2023 joins forces with ELITE-S to discuss funding opportunities for experts in ICT Standardization. 2023 project is an EU H2020 Coordination and Support Action with the central goal to ensure a neutral, reputable, pragmatic and fair approach to support European and Associated states presence in the international ICT Standardisation scene.

The project has built on the valid recommendations from its predecessor, [2018-2020], which focused on improving the existing Standards Watch, and delivered in February 2021 the “EUOS – ICT Standardisation Observatory” and continuing the effort of using the online facility as a reference point to comment, through a dynamic discussion forum, relevant insights from the standards experts.

ELITE-S will host a session on June 15th at 3pm (CEST) with distinguished guests Mr Francesco Osimanti, Project Manager & Vice Coordinator, and Dr. Nicolae Paladi, researcher in the Cybersecurity Unit at RISE and Lund Technical University and StandICT funded fellow in 2019. On this session, they will discuss the opportunities available for experts in ICT Standardisation to engage in terms of funding and support. We will also have the presence of Assist. Professor Ray Walshe, ELITE-S co-coordinator and supervisor and chair of the 2023 External Advisory Group who will provide insights on monitoring the global Standardisation landscape through the EUOS.
