1 Standardization for R&D projects Patrick Guillemin Strategy & New Initiatives, ETSI Secretariat © ETSI All rights reserved © ETSI 2010

2 2 Contents European collaborative R&D programmes Mind the gap between research and standardisation Issues for standards bodies What ETSI has done ETSI Industry Specification Groups Real Results Contact

3 © ETSI th Research Framework Programme (FP7) All EU funded R&D activities grouped together 53.7billion to be spent between 2007 and 2013 Collaborative R&D projects, multiple partners FP7 ICT R&D has the biggest slice: 9.1 billion 1 - Pervasive and trusted network and service infrastructures (585m) 2 - Cognitive systems, interaction and robotics (193m) 3 - Components, systems and engineering (434m) 4 - Digital libraries and content (203m) 5 - Sustainable and personalised healthcare (174m) 6 - Mobility, environmental sustainability and energy efficiency (159m) 7 - Independent living and inclusion (73m) Future and emerging technologies (FET) (185m)

4 © ETSI National funding programme for collaborative R&D Funds allocated by each government annually Collaborative projects Managed through Clusters, or thematic domains CELTIC: telecoms ( 1bn ) ITEA2: software intensive systems and services (3bn ) EURIPIDES: smart system integration (1.2bn ) MEDEA+: microelectronics (4bn ) CATRENE: nanoelectronics (3bn ) EUREKA

5 © ETSI Also... Joint Research Centres (JRC) Commissions own research labs: DG JRC 7 Institutes throughout Europe Institute for the Protection and Security of the Citizen in Ispra, Italy ERCIM European Research Council for Informatics and Mathematics Network of R&D bodies in Europe Co-Operation agreement with ETSI infinity initiative

6 © ETSI Mind the gap European strength in collaborative R&D ICT markets are shaped by standards de facto, industry, fora, SDOs European R&D in ICT must lead to standards activity Developing new products, new services, new markets Driving, not disseminating Input is not enough – longer term participation is required

7 © ETSI Europes R&D projects are important to ETSI Collaborative R&D as a source of new standards activities ETSIs largest members involved, also innovative SMEs and research institutes Source of pre-standardization activities – be first in the market ICT Project Standardization Proceses EU support Standardization End: ES Contribution ETSI Effort

8 © ETSI Issues for standards bodies SDOs have responsibility toward R&D activities Reduce barriers to input from R&D projects Membership cost Participation cost Access to information Guidance and help in navigating an SDO Incubator or start-up groups for new topics Improve visibility of R&D project impact on standards Recognition for submissions Recognition for retained results Maintain dialogue between SDOs and R&D community

9 © ETSI What has ETSI done? Creation of New Initiatives team in Secretariat Help on creating an ISG, finding existing TBs, founding a new TB Incubator or pre-standardisation groups Industry Specification Group Workshops and events with R&D community Hosting at ETSI, and attending, listening Reduced barriers to access and participation Reduced membership fees and easier access For Universities & Public Research Bodies For SMEs Electronic participation Standards available for free on the internet Complete access with single username/password Partner in selected R&D projects

10 © ETSI Industry Specification Group (ISG) ISG mechanism can specifically address the needs of a forum or consortium Ideal for Pre-Standardization Bringing research results into Standards ISG can evolve into a full ETSI Technical Body Fast and easy to set up Minimum 4 ETSI members necessary, approved by Director General Flexible and adaptive ETSI Secretariat will provide basic support free of charge Specifications from an ISG are official ETSI deliverables Permanently in ETSI publications catalogue

11 © ETSI ISG Summary Industry Specification Group: a special type of ETSI committee Focused activity, designed for quick establishment Decides its own work programme, approves its own deliverables ISGs produce ETSI Group Specifications (GS) only All ISGs use ETSI IPR policy Well-established IPR policy, save time and legal fees compared with setting up a forum. Each ISG has its own membership Non-Members of ETSI can participate, under conditions Each ISG has its own budget Decided and paid for by its members, invoiced to them by ETSI Basic level of support from ETSI Secretariat Each ISG can set its own working procedures Based on ETSI Technical Working Procedures Each ISG can have its own voting system Recommended to use ETSI weighted voting, or 1 member 1 vote

12 12 Who can participate? Participation is governed by a Industry Specification Group Agreement Sets out the operation rules, budget mechanism, voting rules etc. All ETSI members can participate, if they sign the ISG agreement Also applicant members Includes agreeing to contribute to the budget according to this agreement Access to mailing lists, meeting documents etc. Non-members of ETSI can participate Subject to agreement of ISG chairman, or other ETSI member parties in the ISG Must sign a Participation agreement Must pay a fee (per meeting) Non-members of ETSI have no voting rights But they have access to mailing lists, and can get meeting documents © ETSI 2010

13 13 ETSI Secretariat Support ETSI provides basic support to ISGs meeting rooms with WiFi in ETSI premises meeting support for invitations, badges, etc. (meetings at ETSI) online meeting registration & meeting document handling tea/coffee in ETSI premises ISG info/meeting/document handling area on the ETSI Portal document storage area on the ETSI DOCBOX server (FTP & HTML access) one or more lists maintenance of the ISGs Work Items in the WPM database processing/publication of GSs (providing they have respected the ETSI Drafting Rules) © ETSI 2010

14 14 ISG Budget ISG can maintain its own budget Cost allocation between members detailed in ISG Agreement Annual budget report & plan supplied to Secretariat All expenditure performed by ETSI, invoiced to members according to ISG Agreement Typical items an ISG could choose to pay for Full time support, Technical Officer support at meetings Conferences or workshop or publicity event Dedicated Website/domain or Wiki hosting and development Technical support to committee, Technical Editor ETSI Special Task Force Expert development of specifications Development of test specifications © ETSI 2010

15 15 Legal ISG Agreement Must be signed by ETSI Members who wish to participate in the ISG Between ETSI and each member of ISG Identical agreement for all members Binding on all members of the ISG Agree to adhere to ETSI IPR Policy Distribution of costs among members Voting and decision making rules Details specific operational rules of ISG (beyond ETSI TWP) ISG Participant Agreement Must be signed by non-members of ETSI who wish to participate in ISG Binding on all non-member participants to the ISG Agree to adhere to ETSI IPR Policy Confidentiality requirement Templates of both agreements available Signatories to the agreements are effectively ISG Members © ETSI 2010

16 16 Limitations on an ISG ISGs only produce ETSI Group Specifications (GS) Specifically identified as coming from an ISG ISGs cannot handle activities Mandated by EC/EFTA ISGs should not handle the following: health, safety, environment, public interest and the basic legal/economic interests of consumer related issues © ETSI 2010

17 Setting up an ISG Minimum Four ETSI Members (or applicants) required Terms of Reference Basic work programme plans ISG Agreement (for ETSI members) ISG Participants Agreement (if non-members are admitted) ETSI Director General consults with Board ETSI DG makes final decision on creation of group 30 days notice period to all ETSI members ETSI Secretariat will manage this process Template documents available © ETSI

18 Real Results ETSI TC RRS – Reconfigurable Radio Systems Resulting from work in FP6 E2R, FP7 E3 projects Also EUWB, Joint Research Centre etc. ETSI ISG QKD – Quantum Key Distribution Results from FP6 SECOQC project ETSI ISG AFI – Autonomic network engineering for the self- managing Future Internet Partially results from the FP7 EFIPSANS project ETSI ISG MTC – Mobile Thin Client Computing Results from the FP7 MobiThin project © ETSI

19 Thank you For help and information... New Initiatives / ISGs / New TBs Gaby Lenhart, Ultan Mulligan and Patrick Guillemin and or © ETSI 2010

20 20 COPRAS guidelines FP6 IST project between CEN, CENELEC, ETSI, W3C, The Open Group Produced Standardization Guidelines for IST research projects interfacing with ICT standards organizations COPRAS raised some issues for projects: What to standardise? Choosing the right standards bodies Getting the timing right Funding – for membership, travel and time Which partner(s) participate IPR ownership, or who can contribute what?
