Position Paper - CEN and CENELEC input to Horizon Europe Strategic Plan 2025-27

This Position Paper has been prepared by CEN and CENELEC in reply to the European Commission’s consultation on past, present and future European R&I programmes with the aim of providing input on pre-normative research needs which could contribute to shaping the strategic orientations for the Horizon Europe Strategic Plan 2025-2027.

The European Framework Programmes for Research and Innovation (R&I) focus more and more on the impact of research and innovation to support the uptake of innovative solutions in industry and society in order to address global challenges. This strategic objective emphasizes the market relevance of standards for valorising research results. Standards can serve as a catalyst for innovation and help researchers bring their innovatives ideas and scientific results to the market.
