Tools for CEN and CENELEC Members

National standardization organizations play a key role in promoting and supporting the engagement of R&I communities in standardization.

Tools are available to assist CEN and CENELEC Members in strengthening their organisation’s capacities, influencing decision makers and interacting with R&I communities.

If you want to have access to all the tools available, please contact your national contact for Research, Development and Innovation (RDI) or CEN-CENELEC Management Centre.


Standards in Horizon Europe 


In the past years the role of standardization as a bridge between research activities and the market has been increasingly recognized, both by EU institutions and by R&D stakeholders.


The European framework programme for R&D, Horizon Europe, focuses on market take-up of research results and innovation. Standardization is identified in Horizon Europe as one of the measures that will support this. This growing relevance of standardization in the context of research projects and the valorisation of the resulting knowledge is demonstrated by the growing number of call topics in which a reference to standardization is made.


The calls screened cover all three pillars of the 2023-2024 Horizon Europe Work Programmes released in December 2022.


References to standardization in the call topics in the Horizon Europe Work Programmes 2021-2022 can be found here:

This spreadsheet provides an overview of Calls made for 2023 and 2024 that have a link to standardization matters and as such present an opportunity for CEN and CENELEC and their members. 


A spreadsheet for an overview of Calls made for 2021 and 2022, completed in a combined effort by DIN and CCMC staff, can be found here.
