Research helpdesk 

If you have not found the information you were looking for, or if you want to learn more on:

  • how standards can support R&D and innovation;
  • why you should integrate standardization in your research (Horizon 2020) and innovation project;
  • what services we offer, 

please contact our Research Helpdesk. All requests will be treated with strict confidentiality.

You can also follow the Research Helpdesk on Twitter @Standards4RDI.

To facilitate the national interaction between the research and standardization community, a majority of CEN and CENELEC members have appointed a dedicated national contact for Research, Development and Innovation (RDI). Their contact details can be consulted below. For members which have not appointed a dedicated national contact, you can find their generic email address.
