CEN Workshop on 'Mediation Grammar: a standard to enable migrants integration'

The CEN Workshop (CEN/WS) will develop a CWA aimed to provide a user-centred summative and formative testing methodology for public sector bodies and agencies willing to measure the extent to which local public service delivery (including offline and online modes) empowers refugees and regular immigrants in the fulfilment of their integration goals and in so doing, ultimately enables a full exercise of their acknowledged citizenship rights.

EN 50388-1:2022: A new important step to manage electrical compatibility in railways

Ensuring the electrical compatibility between rolling stock and electric traction systems is crucial for organizing a railway network. The train operating companies must be able to know the electrification parameters to confirm, after consultation with the rolling stock manufacturers, that risks of non-compatibility are minimized and that there will be no consequential disturbances on the electrification system.

CEN Workshop on 'Fracture toughness evaluation methodologies applied to advanced high strength steel sheets'

The sheet metal forming sector faces a major challenge with respect manufacturing of metal sheet parts, represented by the lack of adequate test methods to assess sheet formability and part performance at the product design stage. This is essential to be able to develop high-performance parts at a reduced cost with new high strength materials, such as high strength steel (AHSS). Such high strength makes them processing sensitive, so forming parameters and sheet properties must be assessed to assure a zero-defect production and part quality, avoiding unexpected defects that cannot be predicted at the product design stage using traditional experimental or computational approaches.
