CEN and CENELEC joined the knowledge valorisation campaign in Greece

CEN and CENELEC, together with the Hellenic Organization for Standardization (ELOT), joined the Knowledge Valorisation event in Athens on November 29 to deliver a training on the implementation of the Code of Practice for Researchers on Standardization in the European Research Area.

The event was organized by the Greek Ministry of Development and the European Commission. It brought together representatives from Higher Education Institutions, industry, intermediary organizations, and decision-makers to discuss the challenges and opportunities in knowledge valorisation and explore collaborative actions and initiatives to address them. The gathering was also an opportunity to reflect on how the recommendations on knowledge valorisation adopted at European level can be tailored to the national context of Greece.


The event in Athens was the 7th of a series of national events taking place in the frame of a Tour de Capitales on Knowledge Valorisation promoted by the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Research & Innovation.


Previously, CEN and CENELEC had participated to one in Lisbon, Portugal.


The aim of the Tour de Capitales is to raise awareness on the guiding principles and the two codes by addressing all research and innovation actors: researchers, students, innovators and entrepreneurs, Horizon funds beneficiaries, research institutions, higher education institutions, standard development organizations, intellectual assets management professionals, and the business environment, as well as civil society associations and citizens, local and regional administrations, and policy makers.


More national events promoting the Code of Practice will take place across Europe in 2024.
