Do you know someone who has made a difference for standardization work?

For the sixth time, CEN and CENELEC open the annual call for nominations for the CEN and CENELEC Standards+Innovation Awards, which recognizes the important contribution of researchers and innovators to standardization. This year, it is possible for members to submit their nominations under three categories, namely:

  • Award category #1European research project which has successfully contributed to standardization;
  • Award category #2: Individual researcher/innovator who has achieved a successful integration of research/innovation and standardization by embedding standards development in innovation processes or by developing research outcomes that have been incorporated in standardization deliverables;
  • Award category #3: Young researcher who has addressed standardization in the work done for academic theses, doctoral dissertations or other university research projects.

Each member can nominate two candidates under each category, provided they have not been nominated previously for the same effort. The call will remain open until 30 June.


The winners will be announced during an award ceremony on 24 October in Brussels.
