innovation issues at national level (RDI-COR) © CEN-CENELEC 2012 - 16
  17. 17. Useful Resources & Tools CEN-CENELEC Research Helpdesk RDI CORrespondents network @ national level  Horizon2020 specific web-pages (in construction) FP7 Guide to project proposers (revised to reflect Horizon 2020) Success stories in FP projects Factsheet on IPR & Standards Twitter @Standards4RDI © CEN-CENELEC 2012 - 17
  18. 18. BRIDGIT Project  Started in January 2013 with a focus on bringing the standardization and innovation communities closer together (Bridge-the-Gap)  Outputs (expected mid 2014):  Tools for researchers to understand and address standardization (in construction)  Tools for standardizers to understand and engage with innovation  National information events  Guidance material for researchers  European conference © CEN-CENELEC 2012 - 18
