On 2 February 2022, the European Commission presented its first Standardization Strategy. It strengthens European standardization in order to enhance the EU's global competitiveness and support green and digital development.
Standardization is an important part of innovation processes, as demonstrated in the forthcoming course Leading Innovation and Compatibility by Standardization. Standardization has great significance and potential when it comes to the growing and evolving data economy in particular.
In order to be successful, companies and public organisations have to consider their impact on the people and world around us. Narrow-minded profit-seeking does not go far when stakeholders demand responsibility.
The European standardization organisations CEN and CENELEC have published their common strategy towards 2030. The Finnish Standards Association SFS, too, has recently published its Strategy 2030. Both strategies strive to promote European success in the changing world.
