Pillar 2: Innovative industry for citizens

Session 2.5 – Standard setting

31 October 2018, 11:00-12:00, room STRAUSS 2

For many years, the EU internal market system and the position of the EU international market environment have supported industrial development. However, the uptake of enabling technologies for various applications in different sectors raises complex issues. The session will look at current challenges, such as the slowness of nanotechnology testing methodologies that lead to delays in accessing European markets for some products, standards to facilitate interoperability for products having various applications, efficiency on Europe’s factory floors.
