CEN and CENELEC welcome the launch of the European Standardization Panel Survey

To gain a better understanding of industry’s needs for standardization deriving from Research & Innovation, the European Commission is planning to launch the first edition of a European Standardization Panel Survey. This survey will complement the recently adopted Code of Practice on standardization in the European Research Area, offering evidence-based results on the role of standardization in support of innovation policies.

The Survey will address a large-scale population of EU industry, ensuring a balanced representation of companies of different sizes and from a wide variety of technology domains. The results will be published at the end of 2023 and will ultimately support the development of recommendations for policymakers, industry representatives and standardization bodies.  


The work will be carried out by Fraunhofer Institute for Systems and Innovation Research, involving Prof. Knut Blind, chair of CEN-CENELEC working group STAIR (Standards, Innovation & Research). The initiative will leverage on the experience developed by DIN and DKE with the German Standardization Panel.


CEN and CENELEC welcome this initiative and look forward to supporting the launch of the survey, in line with the commitment to strengthen the links between standards and innovation as promoted by our joint Strategy 2030.
