Description and Scope 2023 is a 36-month, EC-funded project whose most prominent goal is to tackle the need for a more harmonised ICT Standardisation landscape by achieving the following objectives:

  • To provide the vital financial support for European ICT Specialists to reinforce EU presence in the international ICT Standardisation arena.
  • To deliver a comprehensive ICT Standards Observatory (EUOS) that will become the central hub for the current and future generation of European ICT Standardisation experts.
  • To keep nurturing a vibrant community of Standards professionals by maximising synergies with ongoing initiatives and European and national level.

The 2nd of November marked the roll-out of the Fellowship Programme: a series of 10 Open Calls that will run until 2022 and provide € 3 million to support the activities of european ICT Standards specialists within Working Groups & Committees of SDOs and SSOs worldwide.

The ten calls will focus around macro-areas of the key strategic orientations of the Strategic Plan In The Horizon Europe Framework Programme. “ICT for Healthcare”, extremely relevant for 2020, has been chosen as the priority topic for the 1st Open Call, while applicants will be still able to apply for the wide range of ICT domains that form the building blocks of the Digital Single Market, as well as those included in the Rolling Plan for ICT Standardisation 2020.

This Webinar will feature European Commission representatives from the ICT Sector for Standardisation, the Coordinator and Partners of the project, and representatives from SDOs and will also provide a testimonial from the previous pilot project (2018-2020).
