Question?How can standards help innovation, and whatcould be the role of universities ? 2
Session 1• Standardization can create barriers because ofloss of creativity• Standardization is seen as not being dynamic:changes are difficult, the standardisation processtakes a lot of time• Research for standardization topics is consideredas standardization work and create barriers forfunding (seen as pre-normative research) 3
Session 1• Awareness about the possibility to spread resultsof research via standardization• Academic input could raise objectivity of standards• Collaboration between universities and industry inorder to develop new technologies• Information about technical content of standardsare included in some curricula (e.g. Eurocodes)• Lack of knowledge of the standardizationprocedures, why the process takes so much time… 4
Session 2• Standardization can be seen as a barrier to innovation but is also be a driver• Two different stages: idea + implementation.During the implementation stage standardization isan important driver• Know-how could come from internships• The content of the curriculum depends on thelecturer’s awareness and past or current experience 5
Session 2• Studying a standard is also an opportunityto innovate• Knowledge about standardization in CV isan advantage 6
Question?Session 3• Feedback from research to standardization commissions (e.g. to develop test methods,…) when active participation• Useful for multidisciplinary research activities• A standard is not always adapted to the needs ofinnovation (a innovative product may be covered bya standard which is not adapt to it)•… 7
Session 3• Some sectors need standards to innovate. Forsome others, standard may constitute a brake toinnovation.• Definition of standard: gives the state of the artabout a specific technology. Discrepancy betweenstandard and innovation• Spreading of research results could be better donei.e. the publication of TS or TR.• Request from academic world for more inputabout standardization knowledge (procedures,...) 8
Session 3• Lack of knowledge/awareness about the utility of standards• Costs for participation and utilization of standards• Provide awareness that education about standardization supports the industry
