1 The European Standards Organizations (ESOs) CEN, CENELEC, ETSI SESEC - Seconded European Standardization Expert in China Core curriculum elements - what courses about standards need to address The work of the European Standardization Organizations Klaus Ziegler ICES - Conference on academic standardization education and research Hangzhou, 27-29 June 2011

2 The European Standards Organizations (ESOs) CEN, CENELEC, ETSI SESEC - Seconded European Standardization Expert in China 2 European Standardization Organizations –CEN European Committee for Standardization Covers a lot of sectors –CENELEC European Committee for Electro-Technical Standardization Covers mainly the electro-technical sector –ETSI European Telecommunications Standards Institute Covers mainly telecommunication and electronic communication networks and services

3 The European Standards Organizations (ESOs) CEN, CENELEC, ETSI SESEC - Seconded European Standardization Expert in China Joint WG on Education about Standardization (JWG-EaS ) A joint Group of the three European Standardization Organizations, CEN and CENELEC members/ETSI Secretariat The JWG-EaS is there to foster best practice in education about standardization in Europe The JWG-EaS aims to help members: increase peoples fair and positive knowledge of standardization improve the understanding of the necessity of standardization amongst government officials, business executives and academia increase the competency of participants in standards-making

4 The European Standards Organizations (ESOs) CEN, CENELEC, ETSI SESEC - Seconded European Standardization Expert in China Why? We are always part of/involved in the same circles, talking to the usual suspects, while Europe is moving forward without really considering standards as we know them Very interesting event, very interesting people, lots of policy related discussions, real business talk, zero knowledge about standards (us) Quotes from results of CEN-CENELEC innovation team meetings with industry stakeholders

5 The European Standards Organizations (ESOs) CEN, CENELEC, ETSI SESEC - Seconded European Standardization Expert in China Europe Needs Action The paradox: CEN alone boasts 60.000 experts Standardization really is a multi-million (billion?) business Yet it is hardly ever taught as a discipline Business people see it as obscure technical stuff Experts age profiles are increasing, so is private standardization Other countries are devoting a lot of attention to this 2008 Council Conclusions on standardization and innovation The Joint Working Group has drafted a policy for us and our members to improve education about standardization We have prepared model higher-education curricula, were working on one for vocational training/LLL Challenge – to get academia to respond

6 The European Standards Organizations (ESOs) CEN, CENELEC, ETSI SESEC - Seconded European Standardization Expert in China Targets for our Policy Several specific target areas: Educational establishments and students – should ensure that all levels of formal education include elements of standards and standardization in the curriculum Business, industry, governments and public authorities - should enhance the knowledge and use of existing standards, recognizing their importance as a strategic tool and their impact on organizational effectiveness should be given appropriate understanding to enable them to participate in standards making processes Standards makers - need to achieve a level of overall competency, be familiar with the tools available to them and be capable to impart this information to others

7 The European Standards Organizations (ESOs) CEN, CENELEC, ETSI SESEC - Seconded European Standardization Expert in China The Policy Elements ESOs and their members should provide: Model standardization curricula (or at least a checklist of topics) for specific education levels Arguments to help convince academia to include standardization in curricula Easier information provision for students and teachers Best practices in training industry and federations in the art of standardization Audience-specific communication initiatives Certification of competency?

8 The European Standards Organizations (ESOs) CEN, CENELEC, ETSI SESEC - Seconded European Standardization Expert in China Towards a Core Educational Curriculum After the work of Henk De Vries and Dong Geun Choi Draft provided by Alberto Simeoni (UNI) The Joint WG has assessed member requirements Main challenges: Very different educational systems in different European countries Difficulty to persuade educational authorities to add material to well-established curricula Post-formal training about standardization poses different issues (and JWG is dealing separately with the vocational aspects)

9 The European Standards Organizations (ESOs) CEN, CENELEC, ETSI SESEC - Seconded European Standardization Expert in China An Educational Partition Primary education (up to 10/11 years old) Secondary education (up to 16/18 years old) Vocational education Higher education (colleges and universities) Post-formal education

10 The European Standards Organizations (ESOs) CEN, CENELEC, ETSI SESEC - Seconded European Standardization Expert in China Six Modules Modules 1 and 2 provide basic contents and are considered part of any level of education: Module 1: examples in every day life to raise a general awareness about the existence and importance of the standards (e.g. paper sizes, country codes, book codes, credit cards, exc.) Module 2: factual/fundamental contents to raise a general understanding of main concepts (more detail…)(more detail…)

11 The European Standards Organizations (ESOs) CEN, CENELEC, ETSI SESEC - Seconded European Standardization Expert in China Modules 3 and 4 Modules 3 and 4 are normally provided by higher education even if some simplified contents are present in secondary education: Module 3: Academic/theoretical aspects to learn and develop academic aspects of standardization, particularly standardization within disciplines such as business administration, law, engineering (more detail…) (more detail…) Module 4: Case studies to learn about the impact of standardisation in business practice (e.g. ISO 9001 quality management, ISO 14001 environmental management implementation, standards enabling compliance with legal requirements, etc.)

12 The European Standards Organizations (ESOs) CEN, CENELEC, ETSI SESEC - Seconded European Standardization Expert in China Modules 5 and 6 Modules 5 and 6 provide advanced contents and can be generally associated to the post-formal education, even though, especially for module 6, some references can be included also in higher education curricula: Module 5: Skill related contents to learn how to carry out a standardization-related task. They mainly provide communications skills about chairing and moderating a meeting, and managing consensus and negotiation also across different cultures Module 6: Application of specific standards to learn how to implement or use specific standards (more detail…)(more detail…)

13 The European Standards Organizations (ESOs) CEN, CENELEC, ETSI SESEC - Seconded European Standardization Expert in China Module 2 in detail – fundamentals to learn Major classificationSub-classification GeneralGeneral introduction, orientation DefinitionsConcepts and definitions FunctionsNeeds or objectives, functions and effectiveness HistoryGeneral history, evolution Types/ classifications of standardsGeneral, by who, by how, by what National standardization History, policy, strategy, role in the marketplaces, procedures, legal system, relevant organizations, impact and challenges, issues, finding standards in catalogues Regional standardization International standardization Conformity assessmentGeneral, types, and strategy, procedures, legal system, national system- accreditation, other nations, international, regional, multi/bi-lateral, mutual recognition agreements ConsumersUsers and consumers GovernmentGovernment and standardization, technical rules and standards, harmonised standards
