1 INTEREST Integrating Research and Standardisation

2 European Commission: DG Research in cooperation with DG ECFIN and DG ESTAT Framework Programme 6 Integrating and Strengthening the European Research Area Policy Orientated Research Project period: 1.11.2004 – 31.10.2006 EC contribution: 0.395 M€

3 General aim INTEREST will develop taxonomies of standards, of research outputs and of research-standards relationships and to contribute to the improvement of the interface between research and standardisation, and thus contribute to the effective diffusion and utilisation of research which is being performed in Europe

4 Aims Description of the state-of-the-art of the interface between research and standardisation Identification of rationales and incentives schemes within the research communities and to contact standardisation bodies Identification of the barriers that hamper the transfer of research results to the standards setting process Development of a taxonomy of standardisation products, covering both formal and informal standardisation bodies, and of a taxonomy of research outputs Elaboration of a taxonomy of current research-standardisation-relationships Definition of policies for the optimisation of the interface between research and standardisation, possibly differentiated for relevant clusters of technologies including the development of an approach to enable the identification of the most appropriate types of standards products for different research sectors

5 Overview of the workplan Empirical Background Research Case Studies Development of Taxonomies Validation and Dissemination Activities
